Brett Favre Inactive For Vikings; Consecutive Games Streak Ends At 297

After nearly two decades of consecutive games started, Brett Favre will sit. The Minnesota Vikings announced their inactive for Monday night's game against the New York Giants and Favre's name was on it, which means he will not play.

Favre currently holds the record for consecutive games started. That streak now ends at 297 games. Colts QB Peyton Manning takes over as the new active leader.

Favre has ankle, chest and shoulder injuries and was knocked out of the Vikings Week 13 game. Favre said this weekend that he didn't think he would be able to play if the game had been on Sunday, but it was later rescheduled due to the Metrodome roof collapse. Even after the game was rescheduled, he said he didn't think he would be able to play.

Here's a photo of the inactive list the Vikings submitted to the league.
