Redskins Release Preseason Schedule, Includes Game With Colts

The Washington Redskins and Indianapolis Colts have been the talk of the upcoming NFL Draft. First, the 'Skins traded up to snag the second overall selection behind the Colts' top pick, which was followed by rampant "Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III?" speculation.

Despite all of the hearsay and conjecture, here is what we know: the Colts will either get Luck or Griffin and the Redskins will get whoever the Colts don't pick.

The 'Skins could also prove that the Colts made a mistake early next season.

The NFL released its preseason schedule Wednesday, and as fate would have it, Washington will host Indianapolis at FedEx Field during Week 3 of the preseason. Since the two teams do not meet during the regular season, this meaningless game will be the 'Skins only chance this year to show the Colts what they could have had.

Is this the most important preseason game in NFL history? Of course not. "Important preseason game" is an oxymoron. As a member of the media, it is my job to exaggerate, so exaggerate I will.

The 'Skins will also meet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home during Week 4 and will travel to Buffalo and Chicago to face the Bills and Bears during Weeks 1 and 2, respectively. Shameless plug: the first three games will be broadcast locally on NBC4, with the possibility that the Colts/'Skins game could be switched to a nationally televised game.
