NFL Preseason 2015: Game times, TV schedule, online streaming for Thursday and Friday

Week 2 of the 2015 NFL preseason continues with four games on Thursday and Friday.

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL preseason continues this week with several intriguing Week 2 matchups.

Thursday Night

The fun begins on Thursday night with the Buffalo Bills facing the Cleveland Browns on a special edition of Monday Night Football on ESPN. This will be an important game for the Bills as they're still trying to figure out who their starting QB will be this year.

Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor, EJ Manuel, and Matt Simms are all in contention for the job, though Taylor is reportedly getting the start for this game. Another QB looking to make his mark is Johnny Manziel, who figures to play a ton in this game now that third-stringer Connor Shaw is out for the year with a thumb injury.

Also facing off Thursday night will be Washington and the Detroit Lions at FedExField. One of the biggest stories of the preseason has been Lions rookie running back Ameer Abdullah. The former Nebraska back rushed six time for 67 yards (9.6 average), including a spectacular 45-yard scamper, in a win over the New York Jets in the first week of the preseason.

Friday Night

The action continues with two more games on Friday night, the bigger of the two being the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Seattle Seahawks on the NFL Network. Seattle is coming off another Super Bowl appearance while Kansas City is coming off back-to-back winning seasons. The two met in the 2014 regular season when the Chiefs squeaked out a close win.

Also on Friday, the Jets host the Atlanta Falcons. There's not much to say here other than we've got two teams looking to rebound from poor showings in 2013 and 2014. Atlanta looks promising this preseason with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones still being one of the NFL's best QB-to-WR tandems.

If you want to watch games online in Ohio, you'll have to use NFL Game Pass, which is $99.99 for the season with a free 7-day trial. You used to be able to buy NFL Preseason Live for $20 and watch every preseason game. However, this year the NFL has combined NFL Preseason Live and NFL Game Rewind to form NFL Game Pass.

This includes all NFL Preseason live streams, but only replays of the regular season games; it is available on iPhone, iPadAndroidWindows and will come to Xbox, and Apple TV.

Here's a look at how to watch this week's game on TV or online.
