The Bears and Ravens each had a first-ballot Hall of Famer in this year’s class, and now their fans have another reason to travel to Canton for the induction ceremony.

The NFL announced today that the Bears and Ravens will meet in the Hall of Fame Game on August 2.

Chicago and Baltimore are easy choices for the NFL, as Brian Urlacher and Ray Lewis were both selected to the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. Plenty of fans from both cities will make the trip to Ohio for the game, and for the enshrinement ceremony.

In addition to Urlacher and Lewis, this year’s class consists of Bobby Beathard, Robert Brazile, Brian Dawkins, Jerry Kramer, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens.

  1. With a whole new coaching staff, new systems, and hopefully a significant amount of new/better players on the roster, an extra preseason game wouldn’t hurt the Bears. Unless of course half of them get injured.

  2. Finally the best possible match up of the pre – season way to go guys…NFL you’ rrrrrre the

    best. Protect that shield baby… anything for the Reuben he didn’t do nuffin!!

  3. Lordy, how I loathe the seemingly interminable preseason. It just goes on and on and on… By the time the regular season starts, it feels like we’ve had six months of these stupid exhibition games. When will the NFL get smart? The league needs do this: 1) eliminate two of the preseason games and 2) add two games to the regular season. That way we’ll still get exactly the same number of games, only two more of them will actually mean something. Charging full price tickets for exhibition games that count for nothing is a blatant ripoff. The starters don’t play much, if at all, and people are paying full prices to watch wannabes and camp fodder. It’s ludicrous and insulting. If I held season tickets, I would be royally pissed off at having to pay full price for four lousy exhibition games.

  4. You all are going to be so thirsty for football that you’ll sit on your couch so fast to watch this game that you’ll get couch burn.

  5. If this game was free and within walking distance, I would not bother and I am a long time Bears fan. Pre-season games suck!!!!

    Urlacher’s bust better be bald, those hair plugs make him look like a defendant on Law and Order

    Good one, but I would go with SVU specifically.

  7. It’s obvious that they want to fill the stands with Bears and Raven’s fans. That’s great for all the Brian and Ray fans for the induction ceremonies. That’s the only thing that this game is about. I have to agree with the previous post that there should only be two pre-season games. Meaningless games are just that, meaningless. the only thing that happens are injuries….for what?
