A brother of Glendale, Ariz. Coming up, from the City of Brotherly Love, another from the Heart of America.
It seems pretty consistent, but Jason Kelce of the Eagles and Travis Kelce of the Chiefs will be out to win at the expense of the other in Super Bowl LVII next Sunday. In honor of their matchup, here’s The Post’s list of the other best sibling combinations in NFL history:
Peyton and Eli Manning: Another of what could soon be three generations of NFL quarterbacks. Payton and Eli both won two Super Bowls and ranked in the top 10 in nearly every career passing category, but Hall of Famer Payton won five MVPs and went 3-0. He now co-hosts the “Manningcast” alternative “Monday Night Football” broadcast.
JJ, Derek and TJ Watt: The recently retired JJ has three Defensive Player of the Year awards to TJ’s one, but TJ shares the single-season sack record (22.5) with Michael Strahan. How did Derek wind up as a fullback?
Joey and Nick Bossa: Two Ohio State products. Two top three draft picks. Two pass rushers. Two Defensive Rookie of the Year winners. But the Knicks are about to add their first Defensive Player of the Year award after a dynasty-best 18.5 sack season.
Devin and Jason McCourty: Identical twins with different career paths. Jason won his only Super Bowl in a 13-year career in 2018, when he teamed up in New England with his brother, who has three thumbs and was a Patriots cornerstone as a first-team All-Pro at cornerback and safety. Is.
Bruce and Clay Matthews: On top of that: The Matthews brothers combined for 38 NFL seasons, 19 each. Bruce was a Hall of Fame offensive tackle and Clay is second in Browns history with 62 sacks despite playing four seasons before the sacks were officially recorded.
Sterling and Shannon Sharp: If not for a career-ending neck injury, Sterling, who scored 42 touchdowns in his final three seasons, might have joined his younger brother in the Hall of Fame. Shannon was ahead of his time in the 1990s in setting hard records.
Tiki and Ronde Barbers: One of 31 career 10,000-yard rushers, Tuckey retired at the top of his game. The identical twins went on to play Ronda Rousey and build a borderline Hall of Fame resume with 47 interceptions in 16 seasons.
Stephen and Trayvon Diggs: It will be fun to see these two ballhawks face off for the first time in 2023. Stephon has five 1,000-yard seasons and Trayvon has 17 interceptions in three seasons.
Rob, Dan, Chris and Glenn Gronkowski: There is only one “gronk”. But there are four Gronkowskis who have worn an NFL uniform. Rob’s 92 career touchdowns make him the all-time leading tight end. The other three combined to play 57 career games.
Morquis and Mike Pouncey: Morquis entered the league a year ago (2010) and left a year later (2020). He made the Pro Bowl in nine of 11 seasons, sharing a spot on the AFC team with Mike a couple of times. Both were centers.
Sam and Randall Cunningham: Before Randle revolutionized quarterbacking as a dual threat, Sam blocked the path to the nickname “Bam” as a 10-year fullback.
John and Jim Harbaugh: Two of the best coaches of their time. Jim had a better playing career, but John coached the Ravens after Jim’s 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII and Jim returned to college football at his alma mater, Michigan, shortly after.
