NFL (6-9 p.m., ESPN/NFLN): The 2017 NFL Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony will feature Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones among the inductees. That means this year the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals play five preseason games instead of four, have an extra week of practices and give their players an extra week of meaningless football that needlessly exposes them to injury and jeopardizes their careers.
As for the Arizona Cardinals, a former 49ers' starting quarterback takes the first half of the game tonight, per ESPN.
The NFL is back with fans excited to watch the Cowboys vs. Cardinals live streaming online and on television Thursday night.
That said, Arians isn't wrong to keep his starters off the field.
So it begins. The first preseason game of the 2017 National Football League season.
Dallas Cowboys, in the meantime, plan to build on the success of last season and head coach Jason Garrett will use this pre-season to shape the team into the way he wants them to play in the upcoming campaign. "You got one or the other". You're getting the game juices flowing.
While much of the discussion circling the Cowboys this offseason has been focused on the negative off-field issues relating to Zeke, and the wrongfully accused Lucky Whitehead, Big-D still has plenty to be positive about.
Due to the fact the game rosters for this sort of preseason game are so unknown and unpredictable, it's also led to very close odds in terms of a victor. For Arians, it's "all about young guys", many of whom he's "anxious to see them cover and block and return kicks". The game will be televised nationally by NBC at 8:00pm ET.
