2011 NFL Preseason TV Schedule

RELATED: 2012 NFL preseason TV schedule

With the lockout forcing the cancellation of the Aug. 7 Hall of Fame Game, the NFL preseason now starts Thursday, Aug. 11, with the first live national TV game being Seattle at San Diego at 8pm ET on ESPN. Because NBC lost the Hall of Fame Game, the San Diego at Dallas game has been moved to Aug. 21 and will now air live on NBC at 8pm ET. In all, 17 preseason games will air live across CBS, FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network. NFL Network airs every preseason game, with six live games and the remaining games airing on tape delay. The complete preseason TV live game schedule below, followed by NFL Network’s schedule of live games and first airings of tape-delayed games.
