The 2020 NFL season ended in disappointment for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who quickly fell apart after an impressive 11-0 start. Now they'll be back to action in the season curtain-raiser hoping to make it 4-3 in their HOF game appearances.
The Dallas Cowboys come from a poor 6-10 season last year, when they have had to deal with Dak Prescott's injury. The defense was the main issue for Dallas, though, as they conceded an average of 29.4 points per game.
These two decorated NFL teams have a long history of facing each other, and this will be also the seventh time they play in the Hall of Fame game, both holding the same record (3-3). Who will emerge victorious from this game?
