Eli Manning Making 100th Consecutive Start
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Brett Favre isn’t the only one with a streak of note heading into Sunday’s game between the Minnesota Vikings (5-7) and New York Giants.
While many wonder whether a shoulder injury will prevent the Vikings’ quarterback from extending his streak of 297 consecutive starts, Giants quarterback Eli Manning will make his 100th consecutive start with much less fanfare as New York (8-4) tries to keep pace with Philadelphia in the NFC East.
Besides Favre and Manning, the only other NFL quarterbacks to start 100 straight games are Eli’s big brother, Peyton Manning of the Colts, Tom Brady of the Patriots, Ron Jaworski of the Eagles and Joe Ferguson of the Bills.
Dan Marino of the Dolphins would have qualified, but missed the lockout games.
