The New England Patriots once again have the maximum allotment of five prime-time games in 2020. How will they fare in them — and which ones are best?
Although this is a different-looking Patriots team from years past, New England still has the maximum five prime-time game slots allotted to them in 2020. Their opponents will be the Seahawks, Jets, Ravens, Rams, and Bills.
Although that may come as a surprise to many, New England also has three more games in the 4:25 PM EST window — which is not quite prime-time, but just a step below.
All of America will be tuned in to watch New England, who comes into the season with the most difficult strength of schedule in the NFL to see if they can continue to win without Tom Brady.
Last year, New England went 3-2 in their five prime-time games — although they did start off 3-0. If you count the Week 16 matchup versus Buffalo as a prime-time game (because no one else was playing at that time), then New England went 4-2 in their prime-time games last year.
How will they fare in 2020? And which are the prime-time games we should most look forward to?
