The NFL released the full preseason 2012 schedule on Wednesday, and to no one's surprise, the Dallas Cowboys are once again kicking off the season on national TV.

The Cowboys host the Oakland Raiders in a match-up of two marquee franchises trying to regain their former glory on Monday August 13 on ESPN.

In Week 2, Dallas will travel to San Diego to face former Cowboys offensive coordinator Norv Turner and the Chargers.

In Week 3, often considered the most important for making roster decisions, the Cowboys host the St. Louis Rams in a rematch of last season's regular season game which served as the national coming out party for RB DeMarco Murray.

The Cowboys will conclude the preseason with a Week 4 road date in Miami, who may be breaking in a first-round rookie QB like Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill.
