Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 2011 preseason schedule released

If and when the NFL resolves its ongoing labor crisis, the Bucs will have an interesting slate of preseason games this fall.

The full NFL preseason schedule was released this afternoon, and the Bucs open with a nationally televised game at Kansas City, followed by home games against the Patriots and Dolphins and concluding with a road finale at the Redskins.

For the first time since 2001, the Bucs will not have a preseason game against either the Texans or Jaguars, giving fans a bit of variety for a change.

The opener, at Kansas City, on August 12, will be carried to a national audience on FOX. The Bucs are playing the Chiefs for the second straight preseason.

Exact dates for the remaining exhibition games will be released when the full NFL schedule is released later, but date ranges are already specified.

Week 1 (Aug. 12): At Kansas City

Week 2 (Aug. 18-22) New England

Week 3 (Aug. 25-28): Miami

Week 4 (Sept. 1-2): At Washington
