Cowboys pre-season home will be on CBS11/TXA21

Owner Jerry Jones again looms large over his iffy "America's Team."

Dallas' longest-running serial drama, the Cowboys, again are getting ready for some football, beginning with Monday night's pre-season kickoff at Oakland.

This time around, CBS11 and sister station TXA21 will have all four exhibition games to themselves. Plus three regular season games, including TXA21's simulcast of ESPN's Oct. 1st Monday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears.

Here's the complete CBS11/TXA21 schedule, touted in a Tuesday publicity release:


Monday, Aug. 13th at Oakland (7 p.m., CBS11)
Saturday, Aug. 18th at San Diego (8 p.m., CBS11)
Saturday, Aug. 25th vs. St. Louis (7 p.m., CBS11)
Wednesday, Aug. 29th vs. Miami (7:30 p.m., TXA21)

Regular season

Monday, Oct. 1st vs. Chicago (7:30 p.m., TXA21)
Sunday, Nov. 18th vs. Cleveland (noon, CBS11)
Sunday, Dec. 16th vs. Pittsburgh (3:25 p.m., CBS11)

As previously posted, Fox has 10 regular season Cowboys on its schedule this season while NBC has the other three. But the Peacock could still use its "flex" option to cherry-pick an extra late season Cowboys game. It did so last season by taking the final game against the New York Giants, which Fox originally had dibs on.
