To minimize travel on the final week and because I believe you never play pre-season vs. division foes.

I thought it was also because Belichick still has friends in the NYG offices from his time there. But I'm sure the travel factor has a lot to do with it.

On a related note, I heard that the league stepped in and took more control over preseason scheduling a few years ago because the Raiders and Chargers snuck in a game against each other. (The Raiders also played the Cowpokes twice that preseason - another no-no.)

They don't like traveling far for preseason games. That's why you see them pretty much playing the same teams year-in/year-out.
