The Green Bay Packers game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Oct. 2, is the annual alumni game and will feature halftime introductions of 18 players from the Packers’ 1961 championship team, here celebrating the 50th anniversary of that title season.

The 1961 Green Bay Packers captured the Western Conference title with an 11-3 record and then shut out the New York Giants, 37-0, at Lambeau Field Dec. 31 to earn the NFL title.
