Are you ready for some football? The NFL is back in our lives on Thursday, Aug. 2 with the Bears vs. Ravens kicking off the preseason in the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. The two teams will take the field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame season to give us our first taste of football in months.
That means the regular season is right around the corner, and all will be right with the world.
The main attraction on Thursday night will be Ravens first-round pick Lamar Jackson. The former Louisville standout and Heisman Trophy winner shredded opponents at the collegiate level and it will be exciting to see how he performs in his first taste of NFL action. The Bears will also look to get a few reps out of last year’s first-round pick Mitch Trubisky, who is looking to take some positive strides under center in 2018.
Below is all of the information you will need to watch the first NFL preseason game of the year.
