Favre getting sacked more often
Posted Sep. 30 at 08:36 AM
Brett Favre has started 272 consecutive games. That's due in part to luck, in part to toughness, and in part to his knack for staying out of harm's way He usually is one of the league's least-sacked quarterbacks.
That hasn't been the case this year, though. Favre has been sacked 9 times in three games, putting him on pace to be sacked 48 times. That's a big increase; he hasn't been sacked more than 30 times in a season since prior to the 2001 season. And he's never been sacked more than 40 times.
If the Vikings can't do a better job of limiting the number of hits Favre takes, there's a good chance his consecutive starts streak will end this season.
