It's one of the best times of the year on the sports calendar. The NFL Hall of Fame game kicks off the football season. The Cowboys and Bengals will participate in the game this year.
The 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame class is one of the best ever. Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice headline the class that includes Rickey Jackson, Russ Grimm, John Randle, Dick LeBeau, and Floyd Little.
Part of what makes the 2010 class amazing is that Grimm and Jackson played together at the University of Pittsburgh and were drafted in the same season. They become only the second pair of college teammates to be drafted and inducted into the Hall of Fame in the same years.
Some of the other highlights on the preseason schedule include the opening of the new Meadowlands stadium and matchups between the Saints and Patriots and Cowboys and Chargers.
