The NFL broadcasted on August 8 its preseason schedule for August and early September. From the announcement it can be noted that there are a few flukes this year in comparison with the other seasons. The upcoming Rio Olympics has led to the back of loading the NFL National TV schedule. CBS, NBC, and FOX will televise their games over a four-day span between August 25 and 28. One thing is for sure the Olympics games will be aired too and hence the need for the rescheduling of the programs. The games will kick on Sunday Night.

Since all of NFL’s TV partners televise two games each, the broadcast networks will have to take care of their assurances during that time edge.

The opener games begins on Sunday August 7. ESPN network will have the two opener games aired early in the preseason with the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, OH on August 7 and Rams’ first game in Los Angeles against Dallas on August 13.

Often times the Hall of Fame game usually is broadcasted by NBC, but the NBC is committing its resources to the Rio Olympics from August through 21. For this reason ESPN takes over this year.

Week 2 will see the Green Bay take on Indianapolis at Dallas Los Angeles. This game will be aired on ESPN at 8:00 PM on Saturday, August 13. Without a doubt this game leaves a lot to be desired considering that the two are the long-time rivals. The other highlights featuring the schedule will be as follows:

The Rams will make their return to Los Angeles in Preseason Week 1 where they will play Dallas Cowboys on Saturday Night, August 13 (ESPN, 8:00 PM ET).

Then you will watch the Monday Night Football Event, 26 September, which involves New Orleans Saints which will welcome Atlanta Falcons at the Mercedes Benz Superdome. The Superdome is being taken to be commemorated after 10 years ago experiencing the Hurricane Katrina.

Then the next headline you should follow is the ThanksGiving event that will feature the tripleheader on 24 November. Lions will welcome Minnesota Vikings in Detroit. Then the afternoon you will watch Dallas Cowboys welcoming the Washington Redskins at 4:30 PM. The last event in the Thanksgiving holiday is Pittsburgh Steelers who come to Indianapolis Colts nest.

As mentioned before, the Sunday Night and Afternoon will be using this kind of scheduling. However, the flexible scheduling will not be conducted under the other events like Thursday, Saturday, or Monday nights. For those who follow the flexible schedule, it is important to acknowledge that the schedule will be announced 12 days prior to the game.

For the week 17, the afternoon game will be announced in scheduling 6 days in advance game. The Flexible scheduling is happening to improve the quality of the events in all Sunday time slots. This will give surprise to both team and audience about the next matchups.
