Thursday, August 16th

The opening game of Week 2 sees a rematch of Super Bowl 52, with the Eagles and Patriots going head to head in Foxboro. Another great match-up on Thursday sees the Steelers head to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. Both these teams won big in Week 1.Finally, on Thursday we have the Jets on the road at the Reskins, with Washington seeing their preseason get off to a horrific start with the loss of rookie RB Derrius Guice for the year with a knee injury.

Friday, August 17th

The Chiefs lost their opener and will hit the road to face a Falcons team that was blanked by the Jets in week 1. The New York Giants look to have a winner on their hand with rookie RB Saquon Barkley, pick No. 2 in the 2018 NFL Draft, who will get the chance to shine again with a visit to the Detroit Lions. The Cleveland Browns looked to be for real in their opener, as it looks as though they have a pair of capable QB’s on board. They will try to keep the good times rolling when the Buffalo Bills come to town.The Dolphins lost their preseason opener and will have another tough one this week when they visit the Carolina Panthers. The Arizona Cardinals were one of the surprise winners in Week 1 of the preseason, but things should get tougher this week with a trip to New Orleans to face the Saints.

Saturday, August 18th

A really good match-up on Saturday, with the Jaguars and Vikings going head to head in Minnesota. The Vikings looked great in Week 1, racking up 42 points. The Raiders will be on the road in LA to face a Rams team that was not particularly convincing in their opener. The Cowboys will have their preseason home opener against the Bengals and will be looking to bounce back from a loss in their opening game. The Buccaneers will be happy with their win to start the preseason, while the Titans will look to bounce back from a real beating in Green Bay.The Bucs will face the Titans in the 2018 NFL Preseason Week 2.Another good match-up on tap, with the 49ers and Texans going head to head. These two are considered to be dark horses coming into the regular season. The Denver Broncos were pounded by the Vikings in their opener, and it’s fair to suggest that their QB situation looks grim. Next up for the Broncos are the Chicago Bears. A poor start to the preseason for the Chargers and Seahawks, although both teams will have a shot at feeling a little better about things when they meet on Saturday night.

Monday, August 20th

The Monday night game will give us a chance to see Andrew Luck back in action for the Colts. He looked good in his first game back from injury and should see some playing time against the Ravens. Baltimore has to feel good about their performance in Week 1 of the preseason, where they scored 33 points.
