Here Is The NFL’s Full Primetime Schedule For The 2020 Season

The NFL made significant news again on Thursday, May 7 with the release of the full schedule for the 2020 season. In some respects, the grand reveal is merely procedural, especially with pre-existing knowledge of which teams will face off over the course of the campaign. Still, it is a day that many NFL fans circle for planning purposes and, in addition to travel plans and, this year, other considerations with the world around us, it is also useful to spotlight the face-offs that will be broadcast in national television windows in primetime.

The first scheduled game of the 2020 season is a rematch of the AFC Playoffs, with Patrick Mahomes and the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs kicking off the campaign at home with a match-up against Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans. From there, there is a typical Sunday night matchup and, to cap Week 1, ESPN will be airing their now-traditional Monday night doubleheader.

When the holidays arrive, the NFL is scheduled to dominate the sports world with a trio of games on Thanksgiving. In addition, the league schedule a very intriguing match-up on a Friday, with the Vikings and Saints set to square off on Christmas Day and, potentially, going head-to-head with the NBA. At the end of the campaign, Week 17 once again has no scheduled games in primetime, simply to avoid the funny business that could occur as teams jockey for playoff positioning.
