Week 1 of the NFL preseason was all about rookie debuts. Quarterback battles will be the focus of Week 2.

Because the NFL has shortened its preseason, coaches have just three games to choose their starting quarterbacks. As such, the second preseason game may be the decisive moment in some of the league’s more noteworthy QB competitions.

The Saints are playing in prime time with Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill locked in a neck-and-neck battle. In Denver, Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock are “even-steven” after the first preseason game, according to Broncos coach Vic Fangio.

Elsewhere, rookies Justin Fields, Trey Lance and Mac Jones will hope to make up ground in their races to unseat current starters Andy Dalton, Jimmy Garoppolo and Cam Newton, respectively. And the Colts will need to decide whether Jacob Eason or Sam Ehlinger will start if Carson Wentz (foot) isn’t ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

Below is the full schedule for all the games in Week 2 of the NFL preseason, plus live scores, streaming options and TV information.
