The NFL announced the 2019 regular season schedule on Wednesday, and at least six national television appearances highlight the Dallas Cowboys upcoming season. The Cowboys schedule currently features five games that are going to be broadcast nationally in primetime, two from AT&T Stadium. The Cowboys play six games against teams that qualified for the 2018 playoffs – Chicago, Los Angeles Rams, New England, New Orleans and Philadelphia (twice). Additionally, this season marks the sixth time that the Cowboys will face both Super Bowl participants from the previous season:
Years Teams Years Teams
2019 LA Rams and New England* 1995 San Diego and San Francisco*
2015 New England* and Seattle 1973 Miami* and Washington
2010 Indianapolis and New Orleans* 1970 Kansas City* and Minnesota
* indicates Super Bowl champion
In addition to the two primetime games at AT&T Stadium – both on NBC – and the club’s annual Thanksgiving Day national appearance (this year on CBS), the Cowboys will make three national appearances in primetime on the road, one on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, one on ESPN’s Monday Night Football and once on Thursday night on Fox/NFL Network/Amazon. Dallas will play on Monday Night Football for the 81st time in club history (second in NFL history behind Miami’s 84). Only the San Francisco 49ers (48) and Pittsburgh Steelers (47) have won more MNF games than Dallas’ 46.
For the 10th time in the organization’s history, the Dallas Cowboys will open and close the season at home, and for the sixth time in the last eight seasons – fifth time at home – Dallas will open the season against the N.Y. Giants (Sept. 8). Week 2 has Dallas heading to Washington to take on the Redskins on Sept. 15 to mark the 10th time since 1970 (third in the last five years) the Cowboys will open a season with consecutive division games. The Cowboys start their AFC schedule with a contest against Miami on Sept. 22, followed by Dallas’ first primetime game on Sunday night Sept. 29 at New Orleans to close out the first month of the season.
October opens with a home match-up against Green Bay (10/6), then a road bout at the N.Y. Jets (10/13). The Cowboys will host Philadelphia on Sunday night (Oct. 20) before enjoying their bye week (Oct. 27).
Dallas has a full slate of games in November (five), the first coming on Monday night at the N.Y. Giants (Nov. 4), followed by a Sunday night bout against Minnesota (Nov. 10). Dallas will be in Detroit on Nov. 17 before heading to New England to face the Super Bowl champion Patriots on Nov. 24. The club’s annual Thanksgiving Day game will be against Buffalo on Nov. 28.
The final month of the season opens with a Thursday night game as Dallas will head to Chicago – the fourth straight season the Cowboys will have back-to-back Thursday night games. The 2018 NFC champion LA Rams come to town on Dec. 15 before Dallas closes out the season with two divisional games – first at Philadelphia (Dec. 22) then at home against Washington (Dec. 29).
The Dallas Cowboys will put all remaining 2019 single-game tickets on sale to the general public Wed., April 17 at 9:00 p.m. CDT. Standing room only (SRO) tickets are the only single-game tickets available for purchase.
