NFL Preseason Week 2 Schedule: Super Bowl reunion week with PIT-GB & PHI-NE

Thursday features rematches from last year’s Super Bowl and the Packers’ most recent appearance in the big game.

NFL: Super Bowl LII-Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The second week of the NFL 2018 Preseason schedule is upon us, and the Green Bay Packers are in action on the first day of the week. Their game this week pits them against the same franchise that they defeated in their last Super Bowl appearance — a 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.

This is not the only Super Bowl rematch on the schedule, however. In fact, the most recent championship game — between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots — also sees a rematch on Thursday, as those two teams square off in an exhibition contest.

By virtue of their victory in Super Bowl LII, the Eagles also get to open the NFL season with a home game exactly three weeks from now; that game brings the Atlanta Falcons to town, a team that played in the Super Bowl the year before and made the postseason as a Wild Card in 2017.
