The 2019 NFL preseason schedule has been released with approximate dates, and we have all the contests below for each of the 32 teams.
We finally the NFL schedule release! Well, sort of.
On Tuesday afternoon, the league announced its preseason slate for each of the 32 teams, albeit with dates being within a range and times unknown.
The Hall of Fame Game has been set with the Denver Broncos technically visiting the Atlanta Falcons on Aug. 1 in Canton, Ohio. The two teams will be the only squads playing five preseason games, although don’t expect too many starters to be making appearances that weekend.
Of all the games on the slate, there are some which jump off the page. The Arizona Cardinals are playing their first game of the summer at home against the Los Angeles Chargers. In theory, we might be seeing Kyler Murray in an NFL uniform for the first time. In that same vein, could Le’Veon Bell be making his debut for the New York Jets against the New York Giants in the Snoopy Bowl? Sure seems that way.
The first week of the NFL preseason will be played Aug. 8-12. The second week checks in between Aug. 15-19, and the third being on Aug. 22-25. The fourth week has all of the affairs within close proximity, making sure each team has roughly the same amount of rest prior to the regular season. All of the preseason finales will take place on Aug. 29 and 30.
The first game of the actual season will take place on Sept. 5, when the Green Bay Packers visit the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football.
