Before Kevin Stefanski tackles his first regular season as the Browns' head coach, he'll see his old team back in his new stadium.
The Browns' nationally televised, Aug. 30 matchup with the Vikings will mark the third of three preseason games against NFC North competition -- foes Stefanski is certainly familiar with after spending 14 years in Minnesota.
"Playing three NFC North teams, they're teams that are really well-coached," Stefanski said. "I'm looking forward to the competition and looking forward to that piece of it. The preseason is such a huge part of our development, of our evaluation of our players when the young guys can get put under the lights. We're excited about those four games in the preseason."
The Browns will open the preseason with road trips to Chicago and Green Bay. They'll host Tampa Bay -- marking the fifth time in the last six years the teams have seen each other in the preseason -- to cap the four-week slate of games. Outside of the Vikings' game, none have set dates but will in the near future.
