Excitement is building ahead of the 2021 NFL season with preseason preparations slowly beginning to ramp up.

Following the 2021 NFL Draft, all eyes will be on the rookies this summer as five new quarterbacks look set to make their debuts.

The unconventional nature of the 2020 season meant that fans weren’t able to enjoy the lead-up to the campaign, however, traditional preseason football is back and supporters can now enjoy the chance to watch their team’s young players get opportunities to impress.

It is always an exciting time for football fans and there will be ample opportunities to catch the preseason action on TV or via a streaming site. Fans can also enjoy wagering on the preseason action with the majority of matches priced up by the most popular NFL betting sites including Sports Interaction and Betway. Some franchises have teamed up with popular gaming sites ahead of the new season including the Jacksonville Jaguars who have partnered with ThriveFantasy. They will provide team-focused props throughout the course of the season and this is likely to be extremely popular with fans who enjoy wagering on their local team.

Preseason has been shortened to three weeks in order to accommodate a 17th regular-season game, however, there are still 49 matches set to take place throughout this period. Despite only five of these matches being staged in a prime-time slot, there are still plenty of chances to catch the majority of these NFL exhibition match-ups.

With fans being allowed to return to the stadium for preseason, we can expect some terrific atmospheres throughout this period. On Saturday 14th August, fans will be permitted to watch the Los Angeles Chargers take on the Rams at the SoFi Stadium whilst the Allegiant Stadium will also host preseason football on the same night.
