The New England Patriots announced their preseason opponents earlier this afternoon, giving fans a glimpse of how the Patriots exhibition season will shape up when they kick things off in the months ahead.

The team will open up on the road in Washington, followed by two home games against Philadelphia and Carolina before finishing on the road against the Giants.

No dates and times have been announced just yet.

As for the NFL Patriots regular season schedule, we’ll have to wait a bit for that as that will be announced later this spring.
