Cowboys to watch on defense in tonight's Hall of Fame Game

Cowboys to watch on defense in tonight's Hall of Fame Game

It's ostensibly an National Football League game featuring NFL-like action, and the start of a new season is something to celebrate, if you're into that sort of thing.

Dallas and Arizona will each play five preseason games in 2017, which is usually the case with teams selected to the Hall of Fame Game.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he's interested in seeing how the backup quarterback will play in an actual game situation rather than just on the practice field.

-Defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, the Cardinals' 2016 first-round pick, is looking to prove he's worthy of more playing time in 2017 after only appearing in five games past year. Besides, let's not forget the bigger picture - football is back. Since 2014, the Cowboys have not played their anticipated starting quarterback in the first preseason game.

You can catch the Hall of Fame Game on NBC and the NFL Network at 8pm EST tonight.

Both teams will be represented in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2017.

-Linebacker and former Arizona Wildcats star Scooby Wright III was the Browns' seventh-round pick past year, but the Cardinals signed Wright off the Browns' practice squad late last season.

"Kellen Moore has shown the 'it, ' he's got the instincts, he's got the anticipation, he knows what's going on, he gives me and us a great feeling about basically improving", owner Jerry Jones said in May. And we have to obviously manage him because if you left it all up to Jaylon, he wouldn't come out.

Here's everything you need to know to watch the game, or follow along as we bring you the latest score, live updates, photos and video highlights in the comments section below.

The Cardinals will hold back their starters, so the Cowboys will likely follow suit.
