Brett Favre jersey, 2005

Brett Favre's Packers Jersey


Just a week after the death of Reggie White, his former teammate and friend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre wore this jersey to lead his team to a 31-14 rout of the Chicago Bears. The Bears game marked Favre's 205th consecutive regular season game, upping his league-leading record to 89 games. Since taking over as quarterback in 1992, Favre has not missed another game.
