The Washington Redskins face some familiar foes during this year's preseason slate, as they'll play against the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars. *

The Redskins open up their preseason schedule this year with an away matchup against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. The two teams squared off in a Week 2 preseason matchup last season at FedExField.

The Browns are led by second-year head coach Mike Pettine, who amassed a 7-9 record last season. They made several offseason moves early on during free agency this year, including signing former Pro Bowl wide receiver Dwayne Bowe to a deal.

The Redskins have won six of their last seven preseason games against the Browns. 

Next is the first home preseason game of the season for the Redskins, a matchup with the Detroit Lions at FedExField. Behind head coach Jim Caldwell in his first season with the organization, the Lions earned one of the NFC's two wild-card berths following the 2014 regular season.

The third game of the preseason will be at the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens – who appeared in the playoffs last year – are led by head coach John Harbaugh, in his eighth season with the team, and quarterback Joe Flacco. This will mark the eighth time in 11 years that the cross-conference foes have met in the preseason. 

The preseason finale will be a home game on Thursday, Sept. 3, at FedExField against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The two franchises faced off last year during regular-season action, as the Redskins downed the Jaguars by a final score of 41-10. Jacksonville is led by third-year head coach Gus Bradley and 2014 first-round pick Blake Bortles.

Take a look at photos of Redskins vs. the four teams they will face in the 2015 preseason.

All four games will be televised locally on NBC4 and Comcast SportsNet and can be heard on the Redskins Radio Network.

Specific times, along with dates for the first three preseason games, will be determined at a later date.
