CANTON, Ohio (WJW)– Football is back in Canton for the 2021 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game.


Another COVID-19 variant has surfaced — Here’s what local health experts have to say

Last year’s enshrinement and game were put on hold because of the pandemic. But Thursday night, players and fans returned to Tom Benson Stadium. It’s also the first preseason game since 2019.

The Dallas Cowboys, minus much of their starters, faced the Pittsburgh Steelers, led by backup quarterback Mason Rudolph.

On their first possession, Rudolph fumbled and it was recovered by the Cowboys. Garrett Gilbert led Dallas down the field, but couldn’t get them into the end zone. They ended the drive with a field goal. They missed their next field goal attempt to keep the score at 3-0.
