NFL preseason schedule

The dates and kickoff times for a 65-game NFL preseason schedule were announced today, beginning with the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game between the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins in Canton, Ohio on Monday night, August 9.

The Hall of Fame Game – televised live at 8:00 PM ET on ABC – is the first of 11 national preseason telecasts carried by NFL broadcast partners ABC, CBS, FOX and ESPN. 

With NFL Network airing 54 games either live or on tape delay, every snap of every NFL preseason game will be available to fans this summer for the first time ever. 

The 2004 preseason schedule was announced in March, without dates and times, which now have been determined.
