CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Heres a look at Fridays NFL preseason games. (All times EDT):EXTRA MVP TIME--New England at Carolina, 7:30 p.m.NFL MVP Cam Newton will see his most extensive playing time of the preseason against the Patriots, while Tom Brady may have to take a back seat to Jimmy Garoppolo.Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Newton and the rest of the starters from last years NFC championship team will play into the third quarter. Newton has played sparingly the first two preseason games, leading five drives culminating in one touchdown and two field goals.Not surprisingly, Patriots coach Bill Belichick hasnt disclosed his plans for Friday nights game, but its expected Garoppolo will start and see the majority of reps to get ready for the regular season. Brady is suspended for the first four games for his role in Deflategate.Like always, your guess is as good as mine, Garoppolo said. Well find out together, I guess. Im preparing like Im going to be the starter. You never know. Last week was a good example. You never know whats going to happen, and well go from there, I guess.Brady was scheduled to start the second preseason game against the Bears before accidently cutting his right thumb during a pregame mishap with scissors. He returned to the field this week after what he called a silly accident.`BIG TEST FOR WILLIAMS- Buffalo at Washington, 7:30 p.m.The Redskins third preseason game against the Bills will be the first for four-time Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams, who has been held out with a sore right knee. There hasnt been significant concern about Williams, who tends to play through minor injuries, but this chance is important to him.This game is really big for me because I havent had any live reps thus far, Williams said. Its going to be a huge test for me. Its just one of the things youve got to overcome.With Matt Jones out for the remainder of the preseason with a separated left shoulder, the Redskins will also get to see what they have in rookie running backs Robert Kelley and Keith Marshall and second-year back Mack Brown.WR Sammy Watkins is set to make his preseason debut for Buffalo after spending the past three weeks testing his surgically repaired left foot. Coach Rex Ryan anticipates Watkins will see limited playing time to continue re-establishing his chemistry with quarterback Tyrod Taylor.GET READY FOR BIG BEN--Pittsburgh at New Orleans, 8 p.m.The Saints have struggled in recent seasons on defense, but believe theyve improved from last year. Theyll get a big test in preseason Game No. 3 when they host Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers.Its a good team we are playing -- really good offensive football team, Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen said. Theyve got a lot of weapons; obviously, those guys havent played in the preseason. I dont know what the plan is as far as those guys are concerned. Obviously we have a lot of respect for the Steelers, Mike Tomlin and their offense. Todd Haley is your coordinator, so itll be a good challenge for us.GORDONs RETURN--Cleveland at Tampa Bay, 8 p.m.Wide receiver Josh Gordon is expected to make his return to action, along with first-round pick Corey Coleman. Gordon, who missed the first two preseason games with a quadriceps injury, led the NFL in yards receiving in 2013, but was suspended all of last season. He will serve a four-game suspension to start this season as well.The Bucs will face eight opponents this season who play a 3-4 defense, so playing the blitz-happy Browns is expected to be a good tuneup for Jameis Winston and the offense. The first of those eight 3-4 defensive teams will be the Cardinals in Week 2.Further complicating matters, the Bucs are battling injuries on the offensive line to guards J.R. Sweezy and Al Marpet.RODGERS MAKES A CAMEO--Green Bay at San Francisco, 10 p.m.Aaron Rodgers will make his one and only preseason appearance on Friday night at San Francisco. That will give Rodgers some experience working with new tight end Jared Cook. However, Jordy Nelson is not expected to play after returning to practice this week.Well, we havent had Jordy in a team period yet, so were just going to keep expectations at a reasonable level, Rodgers said of his standout wide receiver who is returning from major knee surgery.For the 49ers, Colin Kaepernick will get to make his case for the starting job after sitting out the first two preseason games with a tired shoulder. Coach Chip Kelly has said he wants to see Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert get time with the first-team offense before picking a starter. Gabbert has been unimpressive so far this preseason, completing just 52.6 percent of his passes, but he has not thrown an interception or taken a sack.Im going to go out and show everything I can these next two games to make sure I put my best foot forward to show this organization, this team, this coaching staff what Im capable of, Kaepernick said.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL .---AP Sports Writers John Wawrow, Stephen Whyno, Brett Martel, Kyle Hightower, Josh Dubow, and AP Freelance Writer Todd McMahon contributed.

For the first time in the history of the AP poll, the top three teams will play true road games against ranked foes. The some College Football Playoff contenders could fade and others could emerge. Theres a lot going on for mid-September.Five things to know for week three of the college football season.BEST GAMENo. 3 Florida State at No. 10 Louisville.ESPN GameDay makes it first trip to Louisville for what is the biggest regular-season home game the Cardinals have played since moving into the Atlantic Coast Conference.Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson has put up crazy numbers in two games, accounting for 13 touchdowns for the No. 1 offense in the country. The Seminoles present a very different challenge. Deondre Francois and Dalvin Cook showed against Mississippi in the opener that they can put up points in bunches, too.And Florida State is no Syracuse on defense. The Seminoles, though, are not without concerns on that side of the ball against Jackson and company. Florida State safety Derwin James (knee) is out. He is one of the best and most versatile players in the country. Against all that Jackson and Louisville coach Bobby Petrino can throw at a defense, James would have been used as counter-punch all over the field.HEISMAN WATCHA breakout game on the road, leading a relatively inexperienced offense at No. 14 Oklahoma could thrust Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett toward the front of the Heisman Trophy race. The junior has accounted for nine touchdowns against not-so-great competition so far for the third-ranked Buckeyes.Barrett tends to get mentioned after some of top headliners of the 2016 season, such as Deshaun Watson and Christian McCaffrey, when the Heisman is being discussed. He is not as flashy as Watson and Jackson, but he finished fourth in the Heisman voting in 2014 when he was the Big Ten player of the year.NUMBERS TO KNOW2 -- Consecutive wins by No. 19 Mississippi against No. 1 Alabama. The Rebels have neverr won three straight in the series.dddddddddddd. In fact, they had never won two straight before the last two seasons and have only 10 wins total in 63 meetings with the Crimson Tide.10-4 -- Nebraska coach Mike Rileys record against Oregon while he was Oregon State coach, including losses in the last seven Civil War rivalry games. The 22nd-ranked Ducks come to Lincoln, Nebraska, Saturday.9-3 -- Michigan States record in its last 12 games against ranked opponents, including wins in five of the last six. The 12th-ranked Spartans visit No. 18 Notre Dame.OFF THE RADARArmy visits UTEP trying to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 1996. The Cadets are playing under unusually difficult circumstances. Earlier this week, cornerback Brandon Jackson was killed in a car accident.The Black Knights decided to play to honor their late teammate. Services for Jackson will be held Monday in New York.COACH IN NEED OF A WINSouthern Californias Clay Helton against No. 7 Stanford. Helton is in his first season as Trojans coach after being promoted from interim head coach at the end of last season. Since getting the gig to lead the storied but adrift program, Helton is 1-3. This season started with a humiliating loss to Alabama, players getting ejected from each game and two players being suspended during a sexual assault investigation.A blowout of Utah State last week at the Los Angeles Coliseum, which was about one-third empty, provided temporary relief. Now a trip to the Farm to face a Stanford team that has won six of eight against the Trojans while replacing USC as the standard-bearer program of the Pac-12.Helton is probably not in danger of being fired after one season, but beating Stanford could help him hit the reset button on a dicey start to his tenure.----Follow Ralph D.
