Meaningful NFL games won’t be played for another few weeks, but there is plenty of football on the schedule over the next seven days. All 32 teams are set to play in Week 2 of the 2015 preseason with games set to air between Thursday and Monday.
Week 2 begins with two games on Thursday, one of which will be broadcast nationally. The Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins will kick off the schedule after both teams won their exhibition openers. The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns will face off on Thursday, as well, in a contest that will air on national television.
Two more games will be played on Friday. After scoring 31 points in their preseason opener, the Atlanta Falcons will visit the New York Jets, who are looking to get into the end zone for the first time in 2015. The Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs will meet in a contest set to be broadcast on the NFL Network.
Half of the Week 2 games are scheduled to be played on Saturday, and all of them will start at night. The Philadelphia Eagles had the biggest margin of victory in Week 1 of the preseason, and they’ll host the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday. The top teams in the AFC will be in action, as the Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots and Denver Broncos are all on the schedule. The San Diego Chargers and the Arizona Cardinals will conclude Saturday’s games with a 10 p.m. ET start time.
Six teams will play on Sunday, including one afternoon game. The first Monday Night Football game of 2015 will conclude the Week 2 schedule when the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
