Preseason NFL debuts on the GridCard this week, but don't look for the starters to play much. Most teams wait till Week 3 of the preseason for a full dress rehearsal, and even then, backups take over in the second half. Then in Week 4, the starters often go just one series--if they play at all--so that coaches can make depth and roster decisions.
At least it's NFL football.
But for now, MLB continues to dominate the GridCard, including key divisional matchups with the Mariners @ Astros and the Athletics @ Angels. The Second Game features more interleague matchups, two Red Sox @ Phillies games and another Mets @ Yankees Subway Series clash.
The Michigan International Speedway welcomes NASCAR on Sunday for the Consumers Energy 400, and the First Game concludes with one of golf's four majors, the PGA Championship.
