Ravens Release 2017 Preseason Schedule


The Ravens will have a couple trips down south this summer before the start of the regular season.

The NFL announced the preseason schedule Monday afternoon, and here's who the Ravens will face:

Week 1 (Thursday, Aug. 10):Washington Redskins, M&T Bank Stadium

Week 2 (Aug. 18-19):Miami Dolphins, Hard Rock Stadium*

Week 3 (Aug. 25-26):Buffalo Bills, M&T Bank Stadium*

Week 4 (Thursday, Aug. 31):New Orleans, Mercedes-Benz Superdome * * * *

*The exact dates and times for the matchups with Miami and Buffalo still need to be finalized.

Baltimore's preseason schedule features the standard matchup with the nearby Redskins, as well as a pair of trips to desirable locations. Fans looking to combine a Ravens game into a trip to Miami or New Orleans can book travel and ticket packages through Primesport.

The Ravens have played plenty of games in Miami in recent years, but this is the first time they'll face the Dolphins in the preseason. Getting the Dolphins on the preseason docket is a little surprising because the teams will see each other again in the regular season. The regular-season game will be in Baltimore.

The matchup with the Saints brings the Ravens back to the nostalgic Superdome where they hoisted the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl XLVII. Only a handful of players remain from that championship team, but New Orleans is still synonymous with the Super Bowl for many Ravens fans.

This will be the third year in a row the Ravens have faced the Saints during the preseason.

Another noteworthy item is the Ravens get to host the third preseason game, which is the last real dress rehearsal for the regular season where the starters often play into the second half. The Ravens will get a good test against Buffalo and quarterback Tyrod Taylor before going into the regular season.

The Ravens already know who they will play in the regular season, but the dates and times of those games have not yet been released. The full schedule typically comes out in mid-April before the NFL Draft.
