Arthur Moats Officially Ends Brett Favre's Consecutive Games Played Streak

Brett Favre started 297 consecutive games at quarterback from 1992 through 2010. Then he played against Arthur Moats, an unassuming rookie sixth-round pick out of James Madison, and one big hit ended arguably the best consecutive games played streak in the history of sports.

Favre, dealing with a shoulder injury that knocked him out of the Buffalo Bills' 38-14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings a week ago yesterday, is officially inactive for tonight's game against the New York Giants. His incredible streak has reached its conclusion, and ESPN's Adam Schefter and countless others have pointed out, Moats - who is making a name for himself for other (better) reasons, too - will now be the answer to a trivia question.

Drayton Florence has a shot at joining Moats in that trivia question territory. ESPN's Ed Werder reports that people close to Favre believe that the grizzled signal-caller would prefer to go on Injured Reserve, which would end his season (and career), allow him to collect the remainder of his yearly salary, and avoid the media attention surrounding the Jenn Sterger saga. Should Favre get his wish, or simply not play again this season, Florence can claim that he ended Favre's career with an interception.

Let the demise of Favre's streak be a lesson to all: don't cross the Moats.
