With less than two months until the start of the NFL pre-season, the NFL announced the pre-season primetime schedule. This morning, on Tuesday, June 7, the NFL released the primtime schedule for the pre-season games, as well as the rest of the pre-season schedule. This will be just the second pre-season where teams will be playing three games, instead of the traditional four, as the NFL shortened the pre-season last year going forward.

National TV pre-season games:

The pre-season will begin on August 4, when the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Las Vegas Raiders in Canton for the Hall-of-Fame game. Five other preseason games will be broadcast on national television later this summer, featuring the Bears, Seahawks, Ravens, Cardinals, Falcons, Jets, 49ers, Texans, Lions and Steelers.

The pre-season will end on August 28, nearly three and a half weeks after the first game.

Each week during the preseason, several games will be carried on national television, with NBC, ESPN, Fox, CBS and Amazon Prime each carrying national broadcasts. Local networks like CBS and Fox will have the rest of the games televised. Fans can also watch each pre-season game on NFL Pass.

Here is the schedule for the primtime pre-season games beginning with the Jagaurs and Raiders.
