Favre Streak Is Done

The streak is over. Brett Favre is listed as inactive for Minnesota’s Monday night game vs. the Giants at Ford Field.

He has been battling ankle and chest injuries all season, but a right (throwing) shoulder sprain was too much to overcome.

His consecutive games streak will stand at 297, an NFL record for a quarterback, and 321 straight games including playoffs. Tarvaris Jackson will start tonight against New York.

The Vikings had listed Favre as doubtful for most of the week, and the injury hurt too much for Favre to even take pregame warm-ups in Detroit.

Coach Leslie Frazier made the call about an hour and half before kickoff. He also listed wide receiver Percy Harvin as inactive due to recurring problem with migraine headaches.

Favre made his first of 297 consecutive starts as a Green Bay Packer on Sept. 27, 1992, taking over for Don Majkowski.

There’s a current NFL quarterback with a chance of breaking Favre’s record. The Colts’ Peyton Manning has started every game in his 13-year NFL career, 205 regular-season games through Week 14. That puts Manning on pace to surpass Favre’s record during the 2016 season, when Manning would be 40.

Earlier in the day, NBC announced that Week 16 flex scheduling would move the Vikings game at Philadelphia to Sunday Night Football. That could be the final opportunity Favre gets to play for a national audience in prime time.

If Favre is healthy enough to play, his last career game could come back in Ford Field against the Lions in Week 17.

What do you think – have we seen the last of the great Brett Favre? Keep in mind, doctors are saying, with just this sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, he’ll need at least 2-4 weeks to heal.
