Cowboys release 2014 preseason schedule

IRVING, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys preseason schedule has been announced and features a favorable lack of travel zig-zagging but demands plenty of sunscreen.

The Cowboys’ second game is at  AT&T Stadium against the Ravens the weekend of Aug. 14-18.

The Cowboys’ third preseason game is at Miami the weekend of Aug. 21-24.

More specific dates and times have yet to be released.
