NFL PreSeason taking page from College Boys?

How bad is NFL wanting you to watch games? College has been notorious for getting rolling with multiple night games, kind of like feeding the starving fan. I know its preseason, but to start it off NFL gives us starting Wednesday 5 FIVE nights in a row of preseason football.

First college games are on 26th, but it gets rolling with college giving us 5 FIVE nights in a row of college football starting Thursday Aug 31.

Im waiting for NFL to do what college basketball does to kick it off, 24 straight hours.

Maybe it's something they're trying to do to offset low ratings from last year (not sure when preseason schedules are set.)
I like the NFL, but I'm sure I'll hit a saturation point after a few weeks of watching mid-week games; too much product. On the other hand, I never tire of the mid-week college action, I always look forward to some MACtion.

I never tire of midweek college games either, love them, rarely watch midweek NFL game outside of MNF.

Wednesday game was due to a conflict with PGA. What's originally scheduled for Thursday.
