The 2019 Hall of Fame Game

Football is back! Well, preseason football at least.

The NFL preseason officially kicks off Thursday night with the annual Hall of Fame game, featuring the Denver Broncos taking on the Atlanta Falcons at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio.

The game is tonight on NBC at 7pm.

One quirk of playing in the Hall of Fame game is that both the Broncos and the Falcons will end up playing five exhibition games, since the match-up is scheduled a week before the league’s four-week preseason begins. As a result, many starters aren’t expected to see the field at all Thursday night, including Falcons receiver Julio Jones, who told reporters he won’t play during the preseason.

Calling the game will be longtime play-by-play announcer Al Michaels, returning for his 13th season with NBC and his 34th season as the voice of the NFL’s top primetime package. Joining Michaels will be longtime analyst and self-professed Eagles Cris Collinsworth and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.
