It might still be February, but the NFL season is never far off. The league offered up a reminder Thursday when it announced that the 2014 Hall of Fame game will feature the Bills and the Giants. Mark your calendars -- 158 days to go.

The game is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 3, at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio.

It will be the Bills' fourth appearance in the game, the last coming in 2009 when they met the Titans. Previous trips were in 1974 and 1989. The Giants, meanwhile, played in the first Hall of Fame game back in 1962 and made subsequent appearances in 1972, 1985 and 2002.

On the Saturday before the game, former Bills wide receiver Andre Reed and former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Other inductees include: linebacker Derrick Brooks, punter Ray Guy, defensive end Claude Humphrey, tackle Walter Jones and defensive back Aeneas Williams.
