Your 2009 NFL National Preseason TV Schedule

Monday, March 30, 2009

The National Football League released it's preseason schedule today, and while you can view the whole thing at, I figured I'd share the National TV portion of the schedule with you. There are some great games on the slate, but it appears ESPN lucked out with the most intriguing.....a rematch of Super Bowl XLIII. Here's the rest of the schedule....

What a relief. For a minute there, I thought that ESPN would use up all their Raiders primetime games in the preseason instead of when the games matter.

Of course, CBS has New England and Washington. Nothing sells meaningless preseason games like big markets. I'm a huge NFL fan and it is effective to evaluate talent, but until I have Mel Kiper's job, I will clamor for the regular season to start.

Actually I think the biggest victory here is Fox getting the Cowboys' first game in their new stadium. Even though it's on a Friday, people will actually tune in for at least a few minutes to get a look.
