Football is back and it'll be here until February!
The annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio takes place tonight at 8:00pm, with the Buffalo Bills taking on the New York Giants. This will be the 51st Hall of Fame Game, but it will include a first for NFL history -- longer PATs. The NFL is moving the extra point back from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line through the second week of the preseason.
The Bills last participated in the Hall of Fame game in 2009, which resulted in a 21-18 loss to the Tennessee Titans. (You might remember it as the game where punter A.J. Trapasso ran a 40-yard fake into the end zone.)
The Giants will be playing in their fifth Hall of Fame Game, with their last appearance coming in a 34-17 win in 2002 over the Houston Texans. But Giants fans will most likely want to forget that season, as New York was primed to make a strong playoff run, but instead blew a 35-14 lead in the third quarter of a NFC Wild Card game against the San Francisco 49ers.
