Heading into last week’s NFL schedule release, the Patriots’ first ever trip to Las Vegas was one of the most anticipated dates on the schedule. As it later turned out, the team will be heading to Nevada twice – playing their preseason finale against the Raiders in addition to the regular season meeting.
For those hoping to follow the team out to Las Vegas this summer, the date and time of that game have now reportedly been set. According to Vic Tafur of the Athletic, that game will take place on Friday Aug. 26 at 8:15 p.m. ET.
Multiple reports have indicated the Patriots may hold joint practices in Vegas with the Raiders leading up to that game. Joint workouts between the teams would make sense giving the coaching familiarity, with long-time Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels being hired as the Raiders’ head coach earlier this offseason.
There are still not dates or times for the Patriots first two preseason games, both of which will be played at home. They’re schedule to face the Giants in Week 1, and the Panthers in Week 2.
