Bet that snuck up on you, didn’t it?

The 2021 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game is here and features the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers. These two have met in three Super Bowls and boast 2021 Hall of Fame inductees Drew Pearson, Jimmy Johnson, Alan Faneca, Bill Cowher, and Troy Polamalu.

Obviously we did not see a HOF game last year and neither an induction ceremony, so this year’s proceedings will combine the 2020 and 2021 classes together, spread out over the weekend. As for the game itself? Yeah it exists. Most of the familiar names won’t be playing a snap. It’ll be awful football like preseason tends to be, but here’s how you can watch it anyway.
