Favre yesterday told ESPN he would not have been able to play if the game went on as scheduled yesterday. Favre later texted a USA Today reporter, saying he still thinks he won’t be able to play tonight. That would end his starting streak.
“I don’t think it will be 2 bad,” Favre wrote. “ ‘U know what[?] I kinda look forward to just chillin for a change.”
Manning’s 100th consecutive start comes against a team he has never beaten and against one of the few quarterbacks in NFL history who could dwarf Manning’s streak. Manning is winless in four games against the Vikings.
