Week 2 of the NFL preseason is a great opportunity for players to build on the momentum created from the week before—or to redeem themselves after a disappointing outing. Regardless of which side of the coin players enter the week on, making a positive impression on the coaching staff is a universal goal.
The first game of the week is Thursday night and is between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears. It's followed by NFL action every day after that until Monday night, when the Cleveland Browns take on the Washington Redskins.
It's important to keep these games in perspective, as the value of the preseason is primarily designed to assess the skill level of younger players and to establish a rhythm for the vets heading into the regular season.
Most of the established players across the league will see limited action this week, knowing that Week 3 is typically seen as their official dress rehearsal for the season opener.
Youth will be primarily highlighted here.
