Real live football is back! Well, sort of. The NFL preseason kicks off tonight with the annual NFL Hall Of Fame Game. The Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Canton, Ohio. The game won't be competitive since it'll feature mostly backups, but it's still better than no football at all. Right?
The Eagles also have at least one notable connection in this game. It'll be interesting to keep an eye on Brandon Boykin, whom Philadelphia traded away last week.
