The NFL has finalized the 2023 preseason schedule. Here are all the details on the Indianapolis Colts three preseason games and how to watch on TV.

As the 2023 NFL season approaches, the NFL recently finalized the TV schedule for the preseason. Before the 17-game regular season, the Indianapolis Colts will play three total regular seasons. With a new head coach, a rookie quarterback, and a lot of other young players making their transition to the pro game, the preseason will be important for Indianapolis.

Who do the Colts play in the preseason?

Indianapolis will play the Buffalo Bills in Week 1 of the preseason, the Chicago Bears in the second week, and Indy will finish the preseason against the Philadelphia Eagles. Colts will play two of their preseason games on the road, traveling to play the Bills and the Eagles, but they will host the Bears. Here’s a more detailed look at the preseason schedule.

Colts 2023 preseason schedule

• at Bills, Saturday, August 12, 1:00 pm ET
• vs. Bears, Saturday, August 19, 7:00 pm ET
• at Eagles, Thursday, August 24, 8:00 pm ET

Will Colts preseason games be on TV?

All three games will be aired locally, but the games against the Bears and the Eagles will be aired nationally. Indy’s games against Chicago will be live on NFL Network, and the game against the Philadelphia Eagles will be streamed on Amazon Prime Video.

Will the Colts have any joint practices?

Teams usually practice together ahead of preseason games and this year will be no different. It has already been reported that Indianapolis will be having joint practices with the Chicago Bears and with the Philadelphia Eagles. Of course, there’s a coaching connect with both teams.

Chicago’s head coach, Matt Eberflus, was the defensive coordinator for Indianapolis before taking the job, and Shane Steichen, Indy’s head coach, was the offensive coordinator for the Eagles before joining the Colts. Philly’s head coach Nick Sirianni was also the offensive coordinator in Indy before he went to the Eagles. Now, all these paths will cross again as each team prepares in the preseason.
