There’s only one more week of exhibition contests until NFL teams begin playing meaningful games. Week 4 of the 2016 preseason starts and ends on Thursday with all 32 teams on the schedule.
Plenty of starters won’t see the field at all as they prepare for the regular season, which begins exactly one week from Thursday. The Denver Broncos visit the Arizona Cardinals and the Carolina Panthers host the Pittsburgh Steelers seven days before a rematch of Super Bowl 50 kicks off the 2016 season.
Six teams enter the final week of the preseason with unbeaten records. The Baltimore Ravens are 3-0, most recently beating the Detroit Lions by 21 points. They’ll visit the New Orleans Saints, who are one of four teams that have yet to win a game in 2016.
Either the Chicago Bears or Cleveland Browns are guaranteed to finish the preseason with no wins, as both teams head into their Week 4 matchup with a 0-3 record. After the Bears were shut out in the preseason opener, they scored just seven points in Week 3. The Browns haven’t scored more than 13 points in any preseason game.
Week 4 will be Tom Brady’s last chance to play before he serves his four-game suspension, though Jimmy Garoppolo might see a majority of the snaps for the New England Patriots. Dak Prescott enters the Dallas Cowboys' game against the Houston Texans as the team’s starter after Tony Romo suffered a back injury.
