Plot Synopsis

Held in the comfy confines of Fawcett Stadium, a venue typically used for high-school football in Canton, OH, the Hall of Fame Game is an annual preseason classic that traditionally kicks off the new National Football League (NFL) season as part of the weekend activities for the Hall of Fame Enshrinement. ABC first televised this game in 1971 as part of THE WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS, where it continued on Saturday afternoons through 1997. From 1998-2005, ABC televised the game during primetime -- on Saturday for the first year and on Mondays afterward. The game switched to Sunday primetime on NBC in 2006, NFL Network in 2007, and then back to NBC from 2008-2010. After the game was cancelled the following year because of the 2011 lockout, the 2012 game pitted the Arizona Cardinals and the New Orleans Saints on NFL Network on Sunday, August 5, 2012 at 8pm ET/5pm PT. One year later, the game switched back to NBC, which broadcast a game between the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins on Sunday, August 4, 2013 at 8pm ET/5pm PT, and NBC has continued to broadcast the game in primetime since then.
On Sunday, August 9, 2015 at 8pm/5pm PT, NBC presented the 2015 edition of the HALL OF FAME GAME, with the Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the Minnesota Vikings at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, OH.
