CBS Sports sets 2011 NFL Preseason broadcast schedule


Lockout? What lockout? CBS Sports is going ahead with preparations for the next NFL season as if the labor strife is sure to be resolved long before the first kick-off. That may be a good bet.

The preseason schedule for “The NFL on CBS” begins Friday, August 26th (8:00 pm ET) when the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers take on the Indianapolis Colts live in primetime on the CBS Television Network.

CBS concludes its two-game preseason schedule the following night as the New England Patriots play the Detroit Lions live in primetime on Saturday, August 27th (8:00 pm ET).
