Before Sunday, only three NFL players had played in at least 250 consecutive games. As of Sunday, London Fletcher made it a quartet.
Fletcher joins punter Jeff Feagles (352), quarterback Brett Favre (299), and defensive end Jim Marshall (282) as the only men to play 250 straight games.
With Fletcher’s 209th straight start, he also passed Derrick Brooks for the longest starting streak by a linebacker in league history.
Now in his 16th NFL season after being undrafted, Fletcher won a Super Bowl with the Rams in 1999 and also played for the Bills. He has played seven years with Washington.
