The Dallas Cowboys' full 2021 schedule is highlighted by six standalone national games. It starts right away with the Thursday night season opener in Tampa, followed closely by a Monday night game against Philadelphia.
The schedule currently features two appearances on Sunday night football – one road appearance against Minnesota on Halloween night, followed by a late-season division tilt against Washington on Dec. 26.
Finally, there will be back-to-back, nationally televised Thursday games centered around Thanksgiving – as has become customary. The Cowboys will welcome the Las Vegas Raiders to AT&T Stadium on Thanksgiving Day, marking the third time the Raiders have played the Thanksgiving game since the new stadium in 2009 – second only to Washington.
The following week, the Cowboys will travel to New Orleans for a primetime Thursday matchup against the Saints.
