    Week 2 of the NFL preseason is ready to kick off. Here are the matchups, channels, and times, as well as updated scores throughout the week.

    The second week of the NFL preseason started with a Thursday night game between the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. With a full slate on Saturday, there is now going to be football played for the next five days! How can you watch each game, what channel will they be featured on, and what time does each start?

    As the week progresses, we will update every single score for each of the games played.

    Among some of the storylines to keep an eye on this week will be the potential premier of the newly acquired Ezekiel Elliott for the New England Patriots, a possible 25th straight preseason win for the Baltimore Ravens, and the 2023 debut of Josh Allen for the Buffalo Bills.

    Every NFL Score for Week 2 of the Preseason

    Thursday, Aug. 17

    • Browns vs. Eagles
      • Start Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
      • TV Channel: NFL Network, NFL+
      • Final Score: 18-18

    Well, that was something. Injuries were the main storyline following the Browns vs. Eagles TIE Thursday night. Philadelphia first-round pick Nolan Smith was the biggest name to leave the game, but others like Zech McPhearson, Tyrie Cleveland, and Moro Ojomo soon followed suit. The highlight of the game was another solid performance from Browns QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson.

    Friday, Aug. 18

    • Panthers vs. Giants
      • Start Time: 7 p.m. ET
      • TV Channel: NFL Network, NFL+
      • Final Score: 21-19

    Not much to report from this one. Daniel Jones looked good after playing just one drive. However, the drive was nearly perfect, ending with a touchdown pass to Daniel Bellinger on a 2nd-and-4, capping a 10-play, 75-yard possession. Bryce Young looked better than during his first preseason game and has clearly developed a report with fellow rookie Jonathan Mingo.

    • Bengals vs. Falcons
      • Start Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
      • TV Channel: NFL+
      • Final Score: 13-13

    All eyes in this game were on Bijan Robinson as he made his NFL debut. Although it was for just one drive, the rookie RB shined as he showcased his athleticism and talent. Desmond Ridder showed a clear connection with WR Drake London and both defenses played well in this low-scoring affair that ultimately ended in a tie.
