It's been six months since we have had the opportunity to watch any life NFL football. Thankfully for the die-hard NFL fan the waiting ends tomorrow evening when the Minnesota Vikings meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2015 edition of the Hall of Fame Game.
Both of the teams in this years game will gain the added benefit of playing in five full preseason games vs. the four that the other 30 NFL teams will play in. While both teams have some big name stars, like Ben Roethlisberger, Adrian Peterson, Antonio Brown and former Miami Dolphins wide out Mike Wallace, do not look to see them getting much time in this game or even expect to see them all dressed for this weeks contest.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a 2014 season that saw them win the AFC North with an 11 and 5 record. The Vikings who were missing start running back Peterson for the majority of the season were only able to muster a 7 and 9 record and third place in the NFC North.
