We've heard it before, but Brett Favre announced his career in the NFL is over after the Vikings lost to the Lions 20-10 in Detroit.

Favre was inactive for the game despite passing his final post-concussion test.

"It's time, I know it's time," Favre said, adding that he has "no regrets."

Favre would leave the game as the NFL's completions, passing yards, and passing touchdowns.

"I'm done," Favre said. "It's never easy for any player. Great group of guys. Didn't workout this year but great group of guys."

The Vikings convinced Favre to come back for one more chance at greatness after coming up just short in the NFC championship game last January. Instead, he and the Vikings struggled to a 3-7 start, which cost head coach Brad Childress his job. Favre also saw his 297-game consecutive-starts streak and sat out the past two games after suffering a concussion via the Bears' Corey Wootton in a sack in Week 15.
