There's a ton of anticipation for the 2020 schedule, especially with uncertainty if the league will actually be able to play a normal 17-week schedule on its normal timeframe.
No matter how it lays out, New England won't have it easy in 2020. In addition to not having Tom Brady under center, the Patriots have seven games against playoff teams from 2019, including both Super Bowl participants (Bills x2, 49ers, Ravens, Chiefs, Texans, Seahawks). New England will also have a lot of miles on its road schedule in 2020, with away games at the Rams, Seahawks, Chargers, Chiefs and Broncos.
So how will the schedule lay out? And will Belichick have to say about it?
We'll soon find out... unless his dog Nike ends up in his chair when the NFL Network tries to talk to him.
