Favre's Streak Ends At 297.
This weekend, Minnesota Vikings' quarterback Brett Favre did not play against the New York Giants. The right shoulder injury that he suffered a week ago against the Buffalo Bills was too much for the veteran player.
For the first time in 297 games, Favre was unable to start.
But this wasn't the only news out of Minnesota this weekend. Sunday morning, the roof of the Metrodome collapsed under the weight of the snow. Fortunatly enough, nobody was inside the stadium at the time of the collapse and no injuries were reported.
The match scheduled between the Vikings and the Giants was played on Monday night in Detroit. The Giants won the contest rather easily and took away the last playoff spot available for the Vikings.
Brett Favre could return to action before the end of the regular season and it will be the last chance to see Favre in uniform. The Vikings' quarterback is more than likely into his very last moments in the NFL.
I will not miss Favre's final moments in the NFL for nothing in the world. The last twenty years have been wonderful and it was a pleasure to follow him. I will always remember his competitiveness and his toughness through adversity.
The Minnesota Vikings will play the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.
