Week 3 of the 2011 NFL preseason is upon us, and it represents the best chance to see the starting lineups for every team. Most teams will allow their starters to play at least one half, while others will work into the third quarter as they continue preparations for the regular season.

Keep checking back to this page as our team of NFL writers will update it all week with matchup previews, position battles to watch, game information and much, much more.

There are several marquee games to keep an eye on: The defending champion Green Bay Packers traveling to the home of the 2012 Super Bowl, Indianapolis, to take on the Colts. The battle of New York pits the Jets against the Giants, and the Atlanta Falcons travel to Pittsburgh to test their offense against a stout Steelers defense.

Some other matchups of note include the young Detroit Lions testing their progress against the New England Patriots. The San Diego Chargers will try to continue their progress toward a strong start against the revitalized Arizona Cardinals, and the Sunday Night Football game showcases Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints against the Oakland Raiders.
