On Thursday, the league announced the 2013 NFL preseason schedule for each team. All of the exact dates and times have not been set, but each team now knows who they will face before the kickoff of the regular season. The preseason schedule announcement is yet another small taste of what to expect from the upcoming year in the NFL.
The Indianapolis Colts will face three AFC teams in their four preseason games, starting with a home game against the Buffalo Bills in week one. In week two, the Colts will have a nationally televised game on FOX, when they travel to play the New York Giants.
In the third week of the preseason, the Cleveland Browns will be making their third appearance at Lucas Oil Stadium in the past three years. The Browns have played two regular season games at Indianapolis recently, losing to the Colts last year, but defeating the Colts in 2011.
The final preseason game for the Colts will be an away game against a very familiar foe. For the 11th-straight season, the Indianapolis Colts will finish up their preseason with a game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
