Football is back, at least a football like substance known as the preseason is back, but it's better than any of the football happening since February ... which is none. Sunday night is the Hall of Fame game, the preseason kickoff. This time it's between the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins.
The Rams will play one of these teams during the regular season, the Cowboys in Dallas in Week 3. This Cowboys team won't look much like that one, but you can at least get some idea about who the Rams will face.
St. Louis was supposed to play in this game, in 2011, but the lockout cancelled it.
