The world will get to watch the Packers ceremony for Brett Favre on Thanksgiving

favreThe Green Bay Packers will host the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving on Primetime, and that is the same day Brett Favre will have his jersey retired in Green Bay. 

Favre, who faced the Bears 32 times during his playing career, will be the sixth player in Packers history to be honored in that fashion.

“It will be an incredible honor to be in Lambeau Field on Thanksgiving night with Packers fans and have my name and number placed among the greatest players in Packers history,” Favre said in a release from the team. “With the great history and tradition of the Packers-Bears rivalry, and remembering the great matchups we had during my career, it seems only fitting to have Chicago as the opponent.”
