Dallas Cowboys fans are undoubtedly looking forward to the 2012 season -- especially after how the 2011 season ended in bitter defeat at the hands of the hated New York Giants.
The 2012 offseason has been kind to the Cowboys, offseason issues with Dez Bryant aside. The Cowboys upgraded an extremely weak secondary with Brandon Carr and Maurice Claiborne, giving the Cowboys one of the stronger secondaries in the entire league.
Cowboys fans will be able to get their first look at the revamped Dallas defense in the preseason, starting next Monday. Here's when and who the Cowboys will be playing prior to kicking off the regular season against the New York Giants.
Week 1, Monday, August 13: Cowboys at Raiders, ESPN, 7 p.m. CT.
Week 2, Saturday, August 18: Cowboys at Chargers, NFL Network, 8 p.m. CT
Week 3, Saturday, August 25: Rams at Cowboys, 7 p.m. CT
Week 4, Wednesday, August 29: Dolphins at Cowboys, 7:30 p.m. CT
