DETROIT (AP) -- Brett Favre's record consecutive starts streak ended at 297 on Monday when he did not suit up for the Minnesota Vikings' game against the New York Giants. The streak, dating back to 1992, ended because of a right shoulder injury on Minnesota first series Dec. 5 against Buffalo. Jeff Anderson, a Vikings spokesman, said the 41-year-old Favre was inactive. The Vikings hoped Favre, who also has had a broken foot and elbow tendinitis this season, could play after the game was delayed from Sunday when the Metrodome roof collapsed. That forced the game to be moved to Ford Field, but it was not enough time for Favre to get healthy enough to play. Tarvaris Jackson will start for Minnesota.
