NFL to televise 11 preseason games on networks

The New York Giants get one nationally televised preseason game in 2013 and the Jets are shut out.
The broadcast networks continue to scale back their preseason coverage, opting not to show any games in weeks one and four. NBC and CBS will show two games, Fox has three and ESPN has four. The NFL Network does not produce its own preseason telecasts but it will blanket its schedule from Aug. 8-30 with local preseason telecasts with a handful of live games (that do not conflict with nationally televised games) and lots of tape-delayed showings.

Sun. 4 – Dallas vs. Miami, at Canton, Ohio, 8 p.m. (NBC)
Thur. 8 – Cincinnati at Atlanta, 8 p.m. (ESPN)
Thur. 15 – San Diego at Chicago, 8 p.m. (ESPN)
Fri. 16 – Tampa Bay at New England, 8 p.m. (Fox)
Sun. 18 – Indianapolis at Giants, 8 p.m. (Fox)
Mon. 19 – Pittsburgh at Washington, 8 p.m. (ESPN)
Thur. 22 – Carolina at Baltimore, 8 p.m. (ESPN)
Fri. 23 – Seattle at Green Bay, 8 p.m. (CBS)
Sat. 24 – St. Louis at Denver, 8 p.m. (CBS)
Sun. 25 – New Orleans at Houston, 4 p.m. (Fox)
Sun. 25 – Minnesota at San Francisco, 8 p.m. (NBC)

The Giants’ and Jets’ preseason schedules (dates still to be set):
Aug. 8-11 – Giants at Pittsburgh; Jets at Detroit
Aug. 15-19 – Indianapolis at Giants (Aug. 18); Jacksonville at Jets
Aug. 22-25 – Jets at Giants
Aug. 29-30 – Giants at New England; Philadelphia at Jets
Count on the Jets being televised by WCBS-2 and the Giants on WNBC-4.
