    Falcons: Still CBS '13 (but using the college version now and a separate bug for CW69, it seems. Looks like they white-labeled things this year)
    Bills: Actually do have something new, odd that they'd drop the nearly-perfect thing they had last year.
    That team in the nation's capital, Broncos: Still NBC 2015/CSN
    Jaguars and Browns: Old Thursday Night Football/NFL Network
    Saints: Fox, again.
    Packers: NBC 2015. And it's the SNF version of the scoreboard too.
    Eagles: That glossy teal stuff again

    The old NFL on CBS look on WFOR, the one before CBS' current look.

    You're going to laugh but those look like a slight modification of the current generation EA Sports Madden graphics.

    Not the only one who noticed (oddly enough, Madden 16's UI seemed to be a knockoff of CBS's look)

    I don't see the EA look.

    I'd like to see a breakdown of which network had the most preemptions tonight?

    As a Dallas Cowboys fan I'm curious to see what graphics will look like this preseason or will it look the same as it's been for the past several years?

    KOCB in Oklahoma City is the Dallas Cowboys preseason television network affiliate

    Chiefs appear to have upgraded themselves to the current CBS graphics.

    Looks nicer without the redundant CBS logo on it in my opinion.

    Considering that they used to have Nantz and Simmons as the announcers on Madden (although I don't think they are anymore), I don't think that it's a coincidence.

    WCBS is now using the 2016 CBS Sports Graphics for Jets Preseason.

    On the other side of the coin, the Titans finally got new graphics too. Has a corner box and doesn't look like ancient CBS anymore.

    The Arizona Cardinals have gone NBC. They are using the college version of the current-generation NBC Sports graphics, a big upgrade for them. (Last year they used old NFL Network graphics.)



    Every single affiliate in the Cards' network this year is new. In 2016, KNXV, KWBA (Tucson) and KVVU (Las Vegas) were their affiliates. In 2017, that honor goes to KPNX, KMSB/KTTU (Tucson) and KSNV (Las Vegas).

    Elsewhere:

    LA Rams: It's Altitude. Please update your Roboto. I implore you.



    NY Jets: CBS NFL. It's good.



    KC Chiefs: The 1st down markers are old, but the current CBS package now has a home with the Chiefs and 65TPT Productions.



    Cincinnati Bengals: Last-gen ESPN, still awkward.

    NY Giants: Is this a network telecast?



    Cleveland Browns: It's bad. It's stale. Please help them.



    Buffalo Bills: Another new look, but at least it continues to be better than the average. (2016 was still better though)

    The last one actually looks like more last-gen NFL Network.

    May the best team win on the 25th. I may be a Seattle Seahawk fan, but I will always be a Dallas Cowboy fan at heart.

    Actually, no. It's a knock-off of ESPN's old "metal" graphics that first debuted on MNF in 2009 (then a few years later they switched to that one with the obnoxiously large grey and red bar, rather than use the refresh they put on college football and NBA)

    That NBC peacock shouldn't be changing color unless it's on first downs, timeouts, challenges, or touchdowns.

    Colts had some interesting-looking thing with a blocky font. Lions were just normal Fox.
