The NFL preseason is almost over, but we still have a full weekend of football to digest. Things started on Thursday night as the Kansas City Chiefs won in front of their home fans, 17-10, over the Green Bay Packers, and the Houston Texans blanked the San Francisco 49ers, 17-0.

Each of the NFL’s 32 teams will approach this week differently. Some will play their starters a little, some will play their starters more, and some not at all. In reality, this week is more about the reserves as coaching staffs around the league figure out who will make their 53-man roster.

Below, we’ll break down the highlights from all 16 preseason games. Keep this post bookmarked as it will be your one stop shop for everything you need to see.

To the surprise of some, the Texans’ starting quarterback took the field for the start of the second half. After two pedestrian first quarters in which he threw an interception, Mills led a six-play, 77-yard drive that ended with a touchdown — a 16-yarder to Chris Moore.

This is a nice bullet pass in the middle of the field. Houston has high hopes for its second-year signal-caller.

It’s the Bushman’s world, we’re just living in it

Matt Bushman is having a big night and he recorded 73 receiving yards on his first three catches. He scored his second touchdown of the game early in the third quarter on a play that looked like a turnaround waiting to happen.

The must-see interception

What at first appeared to be a great catch by the Texans turned into an interception by the 49ers in the blink of an eye. Credit to both defensive backs in this game for fighting for the ball. Samuel Womack III picked it off and then Tarvarius Moore kind of pulled it back inside.

Whose man was he?!

Chiefs tight end Matt Bushman ran a simple corner route, and it resulted in a 54-yard touchdown. The safety wasn’t looking his way and the cornerback thought he was giving the tight end to his teammate. This play will look ugly when the Chiefs review the film.

The Packers got off to a slow start Thursday night — going three-and-out on their first two possessions. Things started to click on their third drive, however, as Green Bay went 83 yards down the field in 11 plays to score the game’s first touchdown.

It was the undrafted rookie from Iowa who got into the end zone for the Packers. Check out this EXPLOSIVE run by Tyler Goodson covered by the spin move.

Texans’ Dameon Pierce continues hot start

Houston’s rookie has been one of the stars of the preseason. After an impressive Week 1 outing, Pierce did not play last weekend. Texans coach Lovie Smith said he kept Pierce out because they saw so much of him in the first preseason game. according to the Pro Football Networkwhich could mean he is the RB1.

Still, Pierce played Thursday night and in the Texans’ opener, he ran six times for 37 yards as Houston went 85 yards down the field in 11 plays and scored a touchdown. Who scored for Texas? I’ll give you a guess.

“Choir huddle” honors Len Dawson

Earlier this week, the legendary Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson has died aged 87. The former No. 5 overall pick was a Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl MVP, NFL Man of the Year and a Chiefs legend. To open Thursday night’s Chiefs preseason game, Patrick Mahomes took the field and lined up his offense in the famous “chorus formation” to honor Dawson.

After the delay of game penalty, which was declined by the Packers, Mahomes left the field.
