The preseason starts at 3 p.m.

This is the first official live preview of the 2016 season, and we’re sure many of you will be asking yourself questions about what we’ll see in the games.
Here are the most important things to know for the season so far.
First, it’s a matter of perspective.
The season will be long and unpredictable, but there are a few things that will help you get a better sense of what to expect.
NFL.tv will have a team-by-team breakdown of all 32 teams in the league, including which teams are best positioned to win their respective divisions, and the NFL.org team ranking will also give you a good sense of how each team is shaping up.
There will be plenty of new games as well, so stay tuned for more information about those.
While preseason games will only be available for a limited number of viewers, we’ve already seen a lot of interesting things to watch.
Watch the first game of the preseason at 3:30 p., and check back for the first full preseason game of Week 5 at 10 p.
The first preseason game will be on Thursday, Oct, 17, with the first preseason tilt on Sunday, Oct., 22.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the highlights from the first two preseason games.
First of all, the Vikings will be getting an upgrade from their 2017 team.
The Vikings signed running back Adrian Peterson to a three-year, $55 million contract, and they’ve signed quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a four-year deal worth $50 million.
Peterson has struggled with injury, and Bridgewater is expected to make a big impact on the team, but the Vikings are looking for a new running back to get more carries.
They also signed defensive end Mike Zimmer to a five-year extension.
The addition of Zimmer and Bridgewater will provide some much-needed competition for former Viking Derrick Morgan, who has been playing for the Raiders since the start of last season.
The Falcons have also added some talent, and will look to build around their running back tandem of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.
Freeman has the ability to take over the lead role in the backfield, and Coleman is a capable receiver out of the backfield.
Atlanta will also be without linebacker John Abraham, who suffered a season-ending ACL tear in Week 1, and linebacker T.J. McDonald, who missed most of last year with an ACL injury.
Both players will return in Week 4.
Atlanta has the most players on the roster to be a first-round pick, and there’s a lot to like about them.
With their young talent, they could contend for a playoff spot in the NFC, and if they can keep all of their young players healthy, they have a shot at being a Super Bowl contender.
The Falcons also have some of their top defensive prospects in linebacker Deion Jones, linebacker Dunta Robinson and defensive tackle Deion Bell.
If the Bengals can continue to win at home, and keep their offense on track, they will be in good shape.
They’re expected to have a new quarterback in Andy Dalton, and have plenty of weapons around him, including running back Giovani Bernard and wide receiver A.J
