Amidst various speculations, the schedule of NFL 2020 was finally revealed on May 7. With coronavirus pandemic messing up most of the usual sports plans, it was a relief to get to know that football won't be missing for long. With the new schedule all set, America is hoping to be able to see the games from the stands. Although it seems unlikely under current circumstances, fans don't want to be met with despair. 

The New 2020 Schedule

Putting an end to all the suppositions, the National Football League released its schedule recently. It is a fully packed schedule keeping teams busy juggling between games. The 2020 season will begin on September 10, as the NFL Kickoff Game is brought to daylight. The fans will have to wait until next year for the playoffs, which are scheduled to start on January 9, 2021. 

As far as the most awaited championship is concerned, the Superbowl LV will conclude on February 7, marking the end of the season as well. This final game will be hosted at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The regular season extending over 17-weeks will conclude on January 3, 2021. The season will then move on to the next stages. 

Currently, the NFL is reluctant about cutting down on any games and plans to move ahead with the complete schedule as before. They don't want to let the COVID situation affect the games. However, if the need arises, alterations will be made in the schedule as told by Commissioner Goodell. 

The NFL has already put off the international games due to logistic issues, which will be difficult to manage as the movement of players won't be easy across the borders. The preseason schedule hasn't been made clear and the practice games are still in uncertainty mode. Though, it is presumed that the games will be held 15-20 days before the beginning of the regular season. 

The 10 Matchups You Shouldn’t Miss

Even though the American Football craze will have you hooked up for all the games, here are the season's best battles you should make time for. 

  1. Houston Texas vs. Kansas City Chiefs – This game is the bang of the beginning. Scheduled in the Week 1 of NFL 2020 season, defending Champions Chiefs will have to prove that they are as strong as the previous season. 

  2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans – You can work overtime in week 2 if you wish, but week 3 is back again with this battle, which needs no introduction. You don't need a reason to see TWO GOATS take over. 

  3. Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens – Week 3 is packed with full football action. With Kansas already heading the betting game in the sports industry, Ravens are their closest rivals on these platforms. It will be interesting to see which one satisfies their fans and gives hopes to their supporters of claiming the championship title this time.

  4. Green Bay Packers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Week 6 will witness the best clash of two players who have held and created history. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady have been in the game for long but have not taken over each other often. These two will make the game unfold in true spirits. 

  5. Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers – In the previous season, Green Bay Packers were badly defeated by the 49ers.

  8. Dallas Cowboys vs. Baltimore Ravens – This match will be played in week 13, keeping the excitement brewing and going on. The Dallas Cowboys are popular as America's team, and it will be interesting to see if they turn out as said.
