It’s been a tumultuous few days, but until further notice the NFL looks to be planning for a full season. We’ve known about each team’s opponents since the end of the regular season and the order of the games for a couple months now. In this article, I’m going to use our PFF Elo rating system to examine teams with the most difficult and least difficult schedules during the 2020 NFL campaign, along with the market implications of their schedules.
[Editor’s Note: PFF’s ELO rating system is powered by AWS machine learning capabilities.]

After opening on the road in Baltimore, the Browns get Cincinnati and Washington to finish out September.
