PRESEASON SCHEDULE coming your way today...less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet ReplyJim Irsay

The league is expected to release the schedule of preseason and nationally-televised preseason games today.

As for the regular-season schedule, there’s no set date for that to be released, but expect it fairly soon. Last year, it was released April 20. At least with the regular season, opponents, both at home and on the road, are already set.
