I hear NFL is afraid of @plenzmd1 driving a fertilizer truck to NFL HQ so are making some changes.

The second week of preseason games is scheduled for Aug. 27-31. Some re-shuffling of the original preseason schedule for Weeks 2 and 3 are underway, as each team will play one home game and one on the road.

I'm curious how much starters will actually play now that it's only 2 games.

Maybe the 1st half of each game? I think the offense may play more than the defense.

Makes sense since they will need time to gel. Though I do hope our rookie DE gets a lot of time to play.

The guidelines exist "at the time of publication" right now, but are subject to change.

From the text..this is meant for baseball right now

yup.  They mentioned dropping 2 games some time ago.   
 

the Bills Ravens game was said to be dropped and I forgot the other. 
 

At that time it was 1 home 1 away I believe

Not a good sign at all. Smart the league is already taking this step but this may turn into the last man standing. Maybe they should hand out participation trophies now.
