(Newser) – Brett Favre's record-setting streak for most consecutive starts is dead at 297: Even with an extra day of rest, Minnesota's aging quarterback is listed as inactive for tonight's game against the Giants, reports ESPN. Favre had previously told ESPN that if the game had been played as scheduled, he wouldn't have been able to play, and Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said earlier today Favre was "doubtful." Favre began his streak on Sept. 27, 1992, in a win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
