2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game

The Buffalo Bills and New York Giants will be the first two teams into training camp and the first two teams to put toe to leather when they meet at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, OH for the NFL's annual Hall of Fame Game. It really makes sense to have these teams play this game since both fan bases are within driving distance + both teams will have players being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year.

Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014:

  • LB Derrick Brooks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • OT Walter Jones, Seattle Seahawks
  • DE Claude Humphrey, Atlanta Falcons
  • P Ray Guy, Oakland Raiders
  • DB Aeneas Williams, Arizona Cardinals
  • WR Andre Reed, Buffalo Bills
  • DE Michael Strahan, New York Giants

NFL Preseason: Week 1 Schedule

All 32 teams including the Giants and Bills will be hitting the field for Week 1 of the 2014 NFL preseason starting with six games on Thursday, August 7th, two of which will be shown live nationally on the NFL Network. Following up Thursday's action will be six more games on Friday, August 8th and four more games on Saturday, August 9th.

All games are set to start between 7pm and 10pm ET and only a few will be shown live (noted in schedule above) however it would be wise to check your local TV listings as in-market games are usually shown on local network affiliates. It is also worth noting that the NFL Network will broadcast all 65 NFL preseason games even if they are not live.
