Favre's regular-season streak, which reaches 161 when he takes the field today, has rewritten the "ironman" record book for quarterbacks. The runner-up is Philadephia star Ron Jaworski with 116.
It all started in Sept. 1992 when Favre replaced the injured Don Majkowski and led the Packers to a thrilling 24-23 come from behind win over Cincinnati. Who knew then that his 35-yard TD pass to Kittrick Taylor with 13 seconds left would lead to a starting assignment that has become legend.
During that streak, Favre has led the Packers to a 105-55 record. A win today would put Favre at 68-12 at home and boost him back in front of Terry Bradshaw, with whom he's tied at .850 for best career home winning percentage.
Other records are in his reach. Favre is six TDs away from joinging Dan Marino, Fran Tarkenton and Jown Elway in the exclusive 300 touchdown club. Only Elway (300), Tarkenton (342) and Marino (420) stand between Favre and the NFL career TD record. Favre has passed Unitas and Moon this season.
"If I were to outline what I wanted my carer to be like, I couldn't even come close to what I've achieved," Favre said. "It's been a fun 10 years. I just hope there's several more left.
