We are two days into the second week of the NFL’s full preseason slate, and if Saturday is anything like the first five games so far it figures to be entertaining, to say the least.
On Thursday night at Soldier Field, we saw a nifty fourth-quarter comeback by the Chicago Bears against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was the same at Oakland on Friday, when the Raiders rallied in the closing seconds to edge the Detroit Lions, 27-26.
There was no Drew Brees at the Superdome, but the New Orleans Saints held off the Tennessee Titans. There was no defense in Foxborough as the New England Patriots (42) and Philadelphia Eagles (35) combined for 77 points.
And there was seemingly no way to stop the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, who crushed the visiting San Diego Chargers early and often, 41-14.
Again, it’s the preseason, so no one is putting anyone in the playoffs just yet. But there are eight more games on tap Saturday night, and we are here to take a look at what may be worth keeping an eye on.
