Sixteen games are set to be played this week, starting with 11 on Thursday night, two of which will be broadcast live on NFL Network. We haven't seen him in a game since 2017, so the preseason opener could be a good refresher for viewers (though coach Adam Gase recently said he isn't sure how much Bell will play in August). He started 15 games in 2017 when Luck missed the entire season, so this isn't anything new for the former third-round pick. Luck doesn't seem concerned about missing regular-season games, but it will ease some minds in Indy if they see Brissett is a capable fill-in.Bills: Running back competitionThe Bills have a slew of running backs hoping to steal carries from LeSean McCoy, including rookie Devin Singletary, T.J. Yeldon and Frank Gore (yes, he's still playing). Preseason is the perfect time to hash this out.Jaguars: John DeFilippo-Nick Foles reunionDeFilippo, the Jags' new offensive coordinator, was praised for his work as Foles' quarterbacks coach in Philly. But DeFilippo is known for being pass-happy, so keep a close eye on Jacksonville's offensive play-calls.Ravens: Lamar Jackson's runningLast season, Jackson had a quarterback-record 147 rushing attempts despite not starting until Week 11. The first preseason game won't answer all of our questions, but it could give a glimpse into what we'll see come Week 1.Titans: Left tackle playTaylor Lewan is facing a four-game suspension, so Dennis Kelly could protect Marcus Mariota's blind side for the first quarter of the season. How well he holds up could make or break the Titans' season, especially in a competitive division with two playoff teams (Colts, Texans) and another less than two years removed from the AFC Championship Game (Jaguars).Eagles: Running back competitionAt this point, it seems like rookie Miles Sanders will win the job. nfl.videoplayers[srcId] = vp = new Y.NFL.Video.Player({ flashAdTag: "http://pubads.g.doubleclick.net/gampad/ads?sz=640x360&iu=/4595/nfl.news/story&ciu_szs=300x250&impl=s&gdfp_req=1&env=vp&output=vast&unviewed_position_start=1&cust_params=slot%3Dvideo%26url%3Dstory%26prtnr%3Daround-the-league%26team%3Dmia%26team%3Dhou%26team%3Dbuf%26team%3Djax%26team%3Dphi%26team%3Dchi%26team%3Datl%26team%3Dcar%26team%3Dden%26team%3Darz%26team%3Dbal%26team%3Dind%26team%3Dwas%26team%3Dsea%26team%3Dclv%26team%3Ddet%26team%3Dten%26conf%3Dafc%26conf%3Dnfc%26dvsn%3Dace%26dvsn%3Dacs%26dvsn%3Dnce%26dvsn%3Dncn%26dvsn%3Dncs%26dvsn%3Dacw%26dvsn%3Dncw%26dvsn%3Dacn%26plyr%3Ddaniel_amendola%26plyr%3Dmatthew_ryan%26plyr%3Djoseph_flacco%26s1%3Dstory&url=[referrer_url]&description_url=www.nfl.com&correlator=[timestamp]" html5AdTag: "http://pubads.g.doubleclick.net/gampad/ads?sz=640x360&iu=/4595/nfl.news/story&ciu_szs=300x250&impl=s&gdfp_req=1&env=vp&output=vast&unviewed_position_start=1&cust_params=slot%3Dvideo%26url%3Dstory%26prtnr%3Daround-the-league%26team%3Dmia%26team%3Dhou%26team%3Dbuf%26team%3Djax%26team%3Dphi%26team%3Dchi%26team%3Datl%26team%3Dcar%26team%3Dden%26team%3Darz%26team%3Dbal%26team%3Dind%26team%3Dwas%26team%3Dsea%26team%3Dclv%26team%3Ddet%26team%3Dten%26conf%3Dafc%26conf%3Dnfc%26dvsn%3Dace%26dvsn%3Dacs%26dvsn%3Dnce%26dvsn%3Dncn%26dvsn%3Dncs%26dvsn%3Dacw%26dvsn%3Dncw%26dvsn%3Dacn%26plyr%3Ddaniel_amendola%26plyr%3Dmatthew_ryan%26plyr%3Djoseph_flacco%26s1%3Dstory&url=[referrer_url]&description_url=www.nfl.com&correlator=[timestamp];ord=" + nfl.constants.AD_RANDOM + "?"

The Seahawks need Penny to show something in these preseason games after using a valuable first-round pick on him in 2018 -- especially with running backs picked behind him starting to shine (Sony Michel, Nick Chubb, Kerryon Johnson).Chargers: Offensive lineIn July, the Chargers' offensive line was ranked 29th by Pro Football Focus -- and that was before knowing Russell Okung could miss six games with a pulmonary embolism. These guys have to step up if the Chargers expect to make a deep playoff run, and it all starts in the preseason.Cardinals: Kliff KingsburyKyler Murray is the obvious answer here, but the new coach's offense will play the entire game and Murray won't, so I gave Kingsbury the edge.
