The Dallas Cowboys 2009 schedule holds a lot of promise. The Dallas Cowboys 2009 schedule gets started with a pre-season game on Thursday, August 13th before heading towards the regular season. It’s an exciting time for Dallas Cowboys fans, as the 2009 Dallas Cowboys schedule finally gets ready to begin, and the team begins its latest quest to get back to the Super Bowl. There are definitely some tough games in the Dallas Cowboys 2009 schedule, but with the schedule also comes the promise that anything is possible. On paper, it seems that the Dallas Cowboys 2009 schedule is a tough one, and should definitely test the Cowboys this season.
The first game on the Dallas Cowboys 2009 schedule is a pre-season match-up against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, August 14th at 6:00 P.M. PST. From there the Cowboys have three additional pre-season games on their schedule, including an August 21st game against Tennessee, an August 29th game against the San Francisco 49ers, and a September 4th game against the Minnesota Vikings. This all leads up to the first regular season game of the Dallas Cowboys 2009 schedule, as they head to Tampa Bay to play the Buccaneers on Sunday, September 13th in an important NFC match-up.
This season is going to be a tough one within the NFC East division again, and it will test the Cowboys during their 2009 schedule run. They have to face the New York Giants twice, the Philadelphia Eagles twice, the Washington Redskins twice, and several other AFC and NFC games that could really test their defense. The defense is going to need to be firing on all cylinders with games against the New Orleans Saints, the San Diego Chargers, and the Seattle Seahawks also appearing on the schedule. The final game of the season could also be a very important one, as the Dallas Cowboys play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, January 3rd.
A couple of games stand out for National audiences on the Dallas Cowboys 2009 schedule, including a Monday Night football game on September 28th against Carolina on ESPN, and a Thanksgiving game on November 26th against the Oakland Raiders.
