Check out our live odds and analysis below for every big game on the betting board.
Week 2 of the preseason slate features six games televised live on the network that covers the NFL, plus an additional two games carried on ESPN. The all sports channel will open the week with a battle of Florida between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars. New head coach Doug Marrone will look to get more out of the Jags than Gus Bradley did and beating their in-state rival at home would be a good start.
The week concludes with our first installment of Monday Night Football when the Browns host the New York Giants. When teams stink the previous year, they don’t grab much attention from the networks, and that’s where the Brownies are. Their 1-15 season a year ago didn’t get Cleveland any primetime matchups during the regular season, so for you Browns fans, this is it.
NFL Network has the rabid football fan covered during the week. The broadcast schedule starts with a matchup of NFC hopefuls when the Vikings visit Seattle on Friday. Stay glued to your favorite seat on Saturday with triple-header action coming at you. Quarterbacks looking for a healthy start get a look when Cam Newton and his surgically repaired shoulder take on Marcus Mariota and his mended leg. Indy visits Dallas in the middle game of the trifecta with Denver visiting the rebuilding Santa Clara 49ers in the nightcap.
NFL Thursday, August 17
Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins, Hard Rock Stadium, 7 p.m. ET
Preview:Now that Jay Cutler has been around for over a week, he figures to get his first action as a member of the Miami Dolphins. That's the biggest storyline surrounding this Week 2 game against the Baltimore Ravens, as the teams move one step closer towards kicking off the games that count in September. Continue...
Buffalo Bills at Philadelphia Eagles, Lincoln Financial Field, 7 p.m. ET
Preview: Trades don't happen often in the NFL aside from around draft time, but the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles made a swap just before the start of the preseason. It'll be interesting to see if this is the first taste Jordan Matthews gets of playing for the Bills against his old team on Thursday night. Continue...
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Jacksonville Jaguars, EverBank Field, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Preview: Virtually every year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers go around the Sunshine State and play against both the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins just to cut down on some travel costs. This year, they're heading up to Jacksonville for a Week 2 game against the Jags. Continue...
NFL Friday, August 18
Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks, CenturyLink Field, 10 p.m. ET (NFLN)
Opening Line: Seahawks -3, O/U 41.5
Preview: Pete Carroll can only be thrilled with the way his Seattle Seahawks played against the Chargers to wrap up Week 1 of the preseason. They've got a short week in front of them to repeat their process against the Minnesota Vikings. Even the most novice of NFL bettors knows that this will be a far different challenge against a team that is notorious for being one of the best in the preseason in the NFL. Continue...
NFL Saturday, August 19
Carolina Panthers at Tennessee Titans, Nissan Stadium, 3 p.m. ET (NFLN)
Preview: The Tennessee Titans couldn't possibly play a more drab game in Week 2 of the preseason than they did in Week 1. After a dud of a 7-3 loss to the Jets in Week 1, Marcus Mariota and the crew will be hoping for at least a little bit of offensive continuity when the Titans face off with the Carolina Panthers on Saturday afternoon. Continue...
Kansas City Chiefs at Cincinnati Bengals, Paul Brown Stadium, 7 p.m. ET
Preview: If the backups for the Cincinnati Bengals are going to play as well throughout the preseason as they did against the Bucs in Week 1, they're going to have a legitimate shot to run the table through their exhibitions. Their second test of the four in the preseason will come against the Kansas City Chiefs in their last home game before the duels start to count in September. Continue...
Indianapolis Colts at Dallas Cowboys, ATT Stadium, 7 p.m. ET (NFLN)
Opening Line: Cowboys -5.5, O/U 39.5
Preview: The Indianapolis Colts are the biggest underdogs in the NFL in Week 2 of the preseason. They're notorious for being rather pathetic this time of year, and they're clearly going to be up against it against a team that is playing in its third preseason game already of the campaign. Continue...
New York Jets at Detroit Lions, Ford Field, 7:30 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Lions -5, O/U 38
Preview: The New York Jets are in the win column. That's not something we figure to be writing too many times this season, so we might as well enjoy it while we've got it, even if it was just a horrid 7-3 preseason victory over Tennessee last week. At least Todd Bowles won't say that he went 0-20 this year with his Jets. And hey, you never know. The team might accidentally beat the Detroit Lions in Week 2 of the preseason, too! Continue...
Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins, FedEx Field, 7:30 p.m. ET
Preview: Jay Gruden can't be an overly happy man right now. His Washington Redskins were pummeled 23-3 last week in the preseason by the Ravens. Gruden's preseason record suggests that he isn't going to tolerate another shoddy performance from his team in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers. Continue...
New England Patriots at Houston Texans, NRG Stadium, 8 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Texans -1, O/U 40.5
Preview: It's not all that often that teams who played against each other in the postseason the previous season meet again in the preseason the next year. What makes the matchup between the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans all the more strange is the fact that they're going to play each other in a few weeks in the regular season as well. Continue...
Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders, Oakland Coliseum, 10 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Raiders -3, O/U 40
Preview: At least one team in Los Angeles looked the part of an NFL squad in Week 1 of the preseason. Surprisingly, it was the Los Angeles Rams who were the better team for sure in Tinseltown to kick off the new year, and perhaps that could be a new start for a team that is desperately trying to revive itself under new coach Sean McVay. The Rams' next task is going to be shutting down the Oakland Raiders, 20-10 losers to Arizona in their first preseason game last week. Continue...
Denver Broncos at San Francisco 49ers, Levi’s Stadium, 10 p.m. ET (NFLN)
Opening Line: 49ers -1, O/U 40
Preview: The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos were both winners in their first preseason contests, and it's hard to argue with anything that either team did in those wins. Week 2 of the preseason will surely be a different story for one of these two sides when they meet in Santa Clara for what could be an interesting clash. Continue...
Chicago Bears at Arizona Cardinals, University of Phoenix Stadium, 10 p.m. ET
Opening Line: Cardinals -3.5, O/U 41
Preview: The quarterback quandary for the Chicago Bears is already hitting a crescendo, and we're only a week into the preseason. By all accounts, Mitch Trubisky tremendously outplayed Mike Glennon in the Bears' first preseason game against Denver, and if he does so again in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals, John Fox is going to have to give some serious consideration to starting Trubisky in the "dress rehearsal" game in Week 3. Continue...
NFL Sunday, August 20
Atlanta Falcons at Pittsburgh Steelers, Heinz Field, 4 p.m. ET (NFLN)
Preview: The Pittsburgh Steelers aren't going to take any chances they don't have to in the preseason. Mike Tomlin knows that he has the team to beat in the AFC North this season, and we suspect a Week 2 showdown with the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday will see him sit the mass majority of his starters for the second straight game. Continue...
New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Chargers, StubHub Center, 8 p.m. ET (NFLN)
Preview: The StubHub Center genuinely seemed excited about welcoming the Los Angeles Chargers to Tinseltown. Unfortunately, after one tremendous drive, the rest of the game against Seattle in Week 1 of the preseason was a complete and utter dud. If the Chargers aren't careful, they could find themselves getting blown out by the New Orleans Saints in Week 2 as well. Continue...
NFL Monday, August 21
New York Giants at Cleveland Browns, FirstEnergy Stadium, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Opening Line: Browns -1.5, O/U 40
Preview: It took until December for the Cleveland Browns to win their first game under new coach Hue Jackson. That included going 0-4 in the preseason. For the Browns, wins are wins whenever you can get them, and they're actually favored to snare a second straight triumph, albeit in a meaningless preseason game against the New York Giants. Continue...
