The Washington Redskins will open their 2012 preseason with back-to-back road games and then play the final two exhibition games at FedEx Field.
The team on Wednesday released their slate for the preseason, announcing their opener at Buffalo. The Redskins will then play at Chicago.
The final two preseason games will come against the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, both at home.
The specific dates and times for each matchup has yet to be determined.
The Week 3 preseason matchup - which usually serves as the dress rehearsal for the regular season opener - is expected to feature a face-off between quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, who project to go first and second overall, respectively, in this month’s NFL Draft.
The date with Tampa Bay will mark new secondary coach Raheem Morris’ first meeting against the team for which he served as head coach before his firing in January.
