The NFL Network will air eight games over the course of Week 2 of the preseason including two matchups on Friday, August 19. The Carolina Panthers will take on the New England Patriots on the road, followed by the Los Angeles Rams hosting the Houston Texans.
The first matchup of the night will be one to track considering it features one of the few remaining undecided quarterback battles. In last week’s game against the Washington Commanders, Baker Mayfield completed 4-of-7 passes for 45 yards, and Sam Darnold completed 2-of-3 passes for 16 yards with a touchdown pass. Mayfield opened the preseason as the starting quarterback, but an official announcement for the regular season has yet to be made.
