How to Watch NFL Preseason Week 2 Games Without Cable




, ,

The second week of the NFL preseason will expand across four days with 16 games, beginning on Thursday and ending on Monday. With the first round of roster cuts taking place on Tuesday, players looking to make the team will have another chance this week. The 85 remaining players on each team will be looking to show the world what they’ve got on the gridiron.

Tuesday has not been a quiet day when it comes to roster cuts as there have been some big names to land on the waiver wire. Former Heisman-winning QB turned Jaguars TE Tim Tebow had a poor showing in his preseason debut which led to his release. Other big names include Chiefs WR Antonio Callaway and Giants RB Alfred Morris. 

Starters are expected to play more in the second week than in week 1 because this week’s games are treated more like a dress rehearsal for the regular season. As a tactical bonus, the Atlanta Falcons announced they’re the first and the only team in the NFL to have a 100% vaccination rate.

Fans will be back in attendance at NFL stadiums across the league; however, cord cutters can find out how to watch every single week 2 NFL preseason game below.
