The Washington Redskins will open the preseason at home against the New England Patriots, the NFL announced Wednesday afternoon.

The Redskins will then host the Cleveland Browns on “Monday Night Football,” Aug. 18. That game will represent a meeting with former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.

The final two preseason games take place on the road, at Baltimore and Tampa Bay.

Dates and times for the first, third and fourth games have yet to be determined.

The Redskins went undefeated in the preseason last year before going 3-13 in the regular season.
