The Arizona Cardinals are going to be playing the first game of the 2012 NFL preseason when they trek up to Canton Ohio to face the New Orleans Saints. The game will be Sunday August 5th on the NFL Network at 5 p.m. in Arizona. Arizona has gone 1-1-1 in previous Hall of Fame Game contests.
The Hall of Fame game is known for being the contest commemorating the newest batch of nominees in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Arizona and New Orleans will take the field just after the newest class of enshrinees – Jack Butler, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Curtis Martin and Willie Roaf – are formally enshrined into the Hall of Fame during ceremonies held at Fawcett Stadium located in Canton on Saturday, Aug. 4.
