The NFL has announced its 2018 lineup for preseason games which will air live on its own NFL Network. Unsurprisingly, the ratings-driving Dallas Cowboys will be seen more than once.

The @NFL and @nflnetwork have announced that the following @dallascowboys preseason games will be aired live on their network: Week 1: 8/9 @ San Francisco #49ers, 9 PM CT Week 2: 8/18 Vs. Cincinnati #Bengals, 6 PM CT

The Cowboys’ preseason opener on Thursday, August 9th will be shown beginning at 9:00 pm CST. They will be visiting the San Francisco 49ers.

The first home game comes nine days later on Saturday, August 18th, with the Cowboys hosting the Cincinnati Bengals at 6:00 pm CST.

These are the only two live games for the Cowboys on the NFL Network, but Dallas will also be seen on NBC’s Sunday Night Football for their Week 3 game on August 26th. This primetime game will see them hosting the Arizona Cardinals.

In total, this means that three of the four Cowboys preseason games this year are guaranteed to be on national television. And best of all, it’s the three you probably most want to watch.

The fourth and final preseason game against the Houston Texans will take place on Thursday night, August 20th. The NFL Network has already announced other games for this time slot.

Still, this is great news for the many Dallas fans who live in other parts of the country. You won’t have to work very hard to get to see your Cowboys this August!
