    Default Colts to face Redskins in preseason

    REDSKINS ANNOUNCE 2012 PRESEASON SCHEDULE

    ASHBURN, Va. – The National Football League announced its 2012 preseason schedule today, and the Washington Redskins’ four-game slate begins with road contests against the Buffalo Bills and Chicago Bears in Weeks 1 and 2 and finishes with home games against the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Weeks 3 and 4. Specific dates and times for all games will be determined at a later date.
    ...
    The meeting between the Redskins and Bills will be the 16th between the teams in preseason play all-time. The Redskins hold an 8-5 advantage in the preseason series with the Bills, having last faced them in Week 1 of the 2010 preseason. That game was Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan’s first preseason game with Washington, resulting in a 42-17 Redskins’ victory.

    The Redskins face the Bears in Week 2 in the teams’ first preseason meeting since 1976. The Redskins are 4-7 against the Bears all-time in preseason play. The last Redskins’ preseason victory against the Bears came on Sept. 9, 1973, when the Redskins defeated the Bears, 17-3.

    Washington’s preseason home opener at FedExField is scheduled for Week 3, when the Redskins will face the Colts in the preseason for a team-record-setting 21st time in preseason play. With a 16-3 preseason win in Indianapolis last season, the preseason record between the Redskins and Colts stands even at 10-10. The game will feature the two teams currently holding the first two picks in the 2012 NFL Draft.

    Maybe we'll stop sucking in preseason?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Cool, if I get a cheap ticket I will go. Knowing Dan Snyder though it probably costs $150 to get in to a preseason game standing room only!

    I think it being the pre-season opener we might see a few plays to at most a quarter from both QB's with an emphasis on the running game then it will be time for the back-up players to get their time in. No one wants to see either franchise lose their QB to a freak accident in the first preseason game.

    Didnt something like that happen a few years ago to a rookie or 2nd year QB. I forget which team it was.

    I'll be in attendance, making sure A. Luck knows he has a fan in the building.

    Stubhub - you can easily get good seats for 40-50 dollars for the lower bowl.

    Park down at the church - cash parking was either $10 or $20 last year for the one game I went to (Dallas)

    That said, I still hate giving Snyder a penny of my money.
