Going into the season, Don Majkowski was the starting quarterback for the Packers. Favre played a little in the Packers' second game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers were leading 17–0 at halftime when head coach Mike Holmgren benched Majkowski in favor of Favre, who didn't have a good game that day.

On his first regular season play as a Packer, Favre threw a pass that was deflected and caught by himself. Favre was tackled and the completion went for a loss of seven yards. The Packers ended up losing the game 31–3. Favre managed only 73 yards passing.

Bengal fans remember that Brett Favre's coming out party came at the expense of Cincinnati in the third game of the 1992 season.

Here is what happened in Week Three.
