Their August 24th tilt will be the third preseason game for each team, viewed as the most important game of the preseason.
This will be the second joint practice of the preseason for New England, as the Pats and New Orleans Saints will practice together at Gillette Stadium prior to their preseason opener on August 9. The Patriots and Saints also held a joint practice in 2009, with Bill Belichick calling them some of the best practice sessions the team had that summer.
