With the Patriots preseason schedule set to be released Wednesday at 3:15 p.m., here’s a look at the last 10 preseason slates for New England.
2004: vs. Philadelphia, at Cincinnati, at Carolina, vs. Jacksonville
2005: at Cincinnati, vs. New Orleans, at Green Bay, vs. N.Y. Giants
2006: at Atlanta, vs. Arizona, vs. Washington, at N.Y. Giants
2007: at Tampa Bay, vs. Tennessee, at Carolina, vs. N.Y. Giants
2008: vs. Baltimore, at Tampa Bay, vs. Philadelphia, at N.Y. Giants
2009: at Philadelphia, vs. Cincinnati, at Washington, vs. N.Y. Giants
2010: vs. New Orleans (joint practices), at Atlanta (joint practices), vs. St. Louis, at N.Y. Giants
2011: vs. Jacksonville, at Tampa Bay. at Detroit, vs. N.Y. Giants
2012: vs. New Orleans (joint practices), vs. Philadelphia, at Tampa Bay (joint practices), at N.Y. Giants
2013: at Philadelphia (joint practices), vs. Tampa Bay (joint practices), at Detroit, vs. N.Y. Giants.
Based on this, we can reasonable assume a couple of things when it comes to the 2014 preseason schedule.
— The Patriots will likely their preseason slate at MetLife Stadium against the Giants. New England has faced the Giants nine straight years in the preseason finale, alternating between games in Foxboro and North Jersey. This year, it figures to be a trip to Jersey.
— There will be a series of joint practices with a Bill Belichick ally. Maybe another visit with either the Falcons, Saints or Eagles?
