The Baltimore Ravens announced their preseason schedule Monday, with the slate featuring home games against the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills. Baltimore will also play the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints on the road.
The Ravens open the 2017 campaign at M&T Bank Stadium when they host Washington on Thursday, Aug. 10. This marks Baltimore’s 10th preseason game against the Redskins in a series the Ravens lead, 6-3.
Baltimore then travels to Miami in Week 2 of preseason play, with the game’s exact date still to be determined. The Ravens and Dolphins have never faced each other in the preseason.
The Ravens return home to host Buffalo for either a Friday or Saturday (Aug. 25-26) game in Week 3. This contest marks the fourth preseason meeting between the teams in a series that the Bills hold a 2-1 edge.
Baltimore closes out its preseason schedule on Thursday, Aug. 31 at New Orleans. The Ravens have battled the Saints four times in preseason play, with Baltimore winning each contest, including last year’s 23-14 victory at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. This also marks the fourth-consecutive season Baltimore will play New Orleans in the preseason.
The Ravens are 51-32 all time in preseason play. Under head coach John Harbaugh (2008-16), Baltimore has compiled a 24-12 record during the preseason.
