The New York Jets and Buffalo Bills announced their preseason schedules on Thursday evening. Here are the games:
Week 1: at Detroit Lions
Week 2: vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Week 3: at New York Giants
Week 4: vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Week 1: at Indianapolis Colts
Week 2: vs. Minnesota Vikings
Week 3: at Washington Redskins
Week 4: vs. Detroit Lions
What stands out most about the Jets is they have only one true road game, in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. After that, the Jets remain at home the rest of the preseason to face the Jaguars, Giants and Eagles. The Giants game is considered a "road" contest for the Jets, but both teams share MetLife Stadium.
The new-look Bills will begin the Doug Marrone era on the road against the Colts. Buffalo will face three playoff teams (Colts, Vikings, Redskins) from a year ago in the preseason. That should help the Bills get ready for the regular season.
