NFL Network Set To Air Every Preseason Game

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Last year the NFL Network aired 53 preseason games throughout the Summer, but this year they're amping it up a bit. In fact, the league's channel will be airing every single game at some point during the month of August, and will include all 11 nationally televised games. Via NFL-N PR....

NFL Network is home to all the NFL preseason games for the first time with 65 games airing on the only network dedicated entirely to football. In addition for the first time, the entire NFL preseason schedule will be seen in high definition nationally including 12 live preseason games, the most in the network’s history.

Week 1 of the 2009 NFL preseason on NFL Network features five live games highlighted by the debuts of first-round quarterback draft picks MATTHEW STAFFORD and MARK SANCHEZ. The live coverage kicks off with a doubleheader on Friday, August 14 at 8:00 PM ET with the St. Louis Rams vs. New York Jets, followed by Denver Broncos vs. San Francisco 49ers. Saturday, August 15 features the first-ever live tripleheader with the Atlanta Falcons vs. Detroit Lions beginning at 4:00 PM ET, followed immediately by Chicago Bears vs. Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks vs. San Diego Chargers.

There’s no better place for Fantasy Football fans to prepare their picks and depth charts for the 2009 regular season than with NFL Network and’s all-encompassing coverage of the 2009 preseason. All 12 live preseason games will include halftime shows featuring NFL Network’s team of analysts from its Los Angeles studios and five-minute NFL Network Now updates between game broadcasts reporting the most up-to-date news and information. NFL Network’s schedule includes a total of 162 telecasts as it includes every game, live games and game replays of all the preseason action.
I'm so stoked that Comcast and the NFL Network worked out that deal to keep the channel on their programming. Get your calendars out folks, because here is the entire list of games, and times that they're being aired (*- indicated live telecast on NFL-N)!

Is it just me or is the Skins preseason schedule a fucking bitch? BAL, PIT, NE, and JAX. Jesus, thankfully those games don't matter.

Yeah nothing worse than a bunch of scrubs playing another bunch of scrubs. C'mon, there's no comparison between the money grab of the preseason compared to a real game.

Preseason contests doesn't get me all excited to pay for a channel I already have little interest in.

My neighbor is trying to make the Packers' squad, so although I'm a Broncos fan, I'll be watching the Pack a bit more intently than I usually do. The NFL's almost here again. Awesome!

There's nothing more meaningful than the Great Lakes Classic between the Lions & Browns August 23.

Bears at Broncos in wk 3 has some meaning. Cutlerfucker will probably fake an injury.
