The 2020 NFL schedule is officially set.

On Thursday night, the league announced the schedule for all 32 teams in the NFL. Given the current state of the sports world due to the coronavirus pandemic, it's possible the schedule could change significantly before the start of the year.

That said, the NFL is currently planning to host the season as scheduled until further action is required.

With their offseason acquisitions of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be one of the must-watch teams of the coming season. Led by head coach Bruce Arians, the Buccaneers offense will include the two former Patriots stars, as well as the superstar wide receiving tandem of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, and tight end O.J. Howard, making up one of the most star-studded groups in the NFL.

Brady will be put to the test in his first year in Tampa Bay, with matchups against some of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, including Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, and Patrick Mahomes.
