NFL Preseason Week 2: Saturday Night Open Thread

New, comments

The week in NFL preseason continues with eight games tonight and this afternoon. Brandon Marshall is ready for some more football.

Preseason week two continues with tonight's action - eight games, and that's eight games closer to the all-important week three, and eight games closer to real NFL football. Let's see what's on tap for tonight.

Green Bay Packers at St. Louis Rams
Time: 4:00 PM ET
Reason to Watch:
I'm pretty sure Kyle Long will be watching his brother Chris Long in St. Louis. But aside from that, who'd want to watch the Packers? I mean, outside of our scouting purposes. I can't see one reason to watch this team. Nope. Not one. Certainly not Aaron Rodgers or Clay Matthews or Julius Peppers. Nope.

Okay, fine, scouting purposes and because Aaron Rodgers is pretty good at football.

New York Giants at Indianapolis Colts
Time: 7:00 PM ET
Reason to Watch:
Eli Manning takes on the team his brother used to play for!

New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals
Time: 7:00 PM ET
Reason to Watch:
Andy Dalton, the NFL's latest 100-million-dollar-man, versus Geno Smith, perhaps?

Baltimore Ravens at Dallas Cowboys
Time: 7:00 PM ET
Reason to Watch:
Watch the game to watch the game on Jerry Jones' big screen?

Miami Dolphins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Time: 7:30 PM ET
Reason to Watch:
How does Lovie Smith's defense match up against the Miami Dolphins' offense?

Buffalo Bills at Pittsburgh Steelers
Time: 7:30 PM ET
Reason to Watch:
One of Santonio Holmes' former teams going up against a team with a pretty good young receiver in Sammy Watkins.

Atlanta Falcons at Houston Texans
Time: 8:00 PM ET
Reason to Watch:
Which crash and burn team looks like it'll continue to crash and burn?

Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings
Time: 8:30 PM ET
Reason to Watch:
More division scouting, such as the second crack at watching Teddy Bridgewater.

Which game are you watching tonight?
