Are you ready for some football? The 2012 NFL preseason kicked off on Sunday night with the annual Hall of Fame game between the New Orleans Saints and the Arizona Cardinals in Canton, Ohio, but starting this Thursday we get a full plate of NFL helpings!
From Thursday, August 9th until Monday the 13th the NFL will kick off Week 1 of the 2012 preseason schedule. Football may be the only one of the four major sports that fans are actually excited to watch in the preseason.
The first game to kickoff on Thursday will showcase Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins as they take on the Buffalo Bills from Buffalo. Fans in D.C. are excited to see if RG3 can revive the proud franchise. Other teams that fans may have their eyes on will be the Jets, Broncos and Colts.
Andrew Luck will take the field for the Indianapolis Colts and for the first time in over a decade Indy will have someone besides Peyton Manning calling the signals. Speaking of Manning, can Eli take the Giants to the Super Bowl again?
