On Friday, several 2013 NFL preseason games will be live streaming and televised on the schedule. Among them, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will be in action, as will last year's Super Bowl runner-up team, the San Francisco 49ers. According to a Stripe Hype report, certain games will be televised, while all are available live online with a special service.
The NFL preseason live stream games will be available via the NFL Preseason Live subscription service on Friday and throughout the remainder of the preseason, according to Sports Ticket Soup's listing. The service, which has lowered in price each passing week of the preseason schedule, allows fans to watch any of the games all the way through September 15 of the regular season schedule. Fans get to watch multiple games on the screen at once using a laptop computer or tablet mobile device.
On Friday night, one game gets national TV coverage as the New England Patriots take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The game starts at 8 p.m. EST on FOX, with Tom Brady expected to play after slightly tweaking his knee during practice this week. It's likely Brady won't play the full game as a precaution, since the team will need him most when the real season begins. Also on Friday, Buffalo plays at Minnesota at 7 p.m. EST, while the Saints and Raiders play at 8 p.m. EST in Oakland. The Kansas City Chiefs will play at San Francisco, also at 8 p.m. EST. Many of these games are likely to be shown in the teams' local regions for fans.
These Friday preseason games won't feature the starters on the field for the full games, as teams just want to test out their personnel. Usually, they'll play for a few possessions, or at most the first half of the game, but the preseason is a great way for fans to get a look at some of the potential new players on the roster for the coming season. Some players may also be auditioning for roster spots, so keep an eye out for those trying to secure a starting job for the regular season!
