The NFL preseason rolls on with a jam-packed slate for Saturday, Aug. 20. The eight-game slate will be nightcapped by a showdown in Los Angeles between the Cowboys and Chargers.
Both teams are looking for their first preseason win after taking losses to kick off their exhibition schedules.
The Cowboys dropped a tough one to the Broncos, only putting up one score in a 17-7 loss. Stars like Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and CeeDee Lamb all sat out the first preseason contest and there has been no indication if they will suit up for Dallas’ Week 2 matchup with Los Angeles.
As for the Chargers, they fell 29-22 to their in-house rival Rams to kick off the preseason. In a similar fashion, the majority of their stars did not suit up, with players like Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen, Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack all watching from the sidelines.
It has yet to be determined if those players will be available for Week 2, either.
