The NFL has officially released the 2020 schedule, and the Colts have an opportunity to take advantage in 2020. Here’s a breakdown of their schedule and projected record.
The NFL has officially released the 2020 NFL schedule for every team in the league. This, of course, includes the Indianapolis Colts. They have one of the easiest starts in the league, as they face only one 2019 playoff team in their first eight weeks: the Minnesota Vikings. Following that, however, six out of the next seven weeks will be versus playoff teams, including matchups against the Baltimore Ravens and the Green Bay Packers.
The Colts have only one primetime game in 2020, during their Week 10 matchup against the Titans on Thursday Night. With games set against both the Ravens and the Packers, it was thought among most Colts fans that they’d get at least one more primetime game, especially considered the projected success as a whole going into the 2020 season.
Their schedule as a whole ranks 16th in the NFL in terms of strength (.502). It’ll be crucial that this team gets off to a hot start before the real tests begin later in the season. With the division starting to falter at the top, the 2020 season is a perfect time for the Colts to capitalize on their own improvements and finally win the division for the first time since 2014.
The opportunity is there for Indy to return to the playoffs with a strong season, and they’ve made the upgrades to get there. With that said, let’s break down every game of the Colts’ 2020 schedule and what their record will be. Is this a playoff team? Let’s find out.
