Don't look for big names from Cardinals, Cowboys in HOF Game


Fans will be treated to a first half of football with Blaine Gabbert behind center and a second half that will feature undrafted rookie Trevor Knight.

With this being the first exhibition game of 2017 and technically not even Week 1 of the preseason, just about all of the notable names on both teams will be on the bench for the entire game. After a week of training camp, the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals will convene in Canton, Ohio, to take part in the annual Hall of Fame Game.

Frisbee (6-8 p.m., ESPNU): For something you don't see every week, tune in for the U.S. Open Ultimate Mixed Championship Game to see some the nation's best ultimate frisbee players battle for the title.

The Cardinals are looking to rebound after a highly disappointing 2016 season. With the possibility of losing key players to injury in "meaningless games", many coaches and players continue to question the need for four preseason games, let alone a fifth, but the HOF Game kicks off another party nonetheless. While the players wouldn't go for the latter, trimming the Hall of Fame Game would be a great way to get started on the former. Linebacker Haason Reddick will take the field for a few plays in his professional football debut. For his career totals, he's racked up 686 completed passes for 7,351 yards and 38 touchdowns, with 37 interceptions and 25 fumbles. From one of the craziest Super Bowls in the history of the game we arrive at Cowboys vs. Cardinals in the Backup Bowl.


Aside from Fitzgerald and Palmer announcing their return for the 2017-18 season, BirdGang fans haven't heard much positivity, either. It's been a decade since the Cowboys have made the playoffs in two straight seasons.

The rest of the league won't see any action for at least another week.

The Arizona Cardinals will face the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football on September 25.
