Simply Favrelous: Brett Makes First NFL Start
Sept. 27, 1992 – Brett Favre makes his first NFL start at quarterback one week after leading the Green Bay Packers to an exciting, last-minute, 24-23 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. This time the cannon-armed field general disposes of the Pittsburgh Steelers, 17-3, to even the team’s record at 2-2. “Today he played like a veteran,” Steelers safety Carnell Lake says of the Packers’ young quarterback. “He showed that he knows what he’s doing out there.” Favre is on target completing 14 of 19 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns. His passer rating of 144.6 is one of the best in team history.
