The Buffalo Bills will play the Washington Redskins and Pittsburgh Steelers in home preseason games this summer. The Bills will visit Minnesota and Detroit in their two road exhibition games. The NFL announced the preseason matchups today.
The exact dates for the games have yet to be finalized. Washington owns the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft and is expected to take quarterback Robert Griffin III of Baylor University. The game in Buffalo, to be played between Aug. 9 and 13, could be his exhibition debut, presuming the draft plays out as expected.
The Minnesota game will be played Aug. 16-20. The Steelers will visit Ralph Wilson Stadium the weekend of Aug. 23-26. Buffalo traditionally closes the preseason against the Lions. That exhibition finale at Detroit's Ford Field will be Aug. 29-30. The Bills were supposed to play an exhibition game in Toronto this summer, but that game was shifted back to Buffalo. The Bills still will play one regular-season home game in Toronto's Rogers Centre. The Bills do not face any of their exhibition opponents in the regular season.
