If the NFL Lockout is lifted and both teams come to a deal before August, the entire NFL schedule will be unharmed — that includes preseason. Lost in the shuffle of the regular season schedule release yesterday was that the preseason schedule was also released. Here is the Cowboys preseason schedule:
August 11 vs. Denver, 7:30 p.m.
August 20 vs. San Diego, 7 p.m.
August 27 at Minnesota, 7 p.m.
September 1 at Miami, 6:30 p.m.
The Cowboys will have ten days off between their preseason finale at Miami and the regular season opener in New York for a Sunday Night Football game against the Jets. ESPN Dallas points out that with the Cowboys final two preseason games and first regular season games on the road, Dallas will go 37 days between games at Cowboys Stadium.
