NFL football is finally upon us. After the Hall of Fame game saw the Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Las Vegas Raiders, we have more preseason football heading our way.
Pre-season is a time for rookies as well as third- and fourth-string players to get a chance to strut their stuff and impress the coaching staff. A couple of standout displays could help them seal a spot on the final 53-man roster come Week 1.
However, a few first-choice players will be in action as well, and the stadiums are expected to attract plenty of crowds for these games.
Here is a complete rundown of how and where to watch the NFL's preseason games on Thursday, August 11, and Friday, August 12.

What to watch for in the Thursday and Friday games?
The Giants and the Patriots will kick us off in preseason. With New York not picking up Daniel Jones' fifth-year option, it remains to be seen if the Giants' coaching staff will want to see Jones in preseason action.
Then we have the Titans taking on the Ravens. It will be interesting to see if Tennessee gives Malik Willis any gametime in preseason as Ryan Tannehill will surely not be seeing the field.
Ari Meirov of Pro Football Focus put out a tweet today stating that Deshaun Watson is likely to see gametime in the Browns' first game of the preseason. With an impending suspension hanging over his head, Cleveland may want to get Watson used to their offense by playing him in preseason games.
Another interesting game to watch will be between the Packers and the 49ers. Jordan Love could be up against Trey Lance for the first couple of series and that will no doubt grab the attention of football fans.
