NFL: Brett Favre's starting streak comes to an end

By Kyle Fitta     Dec 13, 2010 in Sports
Brett Favre, future Hall of Famer and the Minnesota Vikings quarter, has suffered another dramatic tragedy this year: his 297-game starting streak has come to an end.
Brett Favre, 41, has gone through a lot of detrimental things to not only his reputation, but his body as well. Favre's streak became questionable right before the big re-debut of Randy Moss joining the Vikings as Favre, Moss and the Vikings were taking on the Jets, when Brett Favre was proven guilty of sexting to a Jets' former employ, Jenn Sterger. In the Jets' game, Favre injured his elbow and afterwards was diagnosed with carpal tunnel. A few weeks after that, Brett Favre fractured his foot against his former team, Greenbay Packers. Then against the Patriots, he badly bruised his jaw. However, despite all of these things that happened to Favre, he still started every game this year, including last week's game against the Bills, where he got hurt after his first play of the game, until this weeks game.
It was stated that Brett Favre wouldn't play this Sunday against the Giants, but the game was cancelled because of the blizzard like conditions in Minnesota, giving Brett Farve nearly twenty-four hours left to heal up. Right before the game, though, Brett Farve wasn't cleared to play, so Jackson, former starting quarter-back for Vikings, got his first start since 2008. After 19 seasons, 297 starts, Farve's streak has finally come to an end.
