Cowboys Lose 2 More 2020 Preseason Games as NFL Adjusts to COVID-19

    After already losing the to precautions, the will now lose two more contests as the NFL has cancelled all and Week 4 games this August.

    It was announced last week that the exhibition between Dallas and the during Weekend would be cancelled and their early starts to would be pushed back. This next move by the NFL will affect all teams.

    As reported by Pro Football Talk, the league's decision will allow teams more time to prepare for the extra precautions needs to pull of games and travel. Eliminating the Week 4 game is more to avoid unnecessary risk in what typically is a meaningless affair.

    This means the Cowboys will not be traveling to Los Angeles for their scheduled Week 1 game against the Chargers. The cancelled Week 4 game was the usual match against the .

    Dallas' remaining preseason games are both at home, first against the and then the . There is potential that the sites of these games may be adjusted to provide better balance due to the cancellations.

    The Cowboys and Ravens are also scheduled to meet in Baltimore during Week 13 of the regular season.

    As we said last week with the cancellation of the Steelers game, these moves may just be the beginning of the NFL's adjustments to the pandemic. As case numbers continue to rise in many parts of the country, how long before the 2020 regular season is impacted?

    Sad to say it but I don’t see this season or any sports season happening this year. Too much pressure…political and otherwise…to keep anything from coming back to normal.

    I’m not saying it will go smooth but MLB and NBA are both starting up in around 3-4 weeks and even though it’s probably not the smartest thing to do, these owners are very greedy, so I’m expecting them to try everything to get the NFL season in.

    Im starting to think you are right, especially since the season being cancelled would fix the issues with the salary cap as a result of the pandemic. Plus I think majority of the players are close to skipping the season on there own, which would effectively motivate NFL,Commissioner Rodger Goodwill to cancel the season.

    I’m sure they’ll figure something out!! The NBA is starting back up at the end of the month!! There’s a lot of players choosing not to play, but the NBA is still gonna play!! So if the NBA can figure out a way to start their season back up, I’m sure the NFL can too


    a 2 game PRE season should be kept going forward
    The last 2 (first 2? – Middle 2?) are a total waste anyway
    No longer needed to play guys back into shape – it’s why NFL dropped from 6 to 4 in the late 70s

    Cancel the season or gives us the option to apply this year payments to next year season I’m no going to any games this year period!
