The selection of these teams makes perfect sense, and most saw it coming from a mile away. Long time Steelers head coach Bill Cowher and safety Troy Polamalu will both be inducted into the Hall of Fame the same week, as will Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson.
For such a star studded class, the NFL couldn't disappoint with the week's preseason match up.
Both the Cowboys and Steelers have played in the Hall of Fame game six times previously, with each team sitting at 3-3 in the game. This will be the first time the two square off against one another in the event, however.
The game will take place on Thursday August 6th, and will officially kick off the NFL preseason.
