The 2014 Washington Redskins Preseason schedule has been released. Here it is:
Week 1 – home vs. New England Patriots
Week 2 – home vs. Cleveland Browns (Monday, Aug. 18th, 8:00 pm)
Week 3 – at Baltimore Ravens
Week 4 – at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Thursday, Aug. 28th)
The Redskins preseason opens with a visit from Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Hopefully quarterback Robert Griffin III will get to match up against him for a series or two. And unlike last season when RGIII did not play at all in the preseason, he may get a little more work in this time.
Also, Redskins fans should get their first look at high profile free agent acquisitions DeSean Jackson and Jason Hatcher. In week 2, the Cleveland Browns come to D.C., and they will more than likely have a rookie quarterback on display, which could be Johnny Manziel, or Teddy Bridgewater. It will be interesting to see.
In week 3 the Redskins travel to nearby Baltimore and continue their rivalry with the Ravens. And in week 4, Jay Gruden returns to his old stomping grounds in Tampa, Florida, where coached as an assistant. But this time it will be as head coach of the Washington Redskins.
