Full NFL team schedules have officially been released. Here are my game-by-game win and loss predictions for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2020.

The Steelers schedule has now been released for the 2020 NFL season, and there appears to be several difficult games in their future. While Pittsburgh has plenty of games they should be favored in, it will be interesting to see how the season plays out.

After examining each of these future contests, I took a stab at predicting the results of each game to come up with Pittsburgh’s final record in the 2020 season. Here are my early game-by-game predictions for the Steelers this year:

Week 1 @ New York Giants: Win (1-0)

Playing an uncommon opponent on the road is always a struggle for the Steelers, but they should be able to hold their own against the Giants. While Daniel Jones could be improved in 2020, Pittsburgh typically fares pretty well against inexperienced quarterbacks, and New York’s defense isn’t good enough to keep Ben Roethlisberger and company in check. I have the Steelers earning the road victory.

Week 2 vs. Denver Broncos: Win (2-0)

If the Steelers had to travel out west to Mile High Stadium for this matchup, I may have gone with Denver here, but Pittsburgh has a few advantages here. Though the Broncos loaded up on talented skills players in the draft this year, it could take them a while to mesh with young quarterback Drew Locke. I think the Steelers own the advantage at home, and I have them coming away with the win.
