Chris Long Runs Off Bench to Pull Brother Kyle Long Out of Scuffle (GIF)

bears rams long brothers fight

For the first time in their professional football careers, brothers Chris Long and Kyle Long were opponents on an NFL field in Sunday’s game between the St. Louis Rams and the Chicago Bears.

But blood still runs pretty thick, as fans witnessed when Bears guard Kyle was briefly involved in a scuffle, and Rams defensive end Chris saw fit to run off the bench and pull his brother away from the fight.

It happened pretty fast, but you can see it all in the animated GIFs below. It’s sort of touching (not to mention rare) to see this kind of family tie in a professional football game.  Wouldn’t you agree?
