The Raiders will take on three NFC North opponents and the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks during their 2014 preseason schedule, the NFL announced Wednesday.

Oakland will open the preseason with a road game against the Minnesota Vikings, who are playing their games outdoors at TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus this season. That game is scheduled to take place between Aug. 7-11.

The Raiders’ first home preseason game will be against the Detroit Lions and will be scheduled between Aug. 14-18.

In Week 3 of the preseason, the Raiders will travel to Green Bay to face the Packers on Aug. 22 for a game nationally televised by CBS.

Preseason wraps up with a visit from the Seahawks on Aug. 28, marking the ninth straight year the two teams have played in the preseason.

Preseason times and specific dates will be announced at a later date.
