Yes, the Green Bay Packers begin their preseason schedule this week, but the same goes for 29 other teams around the NFL over the next three days, as everyone but the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens takes the field for the first time. Chicago and Baltimore of course got an early start by playing in last week’s Hall of Fame Game in Canton, with the Ravens coming out on top.

This week, several games will be on national television as the NFL Network airs a handful of contests. However, no games will be shown on over-the-air networks or ESPN until next week.

Here’s the schedule for this week, with a note for the games that will be on NFL Network live. Keep in mind that each game will be replayed on NFL Network at some point, so check out the NFL Network’s schedule to see which games will be shown at what time.
