The NFL preseason will be here before you know it. While most fans only have interest in watching just their team during the preseason, some might be starved for football enough that they'll have whatever primetime games are on blasting on their televisions.

NFL Network will be the channel to watch if you're interested in watching any preseason game no matter who is playing. According to, NFL Network will carry 23 games this summer. The Cincinnati Bengals won't be included on any of the NFL Network games but that's more of a note for those living outside of the Cincinnati market.
