The away preseason games will be against the Washington Redskins and the Carolina Panthers in weeks two and four respectively. The game against the Redskins will be national televised on Monday, August 19 on ESPN.

The dates and times for the first, third and fourth games have yet to be determined, but they will all be televised locally on KDKA-TV.

    The Carolina preseason thing is weird.. Bryan, why do we always play the Panthers?

    Curiously, last year we played against Redskins, Giants and Chiefs in a row. Now the preseason (excluding Panthers) will be against the same teams, but changing road and home games.

    Because Cowher liked to travel there. And they made it a tradition.

    Since when do coaches have any say on schedules… I know Cowher currently lives in Raleigh but that doesnt make sense
