Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre celebrates after a touchdown during the 2008 playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Green Bay Packers will hold a halftime ceremony to honor Brett Favre's induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during their game against the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 16.

It will be the second straight season the Packers will honor Favre during halftime of a home game. They unveiled his No. 4 on the Lambeau Field façade during halftime of the Packers' loss to the Chicago Bears last season on Thanksgiving night.

The Packers also will wear a re-creation of their 1937-48 uniform against the Cowboys. The blue-and-gold jersey with a gold yoke pays tribute to the Packers' two championships won during that stretch.

The Oct. 16 game will feature the annual Coats for Kids collection prior to kickoff. Fans attending the game will have the opportunity to donate new and gently used winter coats for distribution to needy children through area Salvation Army units. and follow him on Twitter @ByRyanWood
