NFL Network pre-season broadcasting schedule

Hat tip to Daily Norseman for finding the full NFL Network pre-season broadcasting schedule. Per NFL.com:

First-ever live preseason doubleheaders ...

During the 2007 NFL preseason, NFL Network televises 52 games -- all but the 13 televised nationally by the NFL's other network partners (CBS, ESPN, FOX & NBC).

NFL Network carries a record eight games live, including a pair of live preseason doubleheaders -- an NFL preseason first -- on Saturday, Aug. 25 and Thursday, Aug. 30 with 7 p.m. ET and 10 p.m. ET kickoffs.

NFL Network produces two of the eight live games -- the Hall of Fame Game (New Orleans vs. Pittsburgh) and Washington at Tennessee on Aug. 11 -- while simulcasting the others.

Also of note, for their simulcast games the NFL Network will play the first half with one team's announcers, and the second half with the other. We've got one of the live games as well:
Washington at Tennessee
(Saturday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. ET)
Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs makes his first trip to Tennessee where quarterback Vince Young opens the season as the Titans starter after winning six of his final seven starts, AP Offensive Rookie of the Year honors, and becoming the first rookie QB to play in a Pro Bowl.
Full Redskins schedule:
WEEK 1
Saturday, August 11
6. Washington at Tennessee (LIVE)  8 p.m.

WEEK 2
Sunday, August 19
21. Pittsburgh at Washington  2 p.m.

WEEK 3
Sunday, August 26
31. Baltimore at Washington  8 a.m.

WEEK 4
Saturday, September 1
44. Washington at Jacksonville  8 a.m.

Not crazy about the 8 a.m. games, but at this point I'm just thrilled to be so close to the NFL season that I'd watch if they were at 1 a.m. (like the Minnesota vs. Seattle game in Week 3?).
