49ers announce preseason schedule

49ers announce preseason schedule

Shurmur and the Giants likely will work towards organization joint practices this summer, but announce them as well as the opponents at a later date.

The NFL is expected to release the 2018 regular season schedule later this month.

The Bengals had a 7-9 record in 2017, finishing in third place in the AFC North.

- New Redskins quarterback Alex Smith will come to town in Week 1.

The Redskins will make their FedEx Field debut a week later against the Jets. The team's work during training camp will be put on display against the Packers.

The Buccaneers have played the Dolphins almost twice as often as their next most frequent preseason opponent, which is unsurprising given their proximity and the relatively rarity of regular-season meetings between the two. Well, it's a reason to tune in.

The Cowboys return to AT&T Stadium for a Week 2 matchup vs Cincinnati and a Week 3 game against Arizona. Need I say more? Nick Foles was named MVP after throwing for 373 yards with four total touchdowns (one receiving). Of course this won't all be about the quarterbacks.

For just the second time in the last 22 years, the Broncos will begin the preseason at home when they host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1 (Aug. 9-12).

The Buccaneers game will air at 8 p.m. August 24 on CBS.

Why to watch: Talk about a good measuring stick game.

The preseason highlight will be a Week 3 prime-time game on the road against the Dallas Cowboys. It's when starters usually see the most action of the preseason.

It leads to questions about whether the Rams will spend extra time on the East Coast practicing against another team.

The date and time for the first two games is yet to be determined.

The Frank Reich era in Indianapolis will get started on the road - at least in preseason play. That's always helpful for the regular season. And heck, what else would you be doing on the last Thursday night in August?
