The NFL got around to announcing the dates and the times for all 65 of the pre-season games that will be played this year. Pre-season action begins on Sunday, August 7th at 8 PM EST with the Hall of Fame Game between the Green Bay Packers and the Indianapolis Colts. The Dallas Cowboys will play four games and they are as follows:

Saturday Aug. 13th - 8 PM EST: Dallas Cowboys @ Los Angeles Rams (ESPN)

Friday Aug. 19th - 8 PM EST: Miami Dolphins @ Dallas Cowboys

Thursday Aug. 25th - 10 PM EST: Dallas Cowboys @ Seattle Seahawks

Thursday Sept. 1st - 8 PM EST: Houston Texans @ Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys will re-introduce the Los Angeles Rams to NFL football when they take on the team in their first pre-season game of the year for both teams. That game will be available on ESPN. The tentative plan for the Cowboys is to begin training camp on July 28th, and they will leave Oxnard for the Star and their second pre-season game against the Dolphins, then finish training camp at the new facility.
