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.
