Brett Favre's NFL record of 297 straight regular-season starts is over. The streak started when Favre made his first career start vs the Steelers in Week 4 of the 1992 season on September 27. In that game, Favre completed 14 of 19 passes for 210 yards and 2 TD in a 17-3 win. When Lou Gehrig ended his 2,130-game streak, the Yankees were in Detroit to play the Tigers. Favre ends his 297-game streak -- also in Detroit (albeit vs the Giants).
It has been 7,024 days since Brett Favre was on a team and he was not the starting quarterback. That was a Packers 24-23 home win vs the Bengals on September 20, 1992. Favre entered that game in the 1st quarter for an injured Don Majkowski and completed 22 of 39 passes for 289 yards with 2 TD. His consecutive starts streak began the following week.
