A Quick Guide to the Hall of Fame Game

There are so many important dates on the NFL calendar, but one that we should look for every year is that of the game. This is a fantastic event that always sees a turn out of some of the best players in the game, and it is one of the major pre-season events that all football fans should be tuning into. With the preparing to face off against the this year, let’s take a closer look at what we could expect from the game.

What is the Hall of Fame?

The Hall of Fame is where the best of the best in football are immortalized. It is the dream of every player to make it to the Hall of Fame in their career. This honor also extends far past the players themselves – coaches, franchise owners, and those who have made significant contributions to the sport over the years can all be considered to be inducted into the Hall. There are currently 346 members, and between four and eight are added each year.

The Hall itself can be found in Canton, Ohio – the birthplace of the NFL (though it was called the American Professional Football Association when it was founded in 1920). Many football fans make the trip there just to find out more about some of the people who make football what it is. However, there are also many who choose to visit not just for the Hall of Fame itself, but also for the game of football that takes place at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium next door.

Who Plays in the ?

The Hall of Fame Game is a game. This might not have quite the same appeal as a closing tournament like the or March Madness in the , it can carry some important insights into what we can expect from the season – especially when there are two heavy hitters like the Cowboys and the Steelers facing off against each other there. No matter the tournament, following along at a site like will give you plenty of info into how the games might play out.

Keep an eye out around the time of the Super Bowl to find out who will be participating in the Hall of Fame Game in the summer. The participating teams are often announced at the same time as the inductees into the Hall of Fame that year as the two events are celebrated together.

If a very prominent player who is still on the field is due to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, their team is often selected as one of the ones who will be playing. This helps to bring some publicity to the event and can result in more people tuning in to check it out. The Hall of Fame game is held on the Thursday of the celebratory weekend and is the event that kicks everything off. While most NFL preseason events are only aired on local television channels, the Hall of Fame Game is one of the few to air nationwide, so it should be easy to catch.

How Could the Cowboys Fare?

We still have a lot of the preseason left to go, plus , so it would not be fair to judge how the Cowboys might fare in the season overall based on this one contest – whether they win or lose.
