Brett Favre Consecutive Games Streak Ending Gives Tarvaris Jackson Start For Vikings

Brett Favre's consecutive games streak is now over. The Minnesota Vikings listed him as inactive for Monday night's game against the New York Giants. The Vikings (and the Giants) have already had to deal with a lot since this game was originally scheduled on Sunday before the Metrodome roof collapsed. Now that his consecutive games streak has been snapped, Tarvaris Jackson becomes the starting quarterback for the Vikings.

Jackson replaced Favre last week when he went down early in the game. Jackson completed 15-of-22 passes for 187 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.

How long will Jackson be the starter? There's already been speculation of whether Favre will end the season on injured reserve. The Vikings have yet to make that decision. They have just three games remaining after Monday night against the Giants.

Favre hasn't practiced this week so it's been all Jackson in practice. We'll see if the Vikings go with a heavier dose of the run to take the pressure off of him.

For his career, Jackson has completed 59 percent of his passes with 24 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. He was originally a Vikings second round pick in 2006. Now he has the task of replacing a football legend.
