Various ticket packages, featuring extra events with Hall of Famers and premium seating, are already on sale through the Hall of Fame.
The Baltimore Ravens will face the Chicago Bears in the Hall of Fame Game, the National Football League announced on Tuesday. Many NFL analysts felt that Urlacher would have to wait until his second year eligible because of the presence of Lewis, but Urlacher was given the honor of being a first ballot hall of famer, despite another dominant linebacker on the ballot.
The Bears last played in the Hall of Fame Game in 2005, beating the Dolphins in Canton.
Festivities will continue with the Enshrinees' Gold Jacket Dinner on Friday, August 3; the Enshrinees Roundtable on Sunday, Aug. 5; and Sunday's Concert for Legends. Former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is also among those in the Hall of Fame Class of 2018. While we do now get to watch more Bears football, which is great, the Hall Of Fame Game is a great opportunity for young players to shine bright on the national stage, and to make a name for themselves. Lewis, who played 17 seasons in Baltimore, joins Jonathan Ogden as the only Ravens in the Hall of Fame. He helped the Ravens to two Super Bowl titles and was named the game's MVP in Super Bowl XXXV. Lewis was named All-Pro eight times, voted to 12 Pro Bowls and selected to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 2000s. Urlacher played for the Bears from 2000-2012, and he and Lewis were often compared to each other throughout their careers.
