Assessing the Tennessee Titans 2020 schedule
The 2020 NFL preseason and regular-season schedules are now set and teams can start seriously preparing for the fall.
Due to the coronavirus suspending sports everywhere, the NFL has done a good job marketing the upcoming season and keeping the offseason schedule rather normal.
Aside from having the draft virtually, the NFL has been sticking to the 'business as usual' mantra despite COVID-19.
Here is a quick glance at the Titans' schedule for the fall.
I will save my predictions for another article when the season is closer to starting, but I will say there are several positives to this schedule for Mike Vrabel's squad.
For one, the Titans will play three primetime games including the season opener in Denver. Not only will that be a fantastic matchup in itself, it will also pit Jurrell Casey against his former team.
A week seven bye is also incredibly advantageous for Tennessee as it falls nearly perfectly in the middle. The best weeks to be on bye are week seven, eight, or nine. The Titans really lucked out here.
The matchup with the AFC North is bound to be exciting as the Titans will head back to Baltimore where they stunned the Ravens in the 2019 playoffs and they will get to see first overall pick, Joe Burrow, on November 1st in Cincinnati.
It's also good news the Titans will not have to play the Jaguars on a Thursday night like they have the last several but once again, the team will have to travel to Houston on the last weekend of the season to face DeShaun Watson and the Texans.
All in all, I would say this schedule is kind to the Titans and I can definitely see them finishing with a winning record.
