    Strength of schedule for all 32 NFL teams: Which teams have the hardest, easiest schedule for 2020?

    Determining the NFL team that has the toughest schedule is an inexact science because of the unpredictable nature of a given season; the same goes for determining the team that has the easiest schedule. Strength of schedule rankings are impacted by offseason events like NFL free agency and the draft, which alter projections for all 32 teams. So, as always, the only way to objectively determine who has the hardest and easiest NFL schedules in 2020 is a glance at their opponents' records from the previous season.  Over the course of the 2020 NFL season, we likely will learn that the teams pinned with the toughest and easiest schedules did not actually have the toughest and easiest schedules. For example, the team with the easiest schedule in 2020 based on its opponents' win percentage last season is a defending division champion. But that team's division should be stronger in 2020, meaning its schedule will be harder than anticipated.
     
    Below are the details of those teams' schedules, plus a complete ranking of all 32 teams based on 2020 strength of schedule.

    Toughest NFL schedule in 2020

    New England Patriots (.537 opponents win percentage)

    Home Away
    Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills
    Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins
    New York Jets New York Jets
    Arizona Cardinals Houston Texans
    Baltimore Ravens Kansas City Chiefs
    Denver Broncos Los Angeles Chargers
    Las Vegas Raiders Los Angeles Rams
    San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks

    Thanks to the lowly Dolphins and the average-at-best Jets, the Patriots are dragged down by the 2019 records of their divisional opponents (44-52). But their rotational opponents in 2020 are tough. (And the Dolphins and Jets should improve in 2020.)

    New England draws Super Bowl-champion Kansas City in addition to first-place opponents Baltimore and Houston. And like everybody else in the AFC East, the Patriots have to play against the NFC West, one of if not the best division in football.

    New England has seven matchups with teams that won 10 or more regular-season games last year.

    Easiest NFL schedule in 2020

    Baltimore Ravens (.438 opponents win percentage)

    Home Away
    Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals
    Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns
    Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers
    Dallas Cowboys Houston Texans
    Jacksonville Jaguars Indianapolis Colts
    Kansas City Chiefs New England Patriots
    New York Giants Philadelphia Eagles
    Tennessee Titans Washington Redskins

NFL once again helping the Pats. Lil' Bill is in tank mode for Lawrence. This schedule will help them.

If there is a team picking at #1 with a FQB already on the team, Bill has a ton of picks to trade up. All Bill needs is to suck enough to be inside the top 10. They will be.

Ravens / Chiefs....... book it.

There will be a 16, 14, and possible 12 game schedule I hear they are working on

That may also be why there are rumors the first 4 games are afc vs nfc so if they have to scrap the first month of the season all division games remain.

They have us flying out the LA twice? That’s bullsh*t

Everyone in the division has a lot of travel this year. Be nice if the schedule gods could make those two LA games back-to-back, though.

I doubt the games are played in teams own stadiums unless a vaccine is ready by November

Amazing how the ravens get the easiest schedule

 

Goodell is a clown

You don't understand how the schedule gets made?

Every team plays:

Each team in its own division x2 = 6 games

Each team in one division in the opposite conference (Divisions are matched up in a rotation - this year, the AFCE plays the NFCW. Next year we get the NFCS, then NFCN, then NFCE again, etc.) = 4 games (10 total)

Each team in one division in its own conference (again, in a pre-set rotation; this year, AFCE plays the AFCW, AFCN gets AFCS) = 4 games (14 total)

The team in the other divisions in its conference that finished in the same spot as them last year (Jets were 3rd in the AFCE in 2019 and play the AFCW, so we get last year's 3rd place teams in the AFCN and AFCS) = 2 games (16 total)

For the Ravens, that means 6 games against the other AFCN teams, 4 against the AFCS teams, 4 against the NFCE teams, and 2 against the first place teams from the AFCE (Pats) and AFCW (Chiefs). Turns out that, by last year's win%, that's the easiest schedule in the NFL (playing the Bengals 2x & the Ravens 0x will do that).

Goodell had exactly zero input into the Ravens (or Pats, or Jets, or anyone's) opponents.

So who's the clown again?

There's no way Bill Belichick is tanking a season. He's like 40 wins away from being the all-time leader. Doable in four years, then he can hang them up with that record in his pocket, too. He also wants to demonstrate he can win without Brady. 

We can talk about ripe pigs until we're blue in the face, but I'll be very surprised if the Cheats finish any lower than 2nd place in the division this year.

If the Patriots have the toughest schedule, we're very likely in the top 5 toughest schedules as well, with the Bills and Dolphins in that group too. 

The only difference between our opponents and NE's are they play the Ravens and Texans while we face the Browns and Colts.  Yes, the Ravens and Texans went 14-2 and 10-6 while the Browns and Colts went 6-10 and 7-9, respectively, but in the grand scheme that can't have an enormous impact in the average winning %.

Easy to obsess over this stuff but if we have a better OL and Sam lifts his game it shouldn't stop us from winning 10 games.  Plus, everyone in our division has pretty much the same schedule.  So let's not use our schedule as an excuse please.

It always amazes me, this time of year, when posters start complaining about various teams strength of schedule.

Especially those posters who between this board and JI have been posting for DECADES.

Yet still, somehow, they don't understand that the schedule is on a rotation and there's no consipriacy to give team A and easier schedule then team B.

How do the jets have a tougher strength of schedule than the bills? Don’t we have the same schedule except the bills play 2 2nd place teams and the jets play 2 3rd place teams? ( colts, Browns ) 

Becuase the Bills 2019 record is factored into our opponent schedule (10-6 record x2) while the Jets 2019 record (7-9 x2) is factored into theirs.

Isn't that as simple as they play us twice and we play them twice and they had a better record than we did last year.

Call me paranoid but I'll bet the Jets hardest games are the first six or seven games. It seems to me the NFL would love to see the Jets get off to a bad start. The talking heads and beat writers will be screaming for Gase to be fired. Not to mention the SOJF who delight when they can fly planes and put up billboards.

We fly to the west coast 3 times

I believe the Jets had the least amount of travel of any team in the NFL last year.  In fact, a pure guess.....it may have been fewest miles traveled in total of any team in years.

Out of 8 games, their 3 biggest trips were to Jacksonville, Miami and Cincinnati (the farthest West they went all year).  Other road games included driving down the turnpike to Philly, heading down to Baltimore and Washington, DC, and then up to Buffalo and Boston.

Think about that, other than Cincinnati, OH, the farthest West the Jets traveled was Jacksonville, FL!

The Jets will pay for that ease this coming year....probably traveling more than any other team.

Not sure if any site tracks total travel miles per team in a year but that would be interesting.

Fish are rebuilding, the pats should be tanking and the bills have Josh Allen at QB. If we are a good team we should be in the running for the playoffs.

These schedules are based on rotations amongst divisions and also the place a team comes within their division in the prior year. 

The only thing the NFL has say in is what part of the year the matchups are played.

The divisions of who plays who is determined on a rotating schedule.   It just works out that way.

I hate Goodell, but this isn't on him.
