Is there a rhyme or reason to how preseason opponents are selected? It sure seems like they end up playing Cleveland, New England, and Buffalo in the preseason fairly often.

We have an agreement with Cleveland to play them every year in the preseason. We call the game the Great Lakes Classic. We rotate home field every year.

Rather face New England in the Preseason than in the regular season....ha ha. :P

Only it's the third pre-season game, which is when most teams use "real bullets" for the first half. Might be a good gauge for how the season is going to go.

That happened a few years ago. If I remember correctly we schooled them big time. Belichik left Brady in the game until 1/2 thru the 4 th quarter.
