If you watched Thursday Night Football, you may have noticed the Pro Football Hall of Fame patches that the Broncos and Raiders were wearing. The Giants and the rest of the NFL will be wearing the same ones for the next two weeks, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Hall, which opened on September 7, 1963 in Canton, Ohio.
All clubs with home games during Weeks 14 and 15 will also feature in-stadium banners, while there will be moments during broadcasts recognizing and honoring Hall of Famers who are present at the game.
“We are pleased to celebrate the great men who built this game as well as 50 years of the Hall where they are enshrined and honored,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said earlier this week. “The Pro Football Hall of Fame preserves the history of our game and is an important resource for educating generations of fans.”
Speaking of Canton, three Giants greats are up for enshrinement in the 2013 class: defensive end Michael Strahan, coach Bill Parcells and the late general manager George Young.
