Yes, it is true. Back on Sept. 20, 1992 in a game against the Bengals at Lambeau Field, Brett Favre came on in relief of Don Majikowski and picked apart the Bengals defense. In this great old video, Costas, Buddy Ryan and O.J. Simpson talk about the questionable defense by rookie head coach David Shula and interview Favre as well.
They even make sure to let you know it is prononced “Farve” despite the spelling. Enjoy!

Cincinnati tried to get their revenge on Favre years later, as a dumbass fan ran onto the fied at Paul Brown Stadium and stole the ball from Brett. This video shows an excellent view of the fan getting crushed by security after his drunken jaunt. Try to ignore the music.
