Packers selected for Hall of Fame Game

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

The NFL has selected the Packers to play in this year's Hall of Fame Game to kick off the 2016 preseason. Green Bay will face Indianapolis on Aug. 7 at 7 p.m. CT in Canton, Ohio.

The Packers were selected because Brett Favre will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame the night before the game. Former Colts head coach Tony and receiver Marvin Harrison are also slated for induction.

Due to their participation in this game, the Packers and Colts will play five preseason games this year. The last time Green Bay was included in the Hall of Fame Game was in 2003 when former Packers receiver James Lofton was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
