With two final NFL games today, the preseason comes to a close. The regular season is now only a little over a week away.

New York Giants vs. New York Jets

Time: 1 p.m. ET
TV channel: NFL Network
Live streams: Vidgo, fuboTV, NFL+

The battle of two undefeated (in the preseason) New York teams kicks off the start of the NFL games today. New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh has already announced that he will be treating this game as a dress rehearsal for his team, which means that the starters will get significant time.

One surprise from this game is that the Jets are willing to play their starters, considering the injury Zach Wilson suffered in their first preseason game. Regardless, Joe Flacco will get the start here and will be QB1 for the Jets heading into the season.

The Giants have yet to say who will be playing, but with the QB position still in flux, we can expect to see all three QBs on the field for a certain amount of time. Daniel Jones will likely head into the season as the starter, but he needs to use the preseason to ensure he can extend his leash before the regular season begins. If he struggles, Tyrod Taylor is not far behind looking to take over the QB1 role.

Detroit Lions vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Time: 4:30 p.m. ET
TV channel: CBS
Live streams: Vidgo, fuboTV, NFL+

The last game of the preseason and the second NFL game today pits the Hard Knocks-darling Detroit Lions against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Lions have been the talk of the town this offseason thanks to their incredibly dynamic head coach Dan Campbell and their young, exciting roster.

The Lions will be playing their starters; however, starting QB Jared Goff will not play. This means that Detroit will have David Blough and Tim Boyle under center.

As for Pittsburgh, the Steelers will be playing their starters for at least the start of this game. Head coach Mike Tomlin has said that QB Mitch Trubisky will get the start. The battle for QB1 is still very close between Trubisky, rookie Kenny Pickett, and Mason Rudolph. This game will be the last opportunity for each of the three guys in contention to stake their claim for the starting role.
