As the 2012 NFL preseason enters the crucial third week, NFL Media remains the go-to destination for the most comprehensive preseason coverage, including the first meeting in the NFL between the top two draft picks this year, quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III.

 

On Friday, August 24 at 7:30 PM ET on NFL Network, NFL Preseason Live provides live look-ins of Week 3 preseason games. Host Fran Charles and analysts Kurt Warner and Michael Lombardi take viewers around The League in NFL RedZone-style, delivering live game action and highlights including rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins hosting the Atlanta Falcons, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots traveling to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Philadelphia Eagles at the Cleveland Browns in a preview of a Week 1 matchup.

 

NFL Network’s live preseason broadcast schedule continues on Saturday, August 25 at 4:00 PM ET when the number one overall pick in this year’s draft Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts face the number two overall pick Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.

 

Following Colts-Redskins, NFL Preseason Live airs at 7:30 PM ET providing analysis and coverage of the day’s remaining games, which include Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys hosting Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams, and Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers traveling to face defensive end Mario Williams and the Buffalo Bills.

 

NFL Network is the only place to catch all 65 games of the 2012 NFL preseason schedule.
