The league announced the 2013 PreSeason Schedule on Thursday, with Patriots fans learning where they’ll see the team during the exhibition season for the upcoming year.

New England will open up on the road during Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles, followed by a home contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a Friday night nationally televised game on August 16th at 8pm.

From there they’ll travel to Detroit for a game against the Lions, before closing out the following week at home against the New York Giants.

Only one of the Patriots games currently has an actual set date and time, with that one being their Week 2 match-up against the Buccaneers.  According to the league’s release the rest of the dates and times are still to be determined.
