Brett Favre -- Streak Ends at 297

12/13/2010 8:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brett Favre will not be the starting quarterback for his football team tonight -- for the first time in more than 18 YEARS!

1213_brett_favre_TMZ_BN
Favre's record-setting consecutive starts streak will end at 297 games thanks to a shoulder injury he suffered last week against the Buffalo Bills.

Favre's record is pretty safe ... for now ... the closest active player is Peyton Manning at 205 consecutive games.

Some perspective? Miley Cyrus was not alive the last time Brett didn't start.

Oh, and the answer to the trivia question: Arthur Moats -- the Bills player who tackled and injured Favre ... thereby ending the streak.

as i have said before he should of retired the first time..He has done nothing for any team since his first call too retirement..He is WAY over paid and while being over paid he has threw games away literally..( haveing the highest interceptions in the NFL isn't a great stat too have ) If he retired the first time he would of held in high requard by millions of people now he looks like a smuck..He will never be held in the same reguard as Marino, Montana,Simms, Elway and Aikman..Not too mention what he did too his wife after being a cancer surviver...Everything he has done has been selfish..Just ask his wife..Poor lady..Brent farv-gone

Brett, you came, you played football, you played outside your marriage....time to leave the field (both football field AND womanizing field) and COUNT your gray hairs...bye, bye.

Favre is hot.

Hope he got some. Men like that need to be satisfied.

I think it's a total turn-on that he's confident enough with what he's got to show it off.

TMZ,

Please correct your story, it's Eli Manning, and not Peyton Manning that is next at 205 consecutive games.

Couldn't he just come out and take one snap on a running play and then go out? Would that not preserve the record?

If i were the coach or agent i would be presenting at least a "first play - take a knee" play to keep the streak going.

Some perspective? Miley Cyrus was not alive the last time Brett didn't start. Wow - That is almost mind boggling, especially in the NFL. I guess we can all say what we want but the man has been more than consistent in showing up and doing his best. Win or Lose !

@27 John, Peyton has been playing longer and is therefore next with 205 consecutive starts. I would check facts before posting and telling someone to change their story.
