Dolphins and Cowboys in HOF game

PHOENIX -- The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins will kick off the 2013 preseason in the NFL Hall of Fame Game in August

The nationally televised NFL preseason game is scheduled for an 8:00 p.m.  at Fawcett Stadium on Sunday, August 4th and will be broadcast by NBC. The game will feature two teams for which Bill Parcells worked. Parcells is being inducted into the Hall of Fame that week.

This year’s contest marks the Dolphins’ fourth journey to Canton. Miami is 0-3 in previous visits. Miami suffered losses in the Hall of Fame Game to the Bears in 2005, St. Louis Rams in 2001, and the Philadelphia Eagles in 1978.

The Cowboys return to Canton for the fifth time. Dallas holds a 1-3 record in the Hall of Fame series. Their last appearance came in 2010 with a 16-7 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. That game was preceded by an overtime loss, the only sudden death occurrence in Hall of Fame Game history, to the Cleveland Browns in 1999.  Dallas’ two other appearances were against the Oakland Raiders in 1979 and the Chicago Bears in 1968.

Tickets to the 2013 edition of the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio will go on sale at 11:00 a.m. EDT today.
