On Saturday, August 11, NFL Network features a doubleheader of live games, beginning at 7:00 PM ET with the 2011 Offensive Rookie of the Year Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers hosting the defending AFC South champion Houston Texans. At 10:00 PM ET, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck returns to Seattle when the Tennessee Titans open their preseason schedule on the road against the Seahawks.

 

NFL Network’s live Week 1 preseason schedule concludes with No. 1 overall pick of the Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck making his NFL debut at home against the St. Louis Rams Sunday, August 12 at 1:30 PM ET.

 

NFL Network remains the only place to catch all 65 games of the 2012 NFL preseason schedule, beginning Thursday at 12 Midnight ET when Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos travel to Chicago to face quarterback Jay Cutler and the Bears, followed by the Atlanta Falcons hosting the Baltimore Ravens at 3:00 AM ET.

 

NFL.com’s NFL Preseason Live returns to offer fans live and on-demand access to preseason games online and in HD. Full DVR controls allow fans to pause, rewind and replay both live and archived game action. Additional viewing options include picture-in-picture and a quad view mode which provides fans the ability to watch four games on the same screen.
