NFL Preseason schedule 2016: Game times, TV channel, online streaming, how to watch Week 2, Thursday, August 18

New, comments

Information on Week 2 Thursday's NFL preseason games, including the game times, TV schedule and live stream options. 

Week 2 of the 2016 preseason is about to get underway. The San Francisco 49ers don’t play until Saturday, when they are on the road facing the Denver Broncos. In the meantime, the second week of preseason action kicks off on Thursday. There are six games Thursday evening, followed by three on Friday, and seven on Saturday. There is no Sunday football this week.

The Vikings-Seahawks game will be the NFL Network game tonight. Both teams are strong playoff contenders, with talented, young quarterbacks. Since this is the second week, we should see a little bit more of Teddy Bridgewater and Russell Wilson. The Raiders-Packers matchup jumps out at me as well. The Packers are favorites in the NFC North, and the Raiders are this year’s popular pick among the media. The Raiders have slowly built an intriguing team, and they added a lot of talent this offseason. Whether it all comes together for a playoff run remains to be seen.

Here is the info on the games for Thursday night:
