Is Brett Favre's streak about to end?

Brett Favre admitted after last night's 28-24 loss in Green Bay that his record 291-game starting streak might be in danger.

Favre threw one touchdown and had three interceptions in the loss, and he aggravated an ankle injury that caused him to limp badly throughout the second half. "Who knows?" Favre said when asked if he could play in next week's game at New England. "Really, who knows? I hope I do. It'll be tough to get over this loss, as it's tough to get over any loss. But I've got to find a way to do it."

Favre said his ankle will be the determining factor.

"The reality is, if I can play but not be effective, then it's not worth playing. I hope I use good judgment. We'll see. I'm no spring chicken anymore. I don't heal as quickly. I know the heart's in the right place though. I know I left it on the field. It's just disappointing it didn't work our way."

With last night's loss, the Vikings dropped to 2-4, while the Packers pulled into a first-place tie with the Bears at 4-3.
