Redskins preseason schedule tentatively set
The NFL has released the order of the Redskins’ four preseason games, with exact dates and times to be determined.
Week 1 (Aug. 12-16) home vs. Buffalo Bills
Week 2 (Aug. 19-23) home vs. Baltimore Ravens
Week 3 (Aug. 26-30) at New York Jets
Week 4 (Sept. 2-3) at Arizona Cardinals
*None of the games is nationally televised. They’ll be shown locally on NBC 4 or Comcast SportsNet.
…What stands out to me is that the Redskins will visit the Jets in New Giants Stadium. That will help them get acclimated to their surroundings ahead of their regular-season clash there against the Giants. The Redskins are the Giants’ only NFC East division opponent that will play in the new stadium during the preseason.
