Steelers Expected to Have NFL’s Second-Easiest Schedule in 2020

Published

The Steelers will have the second-easiest schedule in the NFL in 2020, according to CBS Sports.

Based on the final standings from the last year, Pittsburgh will have the second-weakest strength of schedule in the league at .457.

Unfortunately for the Steelers, they are not alone in having a soft schedule next season, as the entire AFC North has a pretty painless slate. The Baltimore Ravens have the league’s easiest schedule by a wide margin at .437. The Browns have the fourth-easiest, the Bengals the sixth.

Part of the reason for the favorable outlook is that the AFC North draws the NFC East as its cross-conference division series. The NFC East went a combined 24-40 in 2019. The Philadephia Eagles won the division at 9-7, while the New York Giants and Washington Redskins were two of the NFL’s worst teams at 4-12 and 3-13, respectively.

Refreshingly, the New England Patriots have the NFL’s most challenging strength of schedule in at .537, drawing both teams that appeared in Super Bowl LIV – the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

While the schedule as a whole is light, it will be a tough start to the 2020 campaign for the Steelers, beginning with three-straight road games against divisional opponents.
