Cheer up, ladies and gentlemen. Football is finally back.
On Thursday night, the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals officially kickoff the NFL preseason by heading to Canton, Ohio for the 2017 Hall of Fame Game.
Normally, the Hall of Fame Game is played the Sunday following the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, but after field conditions were a disaster a year ago, the league decided to push the game to Thursday night in hopes of having a better playing surface.
We’ll have to see if that pays off when the two teams step onto the field for the first time in months.
