Cowboys 2012 Pre-Season Schedule Released: One Nationally Televised Game Against Oakland

Cowboys first pre-season opponent... the Raiders.

The NFL announced the pre-season schedule today. The Dallas Cowboys have a nationally televised pre-season game against the Oakland Raiders on Aug. 13th that will be shown on ESPN at 8 PM EST. The Arizona Cardinals will face the Sean Payton-less New Orleans Saints (we think it will be Payton-less) to start things off in the annual Hall of Fame game on August 5th.

The Cowboys pre-season schedule is as follows:

Week 1: Dallas at Oakland (ESPN, 8/13)

Week 2 (Aug 16th thru 20th): Dallas at San Diego

Week 3 (Aug 23rd - Aug 26th): St. Louis at Dallas
