Bengals vs Colts, live stream 2017. Bengals vs Colts Preseason Week 4: Game time, TV schedule, online stream, announcers, replay
There are few teams that Week 4 of the NFL preseason means a great deal to. After all, it’s largely a game used to make final roster decisions at the bottom of the depth chart. All of those players could very well win or lose jobs with how well they perform Thursday. This is why the preseason finale is so critical, even though it never draws much national fanfare. Among the Bengals sitting squarely on the roster bubble include Tra Carson, Marcus Hardison, Christian Westerman, J.J. Dielman, Will Clarke, DeShawn Williams, P.J. Dawson, Demetrious Cox, KeiVarae Russell and Bene Benwikere.
With Andrew Luck likely to miss Week 1 of the regular season, Scott Tolzien will be the starter. He’s been quite bad this preseason, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to at least see some part of him in this game. Meanwhile, the Colts will also look to fill out their depth chart on defense as questions still linger there. The final preseason game is a final 60-minute exercise to sort out a handful of roster spots. It’s also a last audition for players – those “bubble’’ guys – hoping to make the necessary impression.
The smallest Colt (5-7, 153 pounds) has been a huge factor. His 11 receptions are tied for 3rd-most in the league while his 124 yards rank 8th. The coaching staff must determine whether the former Akron standout or returnee Quan Bray is the better fit as the fifth or sixth receiver and top return man. There’s little chance there’s room for both.

Bulgaria vs Sweden predictions for Thursday’s World Cup qualifier in Sofia. Sweden hope to open up a gap at the top of their World Cup qualifying group with a win over Bulgaria. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips. As the group stands heading into play, Sweden are top (via goal difference) with France on 13 points. For now, they’d be in the World Cup proper. The second place side is only for a playoff,
Bulgaria entered the current qualifying campaign hoping to end a 20-year wait for a World Cup appearance as well as 14-year exile from major international competitions, and they enjoyed a decent start despite being placed in a very strong group. The Lions were soundly beaten by both France and Sweden, but back to back wins over Belarus and Netherlands seriously improved their qualifying chances. However, just as everybody expected the Lions to place extra pressure on top teams in the group, they suffered
Petar Hubchev has decided not to call up unattached goalkeeper Nikolay Mihaylov, along with striker Spas Delev and midfielders Aleksandar Tonev and Svetoslav Dyakov. All of those players started in the loss to Belarus, so changes have been made.
but that is something that Bulgaria would happily take. The Bulgarians are four points back of the two leaders, so all hopes essentially do hinge on this match. Sweden would like a win here to keep back the Netherlands, but a draw would just about erase Bulgaria’s chances of moving on.
Seahawks vs Raiders, live stream 2017. Raiders vs Seahawks: 3 Bold predictions for Preseason Week 4
The Seahawks have had a solid preseason, with a 3-0 record, and are already showing signs of why they are the heavy favourites in the NFC West Division. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders are 0-3 in three starts, but remain a top contender in the AFC (Sports Interaction win total: 10). Oakland opened as a 1.5-point favourite on the NFL odds page, but that point spread has shifted. Now, it’s set as a Pick ’em with the Seahawks priced at -125. The over/under has dropped from 40.5 to 40. Week 4 of the NFL preseason is also known as the dog days of August, most rosters are set and the one thing on ever head coach’s mind is staying healthy. Both teams will resting most, if not all its starters. Of note, the Raiders are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games, and the over is 20-6-2 in the Raiders’ last 28 home games.
The preseason is nearly over, as the Oakland Raiders host the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night in both team’s final game before the regular season arrives. Although many folks consider this a meaningless game, it surely has final-roster ramifications. Both clubs are still faced with the tumultuous task of trimming their rosters down to the mandatory 53-man limit. This final preseason contest should help them make the difficult decisions surrounding the last few spots on the roster. By extension, that means several NFL hopefuls will be battling for their futures on Thursday.
So what can we expect to see in Preseason Week 4? There will be plenty of playing time for the end-of-the-roster guys. Don’t get your hopes up of seeing any of either team’s stars playing significant snaps, if at all. This final outing is solely for those fighting for roster spots.

The Raiders and Seahawks both figure to be in the playoff hunt in 2017, so this could be an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the players who could step up when/if injuries start piling up later in the year.
Bears vs Titans, live stream 2017. Bears vs. Titans: Preseason TV Schedule, Live Stream: Where to Watch
The Chicago Bears enter Week 3 of the NFL preseason with an interesting dilemma at the quarterback position. Everybody in the Bears’ organization has made it obvious. Mike Glennon is the starting quarterback for the 2017 season. However, Mitch Trubisky is the future and has looked much better than Glennon through two preseason games. This makes many wonder if the future should come sooner than expected. On Sunday against the Titans, the Bears have an interesting plan in place. Glennon will still get the start and play the entire first half with the first-team offense and against the Titans’ first-team defense. However, Trubisky will start the second half on the field, leading the Bears’ first-team offense. It is unknown whether he will be playing against the Titans’ defensive starters, but it will be interesting to see him lead the Bears’ starters nonetheless.
This much is for sure, we will learn more about Trubisky in this game than we have in the first two preseason matchups. If Glennon looks terrible again and Trubisky dominates with the first-team offense against the Titans’ starters, what excuse will John Fox and company have to continue to start Glennon. Led by quarterback Marcus Mariota, a fantastic rushing attack and a talented defensive unit, the Titans are an extremely talented squad with obvious postseason upside this year. Make no mistake about it, this will be a tough test against a team that has a chance to make some serious noise in the AFC.
The quarterbacks will be the primary focus, but I am interested to see how many Bears’ players perform in this “dress rehearsal” game. Can wide receiver Kevin White step up and make an impact? Will Leonard Floyd continue to dominate against an elite offensive line? Does Tarik Cohen continue to look like an impressive playmaker who will make a huge impact as a rookie? We will learn all that and more this afternoon.
Bears vs Titans, live stream 2017. Bears vs. Titans Preseason Week 3: Complete game preview
There is plenty to watch on both sides of the field. The Titans have an elite defense that will need to have a repeat performance of last season in order to meet playoff expectations. The Bears have major question marks on offense, making this a crucial game for players in need of something to prove. Coming off their first win of the preseason, the Chicago Bears will look to make it two in a row in the biggest game of the preseason. In this one, the Bears take on the Tennessee Titans, who are another playoff-caliber team with a strong defense. Starters are expected to play into the second half, in a game commonly referred to as the “dress rehearsal.
As touched on previously, the Titans have an impressive group of running backs. While Demarco Murray is the starter, former Heisman winner Derrick Henry will look to cement his legitimacy on offense with yet other big game. Following a generally uneventful rookie campaign, Henry will look to show that he can take on a bigger workload in his sophomore season.
With the exception of tight end Delanie Walker, the Titans had a thin receiving corps last season. The Titans selected Western Michigan’s Corey Davis with the fifth pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, and Davis is expected to take on a large load of targets. The impact made by Davis could be a defining part of the Titans’ season.
Bills vs Ravens, live stream 2017. Buffalo Bills vs Baltimore Ravens schedule: Odds and Point Spread, tv channel, preview and prediction
The starters I’d like to see them come out of the locker room at halftime and play a series or two give or take,” McDermott said. “LeSean will be around that area as a starter. So we’ll see how he feels. He’s been in this league long enough to know what he needs to do to get himself ready as he ramps up his rep cycle. We’ve talked about that the last two days on how many reps or how long I should play,” said McCoy. “It’s hard because you always want to be safe, but you also want to get that game speed and get the flow of the game. I normally don’t really play as much in these games in my career. Sometimes I play, sometimes I don’t. It depends how I feel. We’ll figure it out. We’ll just go as the game goes.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: the Bills will be without multiple players in their next game. The major missing pieces are Cordy Glenn and Jordan Matthews, who will travel with the team, but not play, because #process. Others already ruled out are Colt Anderson, Jeremy Butler, Rod Streater, and Tanner Vallejo. Marcell Dareus and Kevon Seymour are also day-to-day. Yes, it is only preseason so take this with a grain of salt, but the Baltimore Ravens defense has been on fire in their first two games. They are first in the league in total defense and have allowed just 129.0 yards per game—over 100 yards better than second place.
It was a nice interception he made in the ballgame against Philly a few nights ago and that was encouraging to see, especially when you consider the amount of time we’ve had him prior to that game,” said defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier of Gaines. “We hope to come out of this ball game on Saturday with some confirmation on where we’re going at that right corner spot. Those guys will all get some snaps, we’ll try to get them against good competition, so we can make a good evaluation.
Cardinals vs Falcons, live stream 2017. Falcons vs. Cardinals: Mercedes-Benz Stadium debut, matchups to watch and things to know
Atlanta is 0-2 this preseason, and while the record doesn’t matter at this time of the year, coach Dan Quinn has said he holds all members of his team to the same standard. The Falcons will face a Cardinals squad that is 1-2 in their exhibition games, including a 20-18 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame Game. Prior to even entering the stadium, fans will be greeted by the 73,000-pound Falcon statue stationed outside of Gate 3. Once inside, the size of the stadium and the personality becomes immediately apparent. With a massive 1,075-feet long, 58-feet tall halo board wrapped around the top of the roof, fans will have a clear view of the action from wherever they sit.
Although the Falcons beat the Cardinals 38-19 last season in the Georgia Dome, Arizona should provide a great benchmark for Atlanta at this point. The Cardinals have several elite players on both sides of the ball who can match up with the Falcons strength-on-strength. Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu are two of the best defensive backs in the game, and it will be interesting to see them line up against Mohamed Sanu or either Jones or Gabriel, if either receiver is available.
David Johnson is one of the NFL’s top young running backs and a versatile threat who can beat a defense as a runner or a receiver. The Falcons’ linebacker corps has stood out this preseason, but Johnson will be the best player they’ve faced. Falcons head coach Dan Quinn seems to have a blueprint set for his club’s third preseason game. Last season in Week 3, both the starting offense and defense appeared to play six series and left the game following their first possessions in the third quarter. Quinn hinted this week that we should expect the same
Cardinals vs Falcons, live stream 2017. Falcons vs. Cardinals: Mercedes-Benz Stadium debut, matchups to watch and things to know
Because this is still a preseason game, the biggest storyline for Saturday is the opening of the state-of-the-art stadium. After years of anticipation, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is ready for football, and it should truly be a sight to behold. Prior to even entering the stadium, fans will be greeted by the 73,000-pound Falcon statue stationed outside of Gate 3. Once inside, the size of the stadium and the personality becomes immediately apparent. With a massive 1,075-feet long, 58-feet tall halo board wrapped around the top of the roof, fans will have a clear view of the action from wherever they sit.
The Arizona Cardinals travel to Atlanta to take on the Atlanta Falcons on the road in the preseason. For the Cardinals it will be their fourth preseason game, but not their last, as they played a week earlier than the rest of the league in the Hall of Fame Game. Playing the Falcons in the preseason is a bit of a treat because it has hardly happened.
While last week the Cardinals played a very familiar team in the Chicago Bears, a team against whom they have faced 42 times in the preseason, the Cardinals will face Atlanta for only the fourth time ever in the preseason.
Dolphins vs Eagles live stream 2017. Eagles vs. Dolphins joint practice notes: A new position for Jaylen Watkins
Nelson Agholor and Wentz connected for two passes across the middle. Agholor snapped both of them out of the air and exploded up the field for extra yards. It’s good to see the two connect on the crossing patterns because it’s an area that Wentz looked to Jordan Matthews often times in the past. Wentz was off on two passes to Alshon Jeffery in the corner of the end zone. They were trying to work on fade routes in the red zone. Dolphins CB Xavien Howard did a good job of getting a body on Jeffery on one play, but he got away with pass interference on another. Wentz turned in a solid day at the office today. He went to Torrey Smith on a deep pass again today. This time Smith was able to get behind Dolphins CB Jordan Lucas, and Wentz found him for the touchdown.
Expect some grouchiness on both sides Thursday night as the teams are practicing together this week and guys tend to get under each other’s skin when that happens. Miami visited the City of Brotherly Love in the 2015 regular season and won 20-19. Current Eagles starting QB Carson Wentz was still at North Dakota State then. Sam Bradford started and left with a shoulder injury. Miami’s Ryan Tannehill threw the go-ahead touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry early in the fourth quarter. Tannehill already has been lost for this season. The Dolphins are 1-5 ATS in the past six regular-season meetings. The Eagles are 6-2 ATS in their past eight at home.
Alshon Jeffery, the former Bears Pro Bowl receiver added in free agency, made his Philadelphia debut vs. the Bills and caught two balls for 23 yards. Wentz completed 6 of 9 passes for 56 yards. Looking for an early NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year betting candidate? Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett, the No. 14 overall pick, has been dominant with three sacks and eight QB pressures. Projected backup QB Nick Foles should play Thursday. He returned to practice over the weekend after missing two weeks with elbow soreness.
Seahawks vs Chiefs , live stream 2017. During the third week of the preseason, Tony Romo will make his broadcasting debut during the Seahawks-Chiefs game.
Romo will be announcing the game along with Jim Nantz and Tracy Wolfson. Romo officially retired and reached a lucrative deal with CBS to join their broadcasting team after flirting with the idea of playing for a new team this season. In fact, the Chiefs were one of a few teams linked with Romo in the offseason, along with the Denver Broncos, Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals. Rumors were that Romo was willing to play for the Chiefs if there was room, but K.C. never once wavered from their public support of Alex Smith and, in the end, there wasn’t a single team willing to pay whatever Jerry Jones was asking for his back-up.
Despite playing for the Broncos in the preseason, it’s still not clear whether or not Charles will make the team. He will need to prove he’s actually healthy enough to take the wear and tear that a regular season brings for any player, let alone one who has dealt with multiple knee surgeries over the last couple years. Those surgeries (and the question marks about his health that came with it) are what caused the Chiefs to finally turn the page on the Charles era in the first place.
Injuries. Even worse than Rawls or Lacy, Prosise cannot stay healthy for long stretches at a time. And it’s never the same injury. Currently, Prosise is dealing with a groin injury. At some point the Seahawks could just move on from Prosise because of having no faith he will be reliably healthy.
