Ha! I just spent a bunch of time putting my thread together.  Long enough that this wasn't here when I started.

What I like

  • The NFL seemingly planning to start on time
  • Match ups with the NFC East and the AFC South
  • Bye week in the middle of the season
  • Warmer weather teams having to play in PBS in December
  • Baltimore in the last week when they might be resting starters
  • 13 of 16 games at 1pm, I like consistency in the schedule

What I don't like
 
  • 2nd game FOUR days after the first game with a rookie quarterback
  • 4 of the first 6 on the road all against solid or better opponents
  • Only 2 national games, but possibility of flex games if we can surprise
 
The Unknowns
 
  • Can Burrow come out hot right out of the gate or should rookie adjustments still be expected?
  • How well will the rebuilt defense hold up?
  • Can our WR FINALLY stay healthy?
 
Off the Cuff Guess at how the season goes
 
  • 9/13/2020: San Diego Chargers - WIN
  • 9/17/2020: @ Cleveland Browns - loss
  • 9/27/2020: @ Philadelphia Eagles - loss
  • 10/4/2020: Jacksonville Jaguars - WIN
  • 10/11/2020: @ Baltimore Ravens - loss
  • 10/18/2020: @ Indianapolis Colts - loss
  • 10/25/2020: Cleveland Browns - WIN
  • 11/1/2020: Tennessee Titans - loss
  • 11/15/2020: @ Pittsburgh Steelers - loss
  • 11/22/2020: @ Washington Redskins - WIN
  • 11/29/2020: New York Giants - WIN
  • 12/6/2020: @ Miami Dolphins - WIN
  • 12/13/2020: Dallas Cowboys - loss
  • 12/21/2020: Pittsburgh Steelers - WIN
  • 12/27/2020: @ Houston Texans - WIN
  • 1/3/2021: Baltimore Ravens - loss
     
  • Record - 8-8
     
  • If the Ravens are resting their starters in week 17, that could turn into a win
  • Health is going to be a big factor for all teams, so everything is fluid.
  • Games I think we could surprise people are the 11/1 Titans game, the 10/18 Colts game, and the Cowboys game.  On the flip side, there is always the possibility of losing a game we should have won
  • It all hinges on Burrow really.  If the magic continues, we could be a playoff contender.  If he struggles or gets hurt, we lose double digit games yet again.

Sorry Duke.  I got tired of waiting for someone to start a good one,  so I put my craptastic magic on it.

My only gripe is that we play all three division opponents on the road the first time we face them.  Part of it is the Reds taking up weekend games, but we could have moved the Jax game to later in the season and had Baltimore or Pitt at home the first time around
