The Oakland Raiders announced their four-game preseason schedule, which includes a national television appearance against the Cowboys on Monday Night Football. For more chatter on the schedule, head over to Silver & Black Pride.

The NFL announced the full slate of 2012 preseason games Wednesday afternoon, and the Oakland Raiders will be featured on national television early in the schedule. The Raiders will host the Dallas Cowboys at O.Co Coliseum on Monday, August 13. The game will be broadcast on Monday Night Football to wrap up week one the preseason. This marks the 28th preseason meeting of the two teams, with the Raiders holding an 18-9 advantage all-time.

The Raiders will then travel to face the Arizona Cardinals in week two. The Raiders are 7-5 in the preseason against Arizona and met last year in the preseason. They then come home to face the Detroit Lions in week three, marking only the sixth preseason meeting between the two teams. The Raiders are 4-1 in that series. The Raiders wrap up the preseason with a week four contest at the Seattle Seahawks, marking the seventh straight preseason they have faced off. For the first time since 2000, the Raiders will not face their cross-Bay rivals, the San Francisco 49ers. After the violence at Candlestick Park last preseason, the two teams agreed it was necessary to take a break from the preseason series.

The three non-ESPN games will air on KTVU FOX Channel 2 and KICU Action 36.
