The 2017 NFL preseason is in full swing with every team now having played at least one exhibition game. Week 2 begins Thursday night with three games, and it concludes with the first “Monday Night Football” game of the year.

The week features eight games that will be nationally televised, and fans can watch the other contests on local TV channels. Starters should get more playing time in Week 2, and that is reflected in the opening betting odds.

The Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins will kick off the upcoming schedule, and it could mark Jay Cutler’s debut with his new team. The quarterback didn’t play in Week 1 just days after becoming Ryan Tannehill’s replacement, but it’s sounding like he’ll be good to go against Baltimore. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase told reporters that the decision would be put in Cutler’s hands, and the signal caller has indicated that he wants to take the field Thursday night.

The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks will play in the only game scheduled for Friday night, and it will be seen by a national audience. Seattle closed out Week 1 with a matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, who made their L.A. Debut. The Seahawks had the biggest margin of victory of any team, defeating the Chargers by 31 points.

The New York Giants visit the Cleveland Browns on Monday night to close out the week. Much of the attention will be on rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer, who was impressive in his NFL debut with a 114.1 passer rating. No.1 overall draft pick Myles Garrett recorded a tackle for a loss in his first game as a pro.

Most of the Week 2 action is set for Saturday. Nine games are on the scheduled, though the Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans are the only contest that will be played in the afternoon. It’s one of three Saturday nationally televised games, along with Indianapolis vs. Dallas and Denver vs. San Francisco.
