Giants' 2017 preseason schedule announced

Dates and times for the 3 other preseason games will be announced when the entire National Football League regular season schedule is revealed next week.

Detroit wraps up the preseason by traveling to Buffalo to face the Bills.

Final dates and times will be announced over the next month.

Conversely, Tennessee and Carolina will meet for the second straight preseason. The Jets have won eight of the last nine preseason games vs Philly. - The Giants' preseason schedule this summer will include only AFC opponents for the fifth consecutive year, and will feature a nationally-televised Monday night game. Week 2 games will take place between August 17 and 21. I view preseason games as a chance to get players hurt so I'm glad once again there will be no fifth game. The two teams have met in the preseason every year since 2001 and traditionally in the finale.

The Patriots have practiced at The Greenbrier before, in 2015 with the New Orleans Saints, who utilized the resort site for their training camp for the past three seasons.

The Patriots, the defending Super Bowl champions, are the only 2016 playoff team among the Lions' preseason opponents.

Indianapolis will close out the preseason at home against the Cincinnati Bengals. This will mark the 13th consecutive year the Giants and Patriots have closed the preseason against each other. They trail in the preseason series, 25-22-1, with the tie coming in 1972. It is the first preseason meeting between the two teams since 1982.
