The NFL is entering its third and final preseason week. There will be fewer storylines to watch in Week 3 than the previous two weeks of preseason action — more teams will be resting their starters — but there are still some intriguing ones out there.
Above all else, the quarterback battles still bear watching. The Patriots, 49ers and Saints still have yet to announce their starting quarterbacks for Week 1, though it seems like Cam Newton, Jimmy Garoppolo and Jameis Winston hold the lead in the latter three battles.
Still, each coach is going to continue his team’s quarterback competition through Week 3 of the preseason. That means Mac Jones, Trey Lance and Taysom Hill all still have a chance to emerge as the starters; it just might take a lot to unseat the favorites.
Outside of those competitions, this week will be a good chance to look at some of the NFL’s other backup quarterbacks. Notably, Dwayne Haskins is getting to start for the Steelers as he competes with Mason Rudolph for the backup job. If Haskins does well, he could be tapped as the eventual successor to Ben Roethlisberger.
And, of course, countless players will be fighting for final roster spots. NFL teams have to cut their 80-man rosters down to 53 by 4 p.m. ET on Aug. 31. As such, this will be the last chance for many players to make a case for a place on a roster or practice squad.
Below is the full schedule for all the games in Week 3 of the NFL preseason, plus live scores, streaming options and TV information.
