Football season is finally here.
The NFL preseason officially kicks off on Thursday, Aug. 3 when Robert Saleh’s New York Jets and Kevin Stefanski’s Cleveland Browns compete during the annual Hall of Fame Game.
This one-off contest between the AFC rivals will take place at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium — right next to the Pro Football Hall of Fame — in Canton, Ohio. The exhibition match also serves as Aaron Rodgers’ likely debut with the Gang Green.
At the game, Jets veterans Joe Klecko and Darrelle Revis and Browns icon Joe Thomas will be honored days before their enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Given the historic nature of this game, tickets are somehow still available for this high-profile matchup. At the time of publication, the lowest price we could find was $130 before fees on Vivid Seats. Most sections have tickets from $135 to $205.
