Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots (7:30 ET, NFLN)
- Tom Brady is expected to sit out, giving Garoppolo a chance to get plenty of snaps. Garoppolo's camp performance has been spotty by all accounts and he'll be playing behind a patchwork offensive line expected to be missing all of last year's starters on Thursday night.
New Orleans Saints at Baltimore Ravens (7:30 ET)
Washington Redskins at Cleveland Browns (8 ET)
- This is the most interesting game of the night. We've heard a lot of positive reports about Griffin's progress in year two under coach Jay Gruden. While we can only learn so much in the preseason, he'll want to keep his momentum going.
- It's a much bigger game for Manziel. He could wind up playing half the game. This is his regular season. If he plays well enough, the Browns will be confident enough to play him in November.
Miami Dolphins at Chicago Bears (8 ET)
New York Jets at Detroit Lions (8 ET)
- We'll also be watching running back Ameer Abdullah's debut. He has a real chance to be Detroit's Week 1 starter.
