Philip Rivers to start 240th consecutive regular-season game


#Getty #Images

#Colts quarterback #Philip #Rivers will do something on #Sunday that he’s done for 15 years in a row: #Start all 16 games in a season.

#By doing that, #Rivers will start his 240th consecutive regular-season game, tying him with former #Vikings center #Mick #Tingelhoff for the third-most in NFL history.

#Only former #Vikings defensive end #Jim #Marshall, with 270 consecutive starts, and #Hall of #Fame quarterback #Brett #Favre, with 297 consecutive starts, have started more games in a row.

#Rivers would have to play four more years without missing a game to break #Favre’s record. #Given that #Rivers is already talking about the possibility that #Sunday could be his last game, it seems likely that #Favre’s record is safe.

#No other active players have started even 200 games in a row, so it will be years before anyone approaches #Rivers and #Favre territory.
