It's never too early to be looking forward to the 2013 NFL season.  It probably is always too early to be looking forward to the 2013 NFL preseason, but alas, the NFL has released the schedule and so I now forward it to you.  At least the NFL and the networks are sparing us the abomination of the fourth week of preseason from national television.  Thank you Jesus.  The games begin in Canton on August 4th with the Hall of Fame Game between the Cowboys and Dolphins. Sunday August 4 NFL Hall of Fame Game - Canton, Ohio Dallas Cowboys vs Miami Dolphins (NBC 8 PM) Preseason Week 1 Thursday August 8 Cincinnati Bengals at Atlanta Falcons (ESPN 8 PM) Preseason Week 2 Thursday August 15 San Diego Chargers at Chicago Bears (ESPN 8 PM) Friday August 16 Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New England Patriots (Fox 8 PM) Sunday August 18 Indianapolis Colts at NY Giants (Fox 8 PM) Monday August 19 Pittsburgh Steelers at Washington Redskins (ESPN 8 PM) Preseason Week 3 Thursday August 22 Carolina Panthers at Baltimore Ravens (ESPN 8 PM) Friday August 23 Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers (CBS 8 PM) Saturday August 24 St. Louis Rams at Denver Broncos (CBS 8 PM) Sunday August 25 New Orleans Saints at Houston Texans (Fox 4 PM) Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers (NBC 8 PM)
