Bengals vs Giants on today? Time, TV schedule for 2019 NFL preseason If Daniel Jones felt that millions of eyes were on him when took the field for the Giants’ second drive of their preseason opener last week, he was right. And yet, there will be even more eyes on the rookie quarterback when he plays Friday night against the Giants.
One of the highlights of the Week 2 NFL preseason schedule is the Jones watch. Chances are he won’t play as well as he did on that one drive against the Jets, and he is not yet ready to truly threaten Eli Manning as New York’s starter. But Bears vs. Giants is the only national TV game on Friday night, opening a window for even more reaction to whatever the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft does.
Of course, Bears fans who tune into Friday night’s game care much less about Jones’ performance and much more about Chicago’s kicking competition. The battle between Eddie Pineiro and Elliott Fry (unfortunately) continues into Week 2 of the preseason.
The other position battle to watch in Chicago – David Montgomery vs. Mike Davis for the Bears’ starting running back role – will continue to evolve Friday in New York.
