PPreparing for the season is always of great importance for NFL teams ahead of a tough and demanding full season.
From last year and after the summer when the preseason was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, each team now plays just three games.
It also makes more sense after the regular season has been extended to 17 games and 18 weeks.
The preseason usually starts the first week of August with a Hall of Fame game, and this summer the game between jacksonville jaguars as well as las vegas raiders will take place at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio on Thursday, August 4th.
The NFL announced full pre-season schedules for all teams back in June, and all duels have now been given a start date and time.
Will starting players be in the NFL preseason?
One of the biggest questions fans have before their favorite teams’ exhibition matches is whether they’ll be able to see their favorite players in action ahead of next season.
Starting players do not usually play the entire match in pre-season games, although each team rotates its players in its own way.
For example, some coaches allow their starters to rest in the first two games before playing them in the third. Others give their beginners a small amount of playing time in each game.
Kansas City Chiefs Main coach Andy Reid, for example, uses his starting line-up for a quarter in the first pre-season game. In the second duel, you should expect them to be on the field for the whole half, and in the last game, he could offer them more minutes, since they usually play almost three-quarters of the game.
reed does this to keep its starting players fresh and fit ahead of the first week of the new NFL campaign.
