Real football is back! Well, at least the preseason version. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings kick off the preseason in the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. Your New York Giants defeated the Buffalo Bills, 17-13, in the 2014 Hall of Fame Game.
Former Giant Michael Strahan was, of course, among the enshrinees into the Hall last year.
The Giants will open their preseason next Friday on the road vs. the Cincinnati Bengals. Game time is 7:30 p.m. ET. The Giants practice Monday at Quest Diagnostics, then head to Cincinnati for two joint practices with the Cincinnati Bengals. Let's hope the Giants and Bengals show a little more restraint than the Washington Redskins and Houston Texans did on Saturday.
