Full NFL Preseason Schedule 2017: 8 National Games Slated

The full 2017 NFL preseason schedule, which includes eight nationally televised games and starts on Aug. 3 with the Hall of Fame Game

It’s only been two months since the conclusion of Super Bowl LI and already NFL fans are likely going through withdrawals. That’s why there’s so much buzz about the NFL, voluntary workouts, and things of that nature. However, that’s all just a taste — not the real thing. We don’t get an actual taste really until the 2017 NFL preseason schedule kicks off.

Luckily, we can now at least know what dates we have to look forward to. For some time now, we’ve known that the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, OH on Aug. 3 would be between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals. However, the rest of the NFL preseason schedule has remained up in the air. That is no more.

The league released the 2017 NFL preseason schedule on Monday afternoon. This slate of preseason matchups includes eight games that will be broadcast on national networks. The rest of the games, of course, can be viewed through NFL Game Pass where they’ll be streaming.

So when is your team playing? Here’s a look at the full 2017 NFL preseason schedule:
