Football finally and officially begins tonight. The Pro Football Hall of Fame Game kicks off the NFL season as the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens begin the 2018 preseason in Canton. Each of these two teams have a legendary linebacker entering the Hall in this weekend’s enshrinement ceremony, making them a natural choice for the game.
Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers have a living legend of their own entering the Hall, as Jerry Kramer finally will receive the honor that is so long overdue. Stay tuned through the weekend’s festivities as APC’s Kris Burke will be on-site, so keep it locked here at APC and on all of our social media channels throughout the next several days.
In the meantime, try to enjoy the first competitive football of the 2018 NFL season tonight.
