Tom Benson Hall Of Fame Stadium In Canton, Ohio, Where The Hall Of Fame Game Is Played

NFL Football is officially on.

The end of every (at last, it’s over) offseason is declared with the Hall of Fame exhibition game.

It’s played, of course, in Canton, Ohio, home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, on the Sunday following Saturday’s induction ceremony, and kicks off the preseason.

On Saturday, six players and two general managers were enshrined, including Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, Junior Seau and five-time (the most) Super Bowl champion Charles Haley.

On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings won their third HOF Game over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Three other teams have won three times.

That’s not the most, though. The Washington Redskins edge out the Chicago Bears 5-4 for the top two slots.
