The Broncos and Cowboys will square off in Week 1 of the 2011 preseason schedule on Thursday night and the biggest story line coming into this game is the Broncos quarterback situation. QB Kyle Orton is still on the team and the Broncos are expected to tab him the starter, assuming he isn't traded. QB Tim Tebow is behind him and will be competing for the job while QB Brady Quinn is in the mix for a backup job as well.
The Cowboys are trying to fix things after what went down last year. They were an 11-win team in 2009 and returned in 2010 getting off to a miserable start, which lead to the firing of Wade Phillips and hiring of Jason Garrett. They're a good team -- we know that. It's just a matter of proving it.
The Cowboys are three-point favorites -- as if you can predict preseason games -- and the matchup will be played at Cowboys Stadium.
Game Date/Time: Thursday, August 11; 8:30 p.m. ET
Location: Cowboys Stadium, Dallas, Texas
