A shoulder injury has put an end to Brett Favre's NFL-record regular-season start streak at 297. The date was Sept. 20, 1992.
That's the last time Brett Favre played but did not start a game in the NFL.
More than 18 years later Favre, finally, will sit one out.

Seymour Dick needs to go away for good.
312 when counting playoff games as well.
Couldn’t have happened to a better queen.
You gotta tip your hat to him though. His streak is all the more impressive considering it’s in the most pressure-packed position in the most violent game in American sports. I would say that his streak is even more impressive than Ripken’s or A.C. Green’s streak in the NBA.
I'm sorry. As hard as I try, I just can't seem to shed one damned tear for Brett Farve.
Who? Oh the old guy who just wanted to get his name in the Guinness Book.
....he’s really cheapened his legacy these last few years with the endless comeback drama....I used to like him a lot more....we should have wised up when the Packers cut him...they were telling us something with that move.
That’s too bad.
I wanted him to get another start - and get injured again!
I predict retirement isn't going to be pretty for this man. Especially with his drinking and womanizing issues.
His streak was kept alive by a compliant coach that let him play with a bad thumb on his passing arm. He stunk on ice, but he played. The farve found out he was more important than team, and it stuck.
Arthur Moats. He is the Buffalo Bill that put the hit on Favre to end the streak. In case the trivia question ever comes up.
start the game spike the ball... then leave waaalaaa keeps the streak
I predict retirement isn’t going to be pretty for this man.
It will be sort of like Norm Van Brocklin Meets Pee-Wee Herman
what on earth could be better in retirement than womanizing and drinking??????espe cially when you have millions of dollars
