2021 NFL preseason schedule: dates, times, TV channels for each game, week by week

A year after having no preseason, the NFL will release a three-game version on August 5.

The NFL decided to cancel the preseason last year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. That meant two things. For gamers, it meant they couldn’t prove themselves on the field while looking to challenge for places on the back-end roster. That certainly hurt players in the 53-man roster bubble, but the expanded practice teams gave them a chance to team up.

For fans, it meant another five-week hiatus from the NFL, something that was particularly hard to bear given the sports hiatus that occurred during the early stages of the pandemic.

But now, preseason is back, albeit a condensed version of preseason. The league has added a 17th game to the rotation this year, which has resulted in the preseason being shortened to three games for all but two teams. The only teams to play four times are the Steelers and Cowboys, who will meet in the Hall of Fame to begin preseason on August 5.

below is the full agenda for each week of the 2021 NFL preseason, as well as how to watch each game.

When does the 2021 NFL preseason start and end?

  • Start date: Thursday 5th August
  • Final date: Sunday August 29

The NFL preseason will begin on August 5 and will end a six-month drought of action in the NFL. This year, the preseason will begin with the Steelers and Cowboys meeting at Tom Benson Stadium in Canton, Ohio, for the annual Hall of Fame.

Both the Steelers and Cowboys will play four preseason games while the rest of the league will play three. This marks the first year with the NFL’s new three-game preseason format and the 17-game regular season format.

The NFL preseason will end on August 29 with the start of the initial season between the Cowboys and Buccaneers scheduled for Thursday, September 9 at 8:20 p.m. ET.

How to watch NFL preseason games on TV

Throughout the preseason, a select number of preseason games each week will air nationally on NBC, Fox, CBS, ESPN, and the NFL Network. This year, NBC, Fox, CBS and ESPN will combine to show just five national games during the preseason as a tune-up for their broadcasters. NFL Network will stream some games live and re-stream all 49 games in the lead-up to the regular season.

NFL game pass – Available for $ 99.99: Provides live access to all preseason games, as well as replays of all games.

Nationally televised games on NBC, Fox, CBS, and NFL Network can also be streamed live using fuboTV, offering a free seven-day trial.
