Giants Will Play Bills in Hall of Fame Game

The Giants now know when their first game of 2014 will be, albeit a preseason game. 

The Giants will participate in the annual Hall of Fame Game, a traditional highlight to NFL Hall of Fame week. The Giants will play the Buffalo Bills in the contest, marking the fifth time Big Blue will play in the game. 

The last time the Giants played in the Hall of Fame Game was 2002 against the Houston Texans. This will be the first time that the Giants will play the Bills in the HOF contest. 

In a way the match-up is very fitting, since former Bills wide receiver, Andre Reed, and Giants defensive end Michael Strahan are both getting enshrined into the Hall of Fame that weekend. 

Some might not like the fact that this now means that both the Giants and Bills will play five preseason games this year, but, to be honest both coaching staffs probably will welcome the extra work after the mess that was 2013 for both franchises. 

The game will be played August 3 at 8:00 p.m. and will be televised nationally on NBC.
