    Chargers-Cowboys preseason game moves to NBC prime time
    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 26, 2011, 1:44 PM EDT


    The NFL’s decision to cancel the Hall of Fame Game meant one fewer nationally televised prime time preseason game this year.

    But now that has changed.

    The NFL announced today that the Chargers-Cowboys game that had been scheduled for Saturday, August 20 had been moved to Sunday, August 21 at 8 PM ET. The game will be broadcast nationally by NBC, which had been scheduled to show the Hall of Fame Game.

    It will be the second preseason game for both teams. They both open the preseason on Thursday, August 11, with the Chargers playing the Seahawks and the Cowboys playing the Broncos.

    And so, with NBC getting a replacement for the Hall of Fame, the only real financial losses for the 2011 preseason were the ticket sales for the undersized Fawcett Stadium in Canton.
