New England Patriots 2018 Preseason Schedule AnnouncedSteve Balestrieri - PatsFans.com

The NFL announced the 2018 preseason schedule earlier today and the Patriots preseason slate has several familiar foes.

The Pats will be at home for their first two weeks of the preseason against the Washington Redskins and then against the Philadelphia Eagles in a rematch of the two Super Bowl teams in Week 2. They then travel to Carolina in Week 3.  And it wouldn’t be preseason with finishing off with the New York Giants in Week 4 at the Meadowlands. The exact dates and times will be announced at a later date.

According to the Patriots website, their three most frequent preseason opponents in franchise history are the Giants (27), Eagles (22) and Redskins (21).

The Patriots held joint practices together at their training camp location in the 2014 summer before the regular season. The Patriots hosted the Philadelphia Eagles for joint practices also during 2014 in front of huge crowds on the Gillette practice fields.

It will be the fourth time in five years, they’ve met Philadelphia in the preseason’s Week 3 and the 14 years in a row that the Patriots and Giants finish their preseason slate playing one another.

We’ll post the dates of the games as soon as they become available. Now the countdown begins for minicamp and of course training camp.
