Bengals: 4 surprise preseason roster cuts before Week 1
The Cincinnati Bengals have had a mix of good and bad times recently. However, the 2022 NFL season was a really good one for them. They even got to the AFC Championship game. Still, they couldn't quite win that game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Now, as the new season's practice games are happening, a few players are not doing as well as people hoped. La'el Collins, Jeff Gunter, Trent Taylor, and Jackson Carman are not standing out as they should be. This has made the fans and coaches unhappy.

2023 NFL preseason, Week 2: What We Learned from Commanders' win over Ravens on Monday night
One "fun" preseason win. On the strength of Joey Slye's right leg, the Commanders concluded the Ravens' NFL-record 24-game preseason winning streak.

Magic Johnson knows a thing or five about winning a world championship as a player, but one of the Commanders' newest owners couldn't help but get excited about Monday's triumph, posting that it was "a lot of fun for Commanders fans!" Fun isn't something Washington fans have been accustomed to anytime recently.

2023 NFL Preseason Debrief, Week 2: Top rookies? Who's winning position battles? MVP of August?!
A bunch of NFL teams drafted late-round rookie quarterbacks in April, hoping to find a backup of the future. The story of the preseason thus far is how many of these Day 3 picks have outplayed expectations and the veterans ahead of them, including the Raiders' Aidan O'Connell, Packers' Sean Clifford, Eagles' Tanner McKee and Browns' Dorian Thompson-Robinson. That doesn't even include Chicago undrafted D-II rookie Tyson Bagent, who has shown up strong, or Arizona fifth-rounder Clayton Tune, who may still be in a battle for the Week 1 starting job. The usual caveats apply here about the strength of competition and how much to draw from the preseason, but this group has played well enough to possibly change depth charts entering the season.
