Game one, preseason football (Chicago Bears vs. Baltimore Ravens) begins this Thursday night on CBS TV.

Two great middle linebackers (Brian Urlacher and Ray Lewis) will be inducted in the Hall of Fame (HOF) this Saturday; hence why these teams are playing.

5 PM PST/8 PM EST (check local listings for times) is the Thursday (Aug 2) game.

2018 HOF Inductees:

"On Saturday, August 4 at 7 p.m. ET, the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony takes place in Canton, Ohio. It will be a great event that will see eight new members inducted into the Hall of Fame. The Class of 2018 includes Bobby Beathard, Robert Brazile, Brian Dawkins, Jerry Kramer, Ray Lewis, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, and Brian Urlacher."

Moss and Owens in the same year? Odd. I heard Owens is pulling some stunt to hold his own induction and is boycotting the HOF induction.
