For Immediate Release                                                                                  

April 10, 2017




LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The National Football League announced its 2017 preseason schedule today, and the Washington Redskins’ four-game slate features their preseason debut on the road against the Baltimore Ravens, their preseason home opener against the Green Bay Packers, a nationally televised home tilt against the Cincinnati Bengals and a road finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


Three of the four games (at Baltimore, vs. Green Bay and at Tampa Bay) will be shown locally on NBC4 and Comcast SportsNet. Specific times for these games will be determined at a later date. The team’s third preseason game against Cincinnati will kick off in front of a nationally televised audience on FOX at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 27.


All four games can be heard on the Redskins Radio Network, including on ESPN 980 and WMAL (105.9 FM/630 AM) in the Washington, D.C. metro area.


The Redskins’ preseason opener against the Ravens will take place at M&T Bank Stadium, the site of Washington’s 16-10 victory against Baltimore in Week 5 last season. The Redskins also won the teams’ last preseason meeting, a 31-13 victory in the 2015 preseason.


The Redskins will make their FedExField preseason debut the following week against the Packers. The Redskins dealt the Packers a 42-24 defeat on Sunday Night Football in Week 11 last season. The game will be the teams’ first preseason meeting since 1995.


The following week, the Redskins and Bengals will face one another in preseason competition for the ninth time since 1970. The game will be a rematch of the teams’ contest at London’s Wembley Stadium in Week 8 last season, a game in which the teams played to a 27-27 draw. 


The Redskins will conclude the preseason in Tampa on Thursday, Aug. 31. This will mark the sixth time in the last seven years that Washington and Tampa Bay have closed the preseason against one another. Last year, the Redskins rushed for 245 yards in a 20-13 victory in their 2016 finale at Tampa Bay.

Good home games against recent playoff teams, and ones where the starters should play either a quarter (against GB) or a half (against Cincy).


Another 4:30 preseason start. Did we have late afternoon preseason games at home in both 2012 and 2013 (both Saturday games, IIRC)?

Yep, 2012 we faced the colts at FedEx on a Saturday, and 2013 I believe we faced the Bills August 24th, we won 30-7. Pat White played a great game that afternoon.

Hmmm, so who do we target for joint off-season practices?  Tampa is on the East coast.  Obvious ties to our organization...

Yeah but we play IN Tampa week 4. Plus, I believe training camp is done by the week 3 game. So, Tampa is a no-go. Perhaps the packers travel to Richmond for a joint practice prior to our home opener against them? 


Or its possible the Ravens could take a few days in Richmond before the week 1 battle of the beltways matchup. 


Complete guesses by the way :P

.....looking forward to the Packers game and hoping for a joint Packers/Skins practice in Richmond (never thought I would find myself looking forward to a preseason game).

Would have liked that game against TB to be in DC. I don't usually care about the hurt feelings thing, but whether or not you agree with the FO showing Baker and DJax the door, it would have been nice for them to come back here and get some love.
