Since three of the key pieces are already going to be there, it only makes sense that the Packers and the Colts will open the season in the Hall of Fame Game.
The expected news was made official Tuesday, with the Packers and Colts to kick off the exhibition season with an Aug. 7 game in Canton, Ohio.
It’s going to be a big weekend for those two teams anyway, with Brett Favre, Marvin Harrison and Tony Dungy to be enshrined in the Hall that weekend.
Now, Green Bay and Indy get the privilege (?) of starting camp a week early and an extra preseason game.
