The second week of the NFL preseason continues unabated with two heavyweight clashes. First up, the New York Giants travel to take on the Cleveland Browns. In the later game, the San Francisco 49ers make the trip to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers.

The Giants and Browns will meet with contrasting preseason records coming into the game. The New York Giants lost their first game of the preseason to their town rivals, the New York Jets, 12-7. The Cleveland Browns had no such problems and dispatched the Jacksonville Jaguars 23-13 in their first preseason game.

The situation mirrors itself in the other game as well. The San Francisco 49ers come to this preseason game on the back of a narrow 19-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. They will be looking to set that record straight against the Los Angeles Chargers, who come into the game in buoyant mood after defeating their city rivals, the Los Angeles Rams, 13-6 in their first preseason outing.
