The 2017 NFL preseason is finally upon us. Here is the full slate of games the New York Jets are ready to play in this summer.

Can you hear it? That’s the sound of preseason football finally upon us. Of course, we got a small glimpse of it from the Pro Football Hall of Fame game but in the grand scheme of things, we’re all ready to see how the New York Jets look against real competition against opposing teams.

The regular season is only a few weeks away but everyone knows for the most part what awaits the Jets. They lack talent across the entire roster besides their defensive line as the hope is younger players will step up and continue the rebuilding process.

The Jets purged their roster all offseason long to not only give these younger players more opportunities to shine but to also bank some salary cap space for next year. But for now, it all starts with coaching, training, and development.

Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, take a look below for their official preseason schedule. Keep in mind these are in Eastern Time:

Week 1: vs. Tennessee Titans (Sat, Aug 12 at 7:30 p.m.)Week 2: @ Detroit Lions (Sat, Aug 19 at 7:30 p.m.)Week 3: @ New York Giants (Sat, Aug 26 at 7:00 p.m.)Week 4: vs. Philadelphia Eagles (Thu, Aug 31 at 7:00 p.m.)

It will be interesting to see how the Week 1 matchup against the Titans goes since former wide receiver Eric Decker will more than likely get a rep or two against his old team. Of course, the famous “Snoopy Bowl” will be what most native New Yorkers get excited for, especially since there are bragging rights and the ongoing saga between Sheldon Richardson and Brandon Marshall.
