Cowboys release preseason schedule

The Dallas Cowboys released their preseason schedule Wednesday afternoon.

As expected, the Cowboys open the preseason against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Hall of Fame Game on Sun., Aug. 8 in Canton, Ohio. The game will be played at 7 p.m. CT and shown nationally on NBC.

The Cowboys then return home to play the Oakland Raiders at Cowboys Stadium. There currently is speculation that the Raiders are interested in discussing a trade for Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.

The third preseason game will be in San Diego, which lines up the Cowboys to shift their training camp from San Antonio to Oxnard, Calif.

Dallas will then head back to Texas, where they will visit the Houston Texans in the fourth preseason game at 7 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 28. The game will be broadcast nationally by CBS. The Cowboys also play the Texans during the regular season.

The Cowboys then close the preseason at Cowboys Stadium vs. the Miami Dolphins.

Final dates and times for the preseason games against the Raiders, Chargers and Dolphins -- and the regular-season schedule -- will be announced by the NFL at a later date.
