Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 31 during the NFL's Week 6 action.

Unitas holds what is commonly referred to as pro foobtall's "unbreakable record" of 47 straight games with a touchdown pass. The streak extended from 1956-1960. 

Marino's 30-game streak took place over the 1985-1987 seasons.  Favre passed Dave Krieg's total of 28 consecutive games (with Seattle from 1983-1985) earlier this season.
