The NFL Preseason finally begins on Thursday, four days after the cancellation of the Hall of Fame Game. Tonight’s schedule does not feature the Miami Dolphins, who will play at the New York Giants on Friday, which allows us today to just enjoy some football for the first time since February.
Below, you will find everything you need to watch the games, including who is on the schedule and how to stream the games online. Each game will be broadcast within their respective markets, so if you live near one of these teams’ home city, you may get the game on live TV. There is also an NFL Network game scheduled for tonight featuring the New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots.
NFL GamePass will allow you to stream any of the preseason games. The package for the entire season will include on-demand replays of the regular season games, and it does have an associated cost. However, you can sign up for a free trial right now to be able to see this week’s preseason games.
