A Look At Fletcher And Brooks

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 11, 2013 – 10:03 am

London Fletcher

Last Thursday in Minnesota, London Fletcher started his 208th consecutive regular season game, tying Tampa Bay stalwart Derrick Brooks for the most by an NFL linebacker all-time.

Brooks, who retired after the 2008 season, was one of 126 nominees for induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced in September. The linebacker is a solid bet to be a first-ballot member of the hall.

With Fletcher one game away from breaking Brooks’ record for consecutive regular season starts, let’s compare the decorated career for both players.

The Fletcher File

  • 16 NFL Seasons (active)
  • Started 233 games. Played in 249.
  • 1,360 tackles, 634 assists
  • 23 interceptions
  • 19 forced fumbles
  • Three touchdowns
  • Four Pro Bowls (2009-2012)
  • Super Bowl XXXIV Champion (St. Louis Rams)

The Brooks Book

  • 14 NFL Seasons
  • Started 221 games. Played in 224.
  • 1,301 tackles, 414 assists
  • 25 interceptions
  • 24 forced fumbles
  • Seven touchdowns
  • 11 Pro Bowls (1997-2006, 2008)
  • Super Bowl XXXVII Champion (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
