During his streak, Brett Favre played six games (not including the Super Bowl) against the Denver Broncos. He played five of those games as a member of the Green Bay Packers and the other one as a New York Jet in 2008. He went 4-2 in those games and completed 56 percent of his passes (103-of-184) for 1,329 yards. However, he managed to throw only eight touchdown passes to 10 interceptions. His career QB rating against the Denver Broncos is 70.7.

Most Denver Broncos fans will remember Brett Favre during Super Bowl XXXII, when he threw for three touchdown passes and 256 yards. As we all know, the Broncos won their first Super Bowl that night, 31-24, on the strength of three Terrell Davis touchdowns and a gutsy John Elway helicopter spin for a touchdown.
