We now know the Jets' preseason schedule.
■ The preseason opener against the Colts at MetLife Stadium will be played Thursday, Aug. 7, with kickoff set for 7 p.m. ET.
■ The road opener against the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati will be Saturday, Aug. 16, also with a 7 p.m. kickoff.
■ The annual preseason matchup with the Giants at MetLife (Jets are the home team this year) will be Friday, Aug. 22, with a 7:30 kickoff.
■ The annual preseason finale against the Eagles will take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Thursday, Aug. 28, 7 p.m. kickoff.
So if you go to the opener, you might get to see a little bit of Andrew Luck. The finale against the Eagles where backups play the entire game potentially pits Mark Sanchez and Michael Vick facing their former teams. Mainly preseason is about getting your players reps and trimming the roster. The opponents are secondary.
