The NFL announced it’s preseason schedule today, with some exact dates and times still to be finalized.
The Green Bay Packers will start off with two road games and finish up with the final two games at home this year.
The Packers lead off with a trip to Tennessee to take on the Titans. In week two, the Packers travel to face the St. Louis Rams, as they did last season.
Week three has the Packers returning home to host the Oakland Raiders in a nationally televised game on August 22nd at 7pm. That game will potentially mark the return of former Packers James Jones and C.J. Wilson to Lambeau Field. The third preseason game is also most like a regular season game, as starters tend to see more game action than any of the other three contests.
The Packers will finish up at home against the Kansas City Chiefs on August 28th. The two teams were in Kansas City for last preseason’s finale.
This marks the fifth straight year that the Packers close out the preseason against the Chiefs. It also marks the third straight preseason that the Packers won’t face any of their regular season opponents.——————
