The Preseason Week 3 continues on Saturday with six more games on the schedule. Once again, the slate includes nationally televised games, this time with the Kansas City Chiefs at Chicago Bears on NFL Network and the Tennessee Titans at Oakland Raiders on CBS. This week of games are the most entertaining of the preseason schedule, with teams typically using their starters for the entire first half, and possibly into the third quarter.
These “dress rehearsal” games give the team a chance to game plan and prepare like it is a regular season week, shake off any remaining rust from the starters, and treat the game like it is a game that counts. Next week, as the calendar turns to the final week of the preseason, we will see the other end of the roster spend the majority time on the field, both as a way to possibly see something to help with the last minute decisions leading into the final round of roster cuts, or as a way to protect starters from injury just before the start of the season.
On to the full Saturday schedule:
