NFL Preseason Thursday Night (Aug. 16) Preview: Games, Time Start, Channel

Week 2 of the NFL preseason will be underway on Thursday, and here is what you need to know.

NFL Preseason Week 2 Preview

There are three games scheduled for Thursday night.

Philadelphia Eagles (0-1) at New England Patriots (1-0): 7:30 p.m. EST

Players to watch: Wide receiver Eric Deckera ninth-year veteran, just joined the Patriots earlier this month on a one-year deal. Decker has struggled in recent years, but could ultimately prove an asset to New England because of his big size (6 feet 3 inches, 214 pounds). The rematch of this year’s Super Bowl LII game will surely be very interesting.
