The game usually features teams that are closely associated with some of the people being inducted into the Hall of Fame in that particular year.

For instance, the 2022 game will feature the Las Vegas Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars. Tony Boselli, a long-time member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, is being inducted into the Hall of Fame, as is Cliff Branch, who played for the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders from 1972-1985.
