Hall of Fame Game live updates:
What was the most surprising catch of NFL minicamp?
It might not be a surprise to hear that rookie running back Najee Harris made one-handed catches during Steelers minicamp. But it’s definitely still impressive, and he took over social media with his spectacular display!
Pittsburgh Steelers players to watch for
Pittsburgh Steelers fans will be licking their chops tonight as they get to see both Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins compete for the number two spot. Both quarterbacks have been playing phenomenally this season, with each throwing four touchdowns in his last outing.
Rookie running back Najee Harris is expected to play some tonight too, which will be exciting to watch. He’s played well at training camp and was the best back in college football. A big guy at 6’2” (1.88m) and 230 pounds (104 kg), he can block and he can catch.
Another player to watch for is center Kendrick Green. The Steelers lost Pouncey last season as well as tackles Alejandro Villanueva and Matt Feiler, and guard David DeCastro, so they’re looking to improve the offensive line.
NFL Hall of Fame best
There’s nothing better than getting the chance to see some of your favorite players from NBA history in person, which is why we’re going to list our five favorites! It has been a treat seeing all these legends over time play for their hometown teams and do what they love. Without further ado, here are our top 5 Hall of Fame games ever:
Moses Malone – The Moses One was unstoppable during his tenure with Philadelphia 76ers since he averaged 20 points per game throughout that span while also grabbing 10 rebounds. He scored an amazing 60 point total against Denver Nuggets on November 30th 1980 when playing there as well! His final season came around 1984-1985 where he played for Washington Bullets averaging 18 points and 12 boards before retiring at
Dallas rookies have a chance to impress in tonight’s Hall-of-Fame game
As this is preseason game number one and quarterback Dak Prescott is still nursing a shoulder strain, we won’t see the starting quarterback play tonight. In practice, he’s been limited to non-throwing drills, as coach Mike McCarthy is airing on the side of caution.
We can use this game as a way to evaluate some of the younger players on the team. There are 16 players who won’t even be in Canton tonight. Behind Prescott on the depth chart, we’ve got Ben DiNucci, Cooper Rush, and Garrett Gilbert. Gilbert has the most experience of the three after starting last season in week 9 against none other than the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the Cowboys haven’t yet named an official number two quarter back after Prescott.
On defense, we’ll get a chance to watch first-round draft pick Micah Parsons. As the favorite to win Defensive Rookie of the Year, let’s see if he lives up to the hype. Let’s hope so as the Cowboys defense was painful to watch last season.
Dallas Cowboys coming off losing season look to improve with defensive and coaching changes
The Dallas Cowboys haven’t had a winning season or playoff berth since 2018, as much as it pains me to say. The Cowboys finished last season with a 6-10 record, putting them at third in the NFC East.
Tonight’s game marks coach Mike McCarthy’s first preseason game with the team after joining last year, a much overdue head coach change after Jason Garrett’s 10-season tenure. This will be a pivotal season for McCarthy. He finished his first year as coach of the Cowboys with an unimpressive .375 record, 3rd in the NFC East.
Quarterback Dak Prescott suffered from a broken ankle early in the 2020 season and was out for the rest of the year. They still remained contenders for the playoffs, but were truly upsetting on defense, allowing for 473 points. When the season was over, the Cowboys released defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula (again, couldn’t have happened sooner). This season, they’ve got new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and are bringing back the Cover 3. We also saw most draft resources and free agents used on defense. If the Cowboys want to even have a chance at a winning season this year, they had to make defensive changes.
