Dolphins and Cowboys to play in preseason Hall of Fame Game

Publish date:

The Dolphins will play the Cowboys in the NFL's Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 4 in Canton, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Tuesday.

The Cowboys have played in the series four times and hold a 1-3 record; their last appearance was a 16-7 win over the Bengals in 2010. They also played in the only sudden-death occurrence in Hall of Fame Game history -- a loss to the Browns in 1999. The Dolphins are 0-3 in previous visits, with losses to the Bears (2005), Rams (2001) and Eagles (1978).

The new class of Hall of Fame inductees will be introduced into the Hall the day before the game; three of the seven members have ties to the Cowboys or Dolphins (Larry Allen, Bill Parcells, Cris Carter). The other inductees are Curley Culp, Warren Sapp, Jonathan Ogden and Dave Robinson.

This year marks the Hall of Fame's 50th anniversary, and a Golden Reunion Celebration will feature more than 120 Hall of Fame inductees, the largest ever gathering of Hall of Famers.
