Dak Prescott #4 of the Dallas Cowboys during a 2016 preseason game

The 2017 NFL preseason begins on a Thursday night as the Dallas Cowboys face the Arizona Cardinals in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, Aug. 3 on NBC. Previously, the game was held on Sunday, the day following the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony. Moving the game to Thursday will put more focus on the ceremony, and it should help avoid situations like last year, when the game was canceled due to poor field conditions.

CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN and NFL Network combine to televise preseason games. NFL Network airs 16 live games and replays of all 65 preseason games.
