It's safe to say people are ready for football.
Sunday's Hall of Fame game between the Dallas Cowboys and Cincinnati Bengals was the highest rated preseason game in six years. The 7.6 rating was the highest since the Cowboys and Tennessee Titans squared off in a preseason game on Aug. 30, 2004.
The game was a 31% increase in viewers from last year's Hall of Fame game between the Titans and Buffalo Bills.
The ratings for the 2010 Hall of Fame game beat out the Yankees and Red Sox on ESPN.
