Football is here! Well, it's just about here, and it's not quite as entertaining or engaging as regular season football, but the NFL Hall of Fame Game is set to get underway on Sunday. The game will feature the Minnesota Vikings taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers, and it takes place to celebrate the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2015, which features notable players from those franchises in Mick Tingelhoff and Jerome Bettis, respectively.
It's unclear how much the starters will play for either team. The Vikings have more positions unsettled than the Steelers, and still have questions about their starting quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater. They need to see Bridgewater show progression this season, while the Steelers don't have that concern given they have Ben Roethlisberger. Still, the game is plenty important from a roster building perspective.
Pittsburgh does have to answer some questions when it comes to the defensive side of the ball. Jason Worilds, Ike Taylor and Troy Polamalu all retired this offseason, and the team lost defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, which is a pretty significant change given how long he's been with the franchise.
Things will get underway on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on NBC under the Sunday Night Football banner. If you're hoping to watch online, the game will be streamed on NBC Sports Live Extra. Below, we've got all the information you need to watch the game.
