At 7:30 pm tonight, the dates and times for the schedules of the 2020 NFL season will be released. The New England Patriots will have the hardest schedule in the NFL for this upcoming season. The Patriots have the toughest strength of schedule with a .537 strength schedule. Following the Patriots in the top three toughest schedules are the Jets with .533 and the Miami Dolphins with .529. The Patriots will have to play against eight of the 2019 playoff teams.
The Patriots will be having some tough games, both on the road and at home. They will have road games in Kansas City, Seattle, Houston, and twice in Los Angeles. The Patriots will also have division games in Buffalo, New York (Jets), and Miami, which will not be a fun time. The Patriots will not only have to deal with those tough games on the road but will also have to face arguably two of the best playoff teams in the 2019 season at home: the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.
What This Tough Schedule Means for the Patriots
The Patriots will most likely struggle throughout the season, considering all the new additions to their team. It can also be a season of learning and gaining a lot of great experience against these tough opponents. The Patriots have lost a lot of their great players like Brady, Gronkowski, Develin, and more, which can be a reason to believe the Patriots will struggle a lot this season. After all, Brady was drafted in the sixth round, after six other quarterbacks and look what he did for the Patriots. The Patriots have drafted ten players in seven rounds, and the Patriots have a lot of new talent on their roster. This schedule could be a struggle, but it will just prepare the young team for the future.
