NFL preseason schedule Week 2: What games are on today? TV channels, times, scores

Sporting News

The much-anticipated wait for football finally ended, and the preseason Week 1 overreactions are in full bloom. It's time to put those first impressions to the test as teams prepare for Week 2.

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones set the world on fire with his first NFL snaps, going a perfect 5-for-5 for 67 yards and a touchdown as he tries to out-duel Eli Manning for the starting job. He'll have a chance to build on his debut as the Giants travel to Chicago in Week 2.

Arizona's Kyler Murray and Washington's Dwayne Haskins were among other rookie quarterbacks making their NFL debuts in Week 1 of the preseason, and it was Murray who had far greater success in coach Kliff Kingsbury's new offense. Murray had the worse outing in Week 2, while Haskins' numbers were just so-so.

Preseason football also allows for interesting storylines to develop, like Cleveland's Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi — a walk-on tryout acquisition — returning a punt for a touchdown or the Carolina Panthers icing the Bears' kickers in an effort to help solve their position battle.

Week 2's most compelling matchup pits New England and Bill Belichick against his former player-turned-coach Mike Vrabel and Tennessee. "Sunday Night Football" features San Francisco GM John Lynch returning to Denver, where he played four Hall of Fame-caliber seasons as a safety.

Below you'll find a full schedule for all the games in Week 2 of the NFL preseason, plus live scores, streaming and TV information.

How to watch, live stream NFL preseason games

There are a few ways to watch the NFL preseason, some of which can be a little different than the regular season. Apart from tuning the television to a respective local broadcast, each week will also have a few nationally televised games on NBC, Fox, CBS, ESPN and NFL Network. Week 1's national games are limited to NFL Network, which either requires a cable subscription, or can be streamed live on fuboTV, which offers a free seven-day trial.

NFL Game Pass — available for $99.99 — is the only other way to watch preseason games this week. The service provides live access to every preseason game, as well as replays of every game in a condensed 45-minute version.

This service doesn't continue live coverage during the regular season, but full game replays are available as soon as every game ends. NFL Game Pass also includes access to the NFL Films archives and live radio broadcasts of each game. It can be streamed on pretty much any mobile device, computer or Smart TV.
