Watch Kaep vs. the Broncos defense Thursday.

Baltimore @ Tampa Bay, 7:30 PM ET

What to watch for: Ray Rice/Doug Martin Comparison

Many skeptics have dubbed Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin as the next Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice. They have similar sizes and running styles, and it will be evident tonight.

Cincinnati @ Atlanta, 8:00 PM ET

What to watch for: Cincinnati’s defensive line

This season, the Cincinnati Bengals are poised to break out. They have a stingy defense, and it starts with their defensive line. DE’s Michael Johnson and Carlos Dunlap seal the edges, while DT’s Domata Peka and Geno Atkins hold down the interior.

St. Louis @ Cleveland, 8:00 PM ET

What to watch for: St. Louis running backs

The St. Louis Rams running back situation may be a RBBC situation. They have no clear-cut starter at that position, and the preseason will help dictate who receives the starting nod, or if it indeed will be RBBC.

Washington @ Tennessee, 8:00 PM ET

What to watch for: Chris Johnson

Ever since Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson surpassed 2000 single season rushing yards in 2009, Johnson has been lackadaisical. The Titans need him to regain his ’09 magic, or his tenure with Tennessee may be over following 2013.

Denver @ San Francisco, 9:00 PM ET

What to watch for: Everything

This game is called the “Super Bowl preview” by many. It may or may not end up that way, but this certainly is a game to tune in to because of the slight possibility.

Seattle @ San Diego, 10:00 PM ET

What to watch for: Christine Michael vs. Robert Turbin

This is the Seattle Seahawks’ battle for second string running back. Turbin, a second year player, is squaring off against the rookie Michael.
