Redskins release 2018 preseason schedule

This is also the fourth time in the last five years that the Patriots will play Carolina in Week 3 of the preseason schedule.

The 49ers open week one of exhibition play in Levi's Stadium against running back Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys, who missed the playoffs last season despite massive preseason expectations. The only specific date for a game was August 30 against Tennessee, although kickoff time wasn't scheduled.

The game against the Cowboys will take place at some point between August 9 and 13th.

As for the Buccaneers' 2018 regular-season slate, and the National Football League schedule as a whole, it is expected to drop soon. Pittsburgh did cut some players prior to the roster deadline weekend last season.

Week 3 is a road game against the Vikings in Minnesota, and for the second year in a row, the Seahawks will play the Raiders in the final preseason game at home. It's also the first time since 2015 the Bills and Browns will play a preseason contest.

"The Washington game, set for Thursday night, August 16, will be the Jets" first national preseason game since 2012, when their home game against Carolina was televised by NBC.

Houston has faced Kansas City three previous times in the preseason.

Here's a look at the NFL's complete preseason schedule.

Then with the Jets set to choose third overall in the upcoming NFL Draft right after the Giants select second, both teams' top picks and draft classes will be on display in this one. But the home preseason finale against the Cleveland Browns re-kindles the "Great Lakes Classic" matchup that the two teams played for 13 years. In 2017, Denver finished with a ideal 4-0 preseason record. That was the only preseason meeting between the teams. The Lions and Raiders have met only seven times in the preseason, with Oakland winning the most recent matchup 27-26 in 2014.
