With the NFL schedule set, six games seem like obvious wins/losses for the Steelers entering a crucial year after a disappointing 2019

Ever since the release of the 2020 NFL schedule, speculation has been flying about what the Steelers record will be. The current Vegas odds are floating between 9-10 wins, meaning Vegas predicts the Steelers to be an above-average team. While predictions these early are hard to make, it at least gives the NFL fanbase something to speculate on now that the draft is over, and the teams are prepping for training camp.

After a pair of frustrating and inconsistent seasons, the Steelers are primed to be competitors again this year with a returning Ben Roethlisberger and a dominant defense still together. It won’t be a cakewalk though, as the defending NFC North Champion Ravens added even more weapons to their team while the Browns are now seemingly back to back offseason champions. Even the last-place Bengals seemingly got their QB of the future in Joe Burrow, and they should at the minimum improve upon their record from last year.

Looking at the schedule, six games stick out, specifically three games that the Steelers will win and three they will lose. While these are still just predictions, based on the past few seasons, these seem like logical predictions. As well, there will be in-game predictions on which players do what. While these predictions are still very early, these six games seem easy to predict on paper.
