The opponents for and weekends of the Redskins' preseason schedule have been released.
Aug. 3 -- Hall of Fame game against Indianapolis in Canton, Ohio
Aug. 7-10 -- vs. Buffalo
Aug. 14-17 -- at New York Jets
Aug. 21-24 -- at Carolina
Aug. 28 -- vs. Jacksonville
The HOF game will be on NBC at 8:00 PM and the Jacksonville game also will be on NBC at 7:00 PM. The other exact dates and times will be announced in the next few weeks.
Absent from the schedule are the Baltimore Ravens. They have been playing the Redskins during the preseason for the past several years. The teams are playing during the regular season and perhaps that is why they skipped their meeting this year.
Five preseason games is about three too many.
