The Cowboys preseason schedule was officially released on Wednesday and to no surprise the first two games were on the West Coast to accommodate the team holding training camp in Oxnard, Ca.
The Cowboys will open at the Oakland Raiders Aug. 13 in a game nationally televised on ESPN. That is the only date that is firm.
The second game will be at the San Diego Chargers the weekend of Aug. 17-19. They will host the St. Louis Rams in the first preseason game at Cowboys stadium during the week of Aug. 24-26 before concluding the preseason at home against the Miami Dolphins the week of Aug. 29-30.
Look for the game to be on the Aug. 29 to give the Cowboys maximum time to prepare for the season opener which is set for Wednesday Sept. 5 at the New York Giants.
The full regular season schedule will be announced later this month.
