NFL Hall of Fame Game 2018: Time, TV schedule/live stream: Date: Thursday, August 2, 2018 Time: 8 p.m. ET Location: Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, Canton, Ohio TV: NBC The Bears are installing a new offense under first-year coach Matt Nagy. Chicago’s second-year quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky, will be taking his first major steps running the new scheme Nagy brought from Kansas City. He seems unconcerned that the second overall pick in the 2017 draft will be overmatched — even though Trubisky has been an interception machine in practices. “Our guys have picked up everything that we’ve asked them to do,” Nagy said. “There have been mistakes, but they’re way ahead of the learning curve. So that’s exciting and it tells me that once we get to the regular season we can do more than I initially thought. But we will be growing throughout the season.” As for the Ravens, don’t look for Joe Flacco in this one. Few if any of the Ravens’ starters at the offensive skill positions are likely to get much action tonight. The Hall of Fame game will provide an opportunity for Baltimore coach John Harbaugh and his staff to look at first-round draft pick Lamar Jackson and veteran Robert Griffin III, who is attempting a comeback after not playing last year. “We have that set,” Harbaugh said of the QB plans for the Hall of Fame game. “I never really talk about that. We just go do it. But we have the quarterback rotation set, and then we’ll organize the rest of it … There’ll be some guys who won’t play in that game, probably you might guess the guys who haven’t practiced as much that first week.”
