The Baltimore Ravens announced their preseason schedule on Wednesday.

The Ravens will kickoff their preseason schedule on the road against the Atlanta Falcons on Aug. 9th.

They will then return home to M&T Bank Stadium to host the Detroit Lions in a nationally televised FOX game.

The Ravens play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Aug. 23 and will wrap up the preseason on the road against the St. Louis Rams on Aug. 30.

The schedule contains a mixture of new and old preseason foes for the Ravens. The Aug. 23 matchup against the Jaguars will be the first time the two teams squared off in the preseason, while the Ravens will be seeing the Lions and Rams for the third time in preseason action.

Meanwhile, the Ravens and Falcons have become quite familiar with eachother in recent years. The two teams are set to meet for the ninth time in the preseason, and all but two meetings have taken place in Atlanta.

For what it’s worth, the Ravens are a 38-25 in preseason play and 11-5 under head coach John Harbaugh, who took over as coach in 2008.

Here is the schedule as follows:

Thursday, Aug. 9 at Atlanta Falcons

Friday, Aug. 17 vs. Detroit Lions (FOX-TV National, 8 p.m.)

Thursday, Aug. 23 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Thursday, Aug. 30 at St. Louis Rams
