Jumping ahead two steps and looking at the Tennessee Titans 2020 schedule for a second.
Sure, the Tennessee Titans still have a lot to figure out in free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft. However, as it stands now they should be optimistic about their chances in 2020.
We know this thanks in large part to Mike Clay who puts in a lot of effort ranking position groups, projecting stat totals, simulating games, etc.
Earlier today he posted this tweet on the 2020 projected season and what the Titans had to look forward to:
The Titans end up with the 8th easiest schedule and the 4th easiest schedule in the AFC. Keep in mind, this isn’t a projection on which teams will win the most games, it is just ranking which teams will play the least talented opponents in 2020.

As one of only three 2019 playoff teams from the AFC in the top-10 here, you can assume that the combination of Tennessee’s talent and an easy schedule should make for a pretty fun season in 2020.
While it is way to early to start making plans for January, this is the first time in a long time that it feels like all the Titans have to do during the offseason is play it smart and not force any moves. If they do that, then everything else is lining up for them to make the playoffs again in 2020 and (I hate to even say it but) win more than 9 games.
The cherry on top of all of this though is that while Tennessee gets an easy schedule, the Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans both have schedules in the bottom half of this projection. The more trouble that those teams have making it to the playoffs, the better it is for the Titans who probably would rather a team like the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots or Pittsburgh Steelers.
Again, this is not the offseason to make any crazy changes. Instead, everything is playing out for you to get back to the playoffs in good shape if you just make intelligent moves and don’t disrupt continuity too much. In J-Rob we trust.
