2013 Steelers preseason schedule released

The Steelers will play on primetime Aug. 19 at Washington as the highlight of their preseason schedule.

Circle Aug. 19 on your calendar, the Steelers will play the Washington Redskins in Preseason Week 2 on ESPN.

Please, calm down. Settle down. I know you're excited. So is ESPN to announce the schedule, they have the three other opponents the Steelers will play - the Giants, Kansas City and Carolina - a team they always seem to play in preseason.

The Redskins game is the primetime one, so for all out-of-town yinzers, you'll have to find a free, legal and clear feed from somewhere to watch the other three games.

No dates are given for preseasons Weeks 1, 3 and 4, but August 19 at Washington, that's the big one. The starters will play possibly into the second quarter, barring injury, so the Steelers could get a second look at Robert Griffin III, a quarterback they beat in Week 8 of the 2012 season.

Week 1 (TBA) vs. New York Giants
Week 2 (Aug. 19) at Washington (ESPN)
Week 3 (TBA) vs. Kansas City
Week 4 (TBA) at Carolina
