NFL Hall of Fame Game

What’s on the table today?: NFL Hall of Fame Game 2021 & Packers scores from their HOF Games

The NFL season is now HERE! Aaron Rodgers showed up at 1265 on Tuesday and reports suggest his “compromised” deal is nearing completion.

On Thursday August 5th the first preseason game (Hall of Fame Game) will be played in Canton, Ohio featuring the Steelers and the Cowboys. The Steelers are favorites (-1) with the total set at 33.5 – 34 depending on where you’re finding it.

The Hall of Fame Game will likely feature zero starters for either team, but I’m still going to take Pittsburgh to cover the merger (-1) spread against a Cowboys team that I just never believe in no matter what the situation. I’d also expect this game to go slightly UNDER the total.

In the history of the Hall of Fame Game, the Green Bay Packers have been participants on five occasions with the first coming in 1969. The last time Green Bay was in the Hall of Fame Game was in 2016 but the game was cancelled due to field conditions.
