NFL Schedule Release 2020 – 5 Games You Won’t Want to Watch This Season

NFL Schedule Release 2020 5 Games That Will Be Total Eyesores

The NFL is probably the most hyped league in all of sports. Nowhere else do you get the amount of conversation and intrigue year-round that the NFL receives.

The actual season goes by in a flash, yet we’re still talking about it 365 days a year. Fantasy football and the NFL Draft make that possible, while the league also wisely issues its NFL schedule release at a time when nothing else is going on.

That’s more true this year than ever, but the buzz around games that literally won’t happen for at least five months is pretty absurd.

I love it, though. Of course, there are a ton of games from the 2020 NFL schedule release we’ll wish were never created. Some bad teams and some even worse matchups are subject to have us screaming to the skies.

There are surely some great NFL games to watch in 2020 , but I’ve got the other side of the spectrum for you with 5 games from the 2020 NFL schedule release that will be a total eyesore.

Chargers @ Bengals (September 13th)

NFL debuts either go awesome, or they go historically bad.

Joe Burrow looks like a superstar in the making, and he appears to have a nice band of weapons around him, but what if his first game doesn’t see him living up to the hype?

It’s very possible based on the pressure alone. Not only is Burrow supposed to be the franchise savior, but he was the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and his first game comes in front of an incredibly hopeful fan base.

Burrow will either flash superstar potential in this first game, or he’ll face-plant.

The matchup suggests the latter is pretty possible. Joey Bosa heads a stacked Chargers defense that ranked 5th against the pass and at least has the potential to terrorize the top pick with their pass rush.

The spread won’t be crazy here, but the actual product may not be what we want to see.

Dolphins @ Patriots (September 13th)

It’s unclear if Tua Tagovailoa will be ready to take over under center for Miami in week one, but either way, the Dolphins could be part of another blowout.

Miami actually upset the Patriots three times in the last three years, but when they’ve lost, it’s been pretty ugly. Their last three losses in this series — all on the road like this week one snoozer — have come by 18 points or far more.

Tom Brady is gone, but New England still has a nasty defense, elite coaching, and the makings of a strong running game. Whether it’s Ryan Fitzpatrick or Tua manning their offense, the Dolphins don’t have amazing prospects to start off 2020.

Jets @ Chiefs (November 1st)

The Jets are a team in danger of being a total laughing stock again in 2020. Can the Jets win Super Bowl 2021 if everything goes just right? I mean, sure, but judging by who they were last year, it’s pretty unlikely.

Adam Gase tends to drive teams into the ground, and his offense has been erratic at best thus far in New York. Running into the harrowing Chiefs on the road, Gang Green projects poorly in this tense November battle.

KC will undoubtedly be massive favorites here. That’ll give sports bettors little to work with, and a lopsided finish is all but certain.

Redskins @ 49ers (December 13th)

If you’re a 49ers fan, you’ll gladly tune into this one, as it could easily be a bloodbath.

Everyone else may want to look away.

These two sides actually played each other close in an unsightly 9-0 win for the Niners last year, but that actually only aids my argument. The Redskins were painfully overmatched back then, and the steadier Case Keenum was their quarterback at the time.

Honestly, had that game not been the second coming of the “Mud Bowl,” it may have been 55-0.

San Francisco could take a mild step back this year, but they’re still a way better team than the Redskins.

They’ll likely enter this game as double-digit favorites. You won’t find much better value here, and this game could be rather unsightly just from a sheer viewing perspective.

Jaguars @ Ravens (December 20th)

A running theme here is bad teams that struggle on offense going on the road to battle vastly superior teams. The math checks out, no?

I’d say the trend is spot on for this late December showdown in Baltimore, where Minshew Magic hopes to keep it rolling against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.

Jackson is the reigning NFL MVP and one of the toughest offensive weapons to stop, while Gardner Minshew II is — to this point, at least — more cult icon than legitimate NFL quarterback.

I hope I’m wrong about that, but Minshew had some rough outings in 2019 and may not deliver in 2020. And if he isn’t the guy, the team may be forced to turn to Mike Glennon or someone else.

None of this, on the road against the mighty Ravens, sounds good.

Baltimore will be huge betting favorites, and you’ll be more worried about them covering a gigantic point spread than considering Jacksonville as a serious threat.

Summary

These games honestly still have some redeeming qualities. That’s the beauty of the NFL. A dream matchup could be an ugly 6-3 snoozefest. A battle between two of the worst teams in the league can turn into a crazy 37-34 shootout.

You never know what you’re going to get, but when looking ahead to the 2020 NFL season, the aforementioned games won’t be high on my must-watch list.

I probably won’t spend all of my days trying to figure out how to bet on them, either. If you want to do that, though, be sure to first hit up the top football sportsbooks.
