Howie Long Has Mixed Emotions as Sons Meet on NFL Field

Howie Long expects some strange emotions when he watches Sunday's game between the St. Louis Rams and Chicago Bears.

The Hall of Fame defensive end and longtime studio analyst will be attendance to watch his two sons face off against each other for the first time in their professional careers. Chris Long is in his sixth year as a defensive end for the Rams, while Kyle is a rookie offensive guard for the Bears.

"I'm sure there will be some range of emotions," Howie Long said earlier this week, according to the St. Louis-Post Dispatch. "I'm not sure what that will be, we'll have to see when we cross that bridge. ... It's exciting. It's scary. It's a lot of different emotions."

Siblings have been teammates and opponents at the highest levels of sports for years. Quarterbacks Peyton Manning (Denver Broncos) and Eli Manning (New York Giants) have squared off a few times over the years, and punting brothers Dustin Colquitt (Broncos) and Britton Colquitt (Kansas City) opposed one another Nov. 17.

In last season's Super Bowl, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh beat the San Francisco 49ers, a team coached by his younger brother Jim Harbaugh.

But the Longs' situation is unique in that the two men will be on the field at the same time, and can have a direct effect on the other's performance.

"I hope both play well, I hope both stay healthy and can embrace it after the game," Howie Long said.
