Folks, we made it. After a long, slow offseason, NFL players will finally be getting back on the field for a live game this week, as the NFL Hall of Fame Game is set for Thursday night. The Pittsburgh Steelers will be facing off against the Dallas Cowboys in that preseason opening matchup.
Following that game, there will be a week of no football — well, no live games at least — for another week, but then things really start to pick up with preseason matchups. Below is the upcoming schedule, including that Hall of Fame Game and the Preseason Week 1 slate that will follow.
