The decision was a no-brainer for the Hall of Fame.

Longtime Packers legend Brett Favre being enshrined into the Hall will bring plenty of Green Bay fans to Canton, Ohio. The Colts boast two inductees in former coach Tony Dungy and receiver Marvin Harrison.

The rest of the Hall of Fame's class of 2016 includes owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., offensive linemen Orlando Pace and Dick Stanfel, quarterback Ken Stabler and linebacker/defensive end Kevin Greene.

The game will kick at 8 p.m. ET at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.

It's the fifth appearance for both the Packers and Colts in the Hall of Fame Game.

Green Bay and Indianapolis are also scheduled to meet at Lambeau Field during the 2016 regular season. The NFL will announce the full 2016 regular season schedule later this spring.
