It’s Week 2 of the preseason and that means the Detroit Lions are one week closer to their 2018 regular season debut. We’re in the depths of the Matt Patricia era, and this week will hopefully bring us more answers and clarity about the trajectory of this team.
After a week of joint practices, the Lions and New York Giants are ready to shed the “no-live tackling” rule and play some “real” football.
It will also be Ford Field’s debut and local fans’ first opportunity to see the team in Detroit and try all of the stadium’s new food and drink offerings.
But if you’re unable to watch the game in person, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Though the game is not being televised live nationally, there are options for out-of-towners, including NFL Game Pass and several nationally-televised replays to make sure you get your Lions fix.

The New Orleans Saints are gearing up for their second preseason game of 2018 when they play host to the Arizona Cardinals on Friday. Both clubs are coming off victories from their first week, and while exhibition wins and losses don’t necessarily mean much in the grand scheme of things, there’s plenty of reason to dial in. Here’s a few players to watch throughout the course of the game.
Taysom Hill
Anyone that wanted to crown Taysom Hill as the definitive and primary backup to Drew Brees might want to pump the brakes. On the stat sheet against the Jaguars, Hill finished 8-of-9 for 72 yards and picked up 52 yards on the ground on 7 attempts. Tom Savage, who played all but one snap in the first half, went 10-of-14 for 70 yards.
Hill took sacks on the night, and over a third of his yardage came at the hands of a Tre’Quan Smith connection of 25 yards.

Time for Evans to go home to come homeThe Dallas Cowboys clock is where Scott told Tenika is the only place she could put it. A closet with the door shut. But their son, Bengals WILL linebacker Jordan Evans, thinks Saturday’s second pre-season game in Dallas (7 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) is timely enough for his mom’s side of the family to show its true colors.
Vontaze Burfict, Preston Brown have short time to work on chemistryCINCINNATI — Linebackers Preston Brown and Vontaze Burfict have had only one week of training camp to play next to each other, but it’s clear that they’ve started to jell during the limited time frame — at least on the field.
