Favre's 'expectations are to play'

Brett Favre intends to extend his streak to 292 games started.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback expects to start Sunday's game against the New England Patriots, he told ESPN's Ed Werder.

Favre spent much of the week in a walking boot and missed significant practice times because of a broken left ankle.

"My expectations are to play and play well enough for us to have a chance to win this game," Favre told Werder.

But we don't know if Vikings head coach Brad Childress shares that sentiment. Childress has stated he will make the final decision Sunday morning whether Favre or backup Tarvaris Jackson will play.
