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

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.
