NFL - 2020 AFC Opponent Analysis

The schedule for the upcoming NFL season will be released in April, but every team knows their opponents they will play at home and away in 2020.

Each AFC team will play their division foes twice each (home and away), while also taking on four teams from another division in the conference (two home and two away), and facing two more AFC squads from the remaining two divisions (one home and one away).

Each AFC division is paired up with an NFC division for interconference play (four games apiece, two home and two road). In 2020, the AFC East will face the NFC West, the AFC North squares off with the NFC East, the AFC South plays the NFC North, and the AFC West takes on the NFC South.

Highlighted in bold are the playoff teams from 2019 that each club plays this season. Every squad faces from four to six teams that qualified for the postseason last season, with New England and Houston (6) seeing the most playoff teams, while Cleveland, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles all take only four playoff teams.
