The 2020 Pro Football Game in Canton was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic that pretty much defined the entire year around the NFL world.
With more Americans getting vaccinated, the league is planning on welcoming full houses for the 2021 campaign.
While that might be up in the air depending on the trajectory of the virus, Thursday’s Pro Football Hall of Fame Game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Ohio was absolutely packed.
Talk about a completely different vibe from what we saw during a 2020 NFL season that saw mostly empty stadiums.
It also appears that the atmosphere inside the stadium ahead of kickoff was absolutely electric. It obviously doesn’t hurt that two of the most-historic franchises in the NFL are unofficially opening up the 2021 season with some of the greatest players each organization has seen getting inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Heck, this moment between Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and two-time Super Bowl champion Jimmy Johnson was everything.
