We made it, everyone. Football is unofficially back. The annual Pro Football Hall of Fame game takes place tonight. It’s only preseason, yes, but that just means the real games are right around the corner.
Thursday night’s game features the Dallas Cowboys (ensue booing) and the Arizona Cardinals this year. The teams will face off against each other at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio.
This game probably won't be all that interesting because it’s only preseason. Ugly and/or boring football is to be expected. There will be a lot of backup players playing.
Tonight’s matchup holds some interest for Eagles fans. Philadelphia plays both of these NFC teams in 2017. The Eagles will square off against the Cardinals in Week 5. The Birds play the Cowboys in Week 11 and Week 17.
Here's everything you need to know about this game if you do plan on watching.
