Falcons preseason slate announced
The Falcons announced their preseason matchups yesterday, with the team set to face the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Miami Dolphins, and Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Falcons and Ravens have been a regular matchup over the years, meeting in seven of the past nine preseasons. The two teams are set to clash in the Georgia Dome on the opening week of preseason. The following week on August 16, the Falcons will host the Bengals which will air on FOX. It is their first preseason meeting against the Bengals since 2007. They will go on the road against the Dolphins the following week. They have seen the Dolphins in the past two preseasons, splitting those games. They will close out against the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road on August 30. It is their third consecutive preseason meeting, marking their eighth overall meeting since the Jaguars entered the league in 1995. This will also be the fifth time the two teams have met to close out their preseason schedules, four of which have been hosted by the Jaguars.
The regular season schedule is expected to be announced within the next few weeks prior to the draft on April 26. Last season it was announced a week after the preseason schedule was announced.
