Patriots release practice schedule ahead of Week 1 preseason game

·1 min read

The New England Patriots are revving things up in preparation for their first preseason game of the year against the New York Giants on Thursday.

Given the quick turnaround, it will be a shorter week than usual with some adjustments being made to the overall practice schedule. The team is saying so long to the morning practices with players now slated to take the field at 4 p.m. ET on Monday and Tuesday.

Both practices will be open to fans and media.

The team will then hold another practice on Wednesday, ahead of their Week 1 preseason opener against the Giants, that will be closed to the public. And then of course, Thursday will be game day.

The following week, the Patriots are scheduled to host joint practices with the Carolina Panthers on August 16 and August 17, leading into their Week 2 preseason clash on Friday, August 19.

Grab some popcorn. It’s time to see what this Patriots team is all about.
