Brett Favre is once again Sports Illustrated’s cover boy. 

A picture of the Packers quarterback stepping back to pass in the midst of a blizzard that rolled into Green Bay during the Packers 42-20 victory over Seattle last weekend graces the front of this week’s issue of the magazine. Favre also appeared on the cover on Dec. 10, when he was named Sportsman of the Year. 

In all, it’s the eighth time that Favre has been on SI’s cover since he became the Packers’ starting quarterback in 1992. During that same stretch, the Packers have been featured on the cover 14 times.

The issue will begin showing up in subscriber’s mailboxes today and will soon be available on newsstands.
