Cleveland Browns, New York Jets to open 2023 NFL Season in Hall of Fame Game
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 8
The matchup, which kicks off the National Football League's 104th season in the city where the League was born, will take place in Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium — adjacent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
It will be the Browns' sixth time playing in the Hall of Fame Game. Their most recent appearance in Canton came in 1999 — the first game the franchise played after resuming operations. The Jets have played twice in Canton but not since 1992.
Browns great JOE THOMAS, along with Jets legends JOE KLECKO and DARRELLE REVIS, will be enshrined two days later as members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2023. RONDÉ BARBER, DON CORYELL, CHUCK HOWLEY, KEN RILEY, ZACH THOMAS and DeMARCUS WARE also will be enshrined at the annual ceremony, which is set for Saturday, Aug. 5, inside Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.
