The NFL preseason schedule for the 2015 season starts this weekend with the Hall of Fame game in Canton Ohio as the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers face off at Fawcett Stadium and this comes ahead of all 32 teams getting in action next week and TV coverage for the HOF game is on NBC and starts at 8 pm ET with Adrian Peterson and Ben Roethlisberger.
The first real week of the preseason starts on Thursday, August 13 with a full slate of games, including the Saints taking on the Ravens and the Packers playing the Patriots in Foxboro. The New York Jets are playing the Lions at Ford Field at 7:30 pm ET, while the Miami Dolphins and the Chicago Bears are playing at Soldier Field starting at 8 pm ET.
The Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Browns will be playing in Ohio at 8 pm, while the Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Chargers will match up out west in California for the late game. The Week 1 preseason schedule continues with the matchups on Friday, August 14 and the Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons will be playing at 7 pm, along with the Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills.
The Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Jacksonville Jaguars, while the New York Giants play the Bengals in Cincinnati at 7:30 pm ET. The late games on Friday have the St. Louis Rams and Oakland Raiders at O.co Coliseum, while the Broncos and Seahawks are playing at CenturyLink Field at 10 pm ET. The Saturday schedule has the San Francisco 49ers and the Houston Texans playing on Saturday, while the Buccaneers and Vikings are set to play in Minnesota.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals are playing at the University of Phoenix Stadium at 9 pm ET for the late game. Sunday has one game for the preseason schedule with the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles playing at 1 pm ET and that matchup will be at Lincoln Financial Field. The best matchup of the preseason has the Seahawks and Broncos playing and that should be a fun game purely for the Super Bowl rematch.
Russell Wilson just got his contract extension and there is a chance he could play a little bit in this game along with Peyton Manning. The second week of the preseason schedule has the games spread out, with two coming on Thursday night with the Lions playing the Redskins and the Bills playing the Browns. The second game is on ESPN on Thursday and the Friday matchups have the Falcons and the Jets, while the Seahawks are playing the Chiefs.
