WASHINGTON (AP) - Metro says its rail system will stay open an additional hour to help riders get home from the Washington Redskins' preseason game at FedEx Field.

Metro says event organizers will pay for an extra hour of service on Thursday when the Redskins play the New England Patriots. The game begins at 7:30 p.m.

Metro says riders should enter the Largo Town Center or Morgan Boulevard stations near the field no later than 12:20 a.m. to make sure they make the last trains. Metro normally closes at midnight on Thursdays.

Metro says the entrances at other Metro stations will close at their normal times, but riders will be able to exit all stations during the additional hour of service.
