Here's a jump-start on planning out your August.
The NFL announced official times for all of the preseason games this August, which, of course, includes the four contests the Ravens will be featured in.
The preseason schedule is as follows:
Thursday, Aug. 7: San Francisco 49ers at Baltimore Ravens, 7 p.m. EST
Saturday, Aug. 16: Baltimore Ravens at Dallas Cowboys, 7 p.m. EST
Saturday, Aug. 23: Washington Redskins at Baltimore Ravens, 7:30 p.m. EST
Thursday, Aug. 28: Baltimore Ravens at New Orleans Saints, 8 p.m. EST
All of these games will be featured on local television, with the major networks passing on the Ravens this preseason. Though these games are ultimately meaningless, they do provide essential clues as to how the team will look once Week 1 hits.
