Week 1 NFL preseason schedule concludes tonight with the Cowboys vs Chargers live stream and TV coverage thanks to NFL Network. These two teams have some of the best talent in the NFL on their squads this season and both are entering the 2014 seasons with visions of a Super Bowl title. Both of these teams have underachieved according to many experts, however when you have Tony Romo and Philip Rivers leading the way, this could be the year one or both could break through.
According to Rant Sports on Aug. 6, like most NFL preseason games we will see a lot of the backups by the second quarter of play, but if you are expecting to see Dallas QB Tony Romo you may be waiting another week or two. Brandon Weeden will be the Boys starter tonight and will look to prove to Dallas fans that he is more than capable of leading the Cowboys if given the chance.
The former OSU star is ready to help the Cowboys win after being dealt away from the Cleveland Browns. Weeden knows he isn't going to be the teams starter, but he will be ready if needed.
“We want Tony to play all 16 games but if I’m thrown into the fire these are the guys I’m going to be communicating with and relying on both ways to get the job done,” Weeden said. “This is exciting but at the same time it’s important for me. I want to go out and play well and put together as many drives as we are out there and put together some successful drives.”
As for the Chargers, they need Philip Rivers to produce if they have any shot at winning the AFC West. Last season the Bolts could run the ball with best of them, but finishing 32 overall in passing won't get it done when you play in the same division as Peyton Manning.
San Diego comes into this early match-up as a 3.5 point favorite with the over/under number set at 38. The Cowboys and Chargers game will kick-off at 10 p.m. ET and can be seen live on the NFL Network nationally and streaming live via package plans on NFL.com
