NFL preseason is just about ready to wrap up with the third and final week of games being played this weekend before the regular season starts in September. The NFL Network will carry two of the three games being played on Friday, so let’s look ahead at both matchups with odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
First up, the New England Patriots will face off against the Tennessee Titans in their final game of preseason play as the Titans will play host. Both teams are 1-1 through their preseason games so far, with the Patriots losing to the Texans and following up with a win over the Packers. The Titans dropped their first game to the Bears but won their second over the Vikings last Saturday. New England rookie cornerback Isaiah Bolden suffered a scary injury that led to him being carted off the field and hospitalized, though he has since been released.
The night wraps up with the Los Angeles Chargers heading to San Francisco to take on the 49ers. Both of these teams are 1-1 through their first two preseason games as well. The Chargers don’t look to be playing any starters, so keep an eye out for backups and younger guys to be seeing plenty of time on the field. The 49ers will obviously have Brock Purdy as their QB1 throughout the regular season, but Sam Darnold and Trey Lance will be battling it out to see who claims the QB2 spot.
