The annual Bishop's Charities Game kicks off at 7:00 PM at Lambeau Field as the Packers meet the Indianapolis Colts. With this being the third pre-season game, starters for both teams are expected to play the entire first half. The reigning AFC champs will be a test for the Packers on both sides of the ball. The Green Bay defense, utilizing several young players because of injury, must deal with Peyton Manning and his passing attack while the Packers offensive line will be challenged by a pair of premier pass rushers in Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis. NFL rosters must be trimmed to 75 players by Monday.
