The National Broadcast Choices

The NFL's national TV choices for the preseason hold several highlights. Even though the Hall of Fame Game is usually a platform for showcasing roster depth, it  served as our initial sighting of Aaron Rodgers in the New York Jets uniform. The condensed preseason might compel teams to rethink how they utilize their main players in the build-up to the regular season.

In the second week of the preseason, viewers should eagerly anticipate Odell Beckham Jr's inaugural appearance with the Baltimore Ravens. Lamar Jackson, the star quarterback, is set to start playing on his newly extended contract. The preseason's final week could see three rookie quarterbacks take the field – Anthony Richardson (Indianapolis Colts), Bryce Young (Carolina Panthers), and CJ Stroud (Houston Texans).
