Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants in Hall of Fame Game 2014

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Andre Reed and Michael Strahan are part of the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, and the Bills and Giants will celebrate that fact by playing in the Hall of Fame Game on August 3.

If you simply can't get enough preseason football, we have good news for you: the Buffalo Bills will be playing in this year's Hall of Fame Game, on August 3 in Canton, against the New York Giants. The game will be televised nationally at 8PM ET on NBC, as it is every year.

The news is not particularly surprising, considering that both the Bills and the Giants have former players being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this fall. Andre Reed, of course, is going in for the Bills, while star pass rusher Michael Strahan is an inductee for the Giants.

Buffalo last played in the Hall of Fame Game in 2009, when team owner Ralph Wilson and defensive end Bruce Smith were inducted into the Hall. The Bills lost that game to the Tennessee Titans, 21-18, in a game remembered now not just for the fact that two of Buffalo's all-time greats were enshrined that weekend, but because of this fake punt play that made the Bills look stupid on national television a little more than three months before they'd fire head coach Dick Jauron in-season.

The news means that the Bills will play in five preseason games this fall, instead of the customary four. Buckle up, Bills fans - the offseason just got a little longer.
