"Real" NFL football makes it's first appearance this summer as the Buffalo Bills take on the Tennessee Titans in the Pro Football's Hall of Fame game this evening at 7 PM Central time. This game does not count as a preseason game for either team although there will be an actual game being played. Should be a lot of fun to watch.

Here is a little more info:

The Hall of Fame Game, that takes place the day following the enshrinement of the Class of 2009 (Bob Hayes, Randall McDaniel, Bruce Smith, Derrick Thomas, Ralph Wilson and Rod Woodson), caps the multi-day Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival in Canton.

It also marks the first of numerous ways in which the NFL will pay tribute to the American Football League’s 50th Anniversary Season throughout the year. The Titans (who began as the Houston Oilers) and the Bills are charter members of the AFL. The AFL merged with the NFL in 1970 with all of the AFL clubs joining the newly created American Football Conference (AFC). In honor of the anniversary, the Titans will take the field in Houston Oilers ‘60s styled uniforms. Buffalo will also wear throwback uniforms in the game.

Like I mentioned above, kickoff is at 7 PM central time and the game will be televised nationally by NBC.

Follow the Bills action at Buffalo Rumblings and the Titans at Music City Miracles.


This is the open thread for the game. Everyone have a good Sunday?
