The national nightmare is over. From today until Sunday, Feb. 12, 2024, professional football is back in our lives and it all starts tonight with the NFL’s Hall of Fame game.

Thursday night’s exhibition game pits the Cleveland Browns against the New York Jets. Unfortunately, the game will be played without some of football’s biggest stars. The Jets have already announced quarterback Aaron Rodgers will sit out Thursday night’s matchup. Browns’ quarterback Deshaun Watson won’t make an appearance either.
