If it seems like Howie Long has been a constant presence on FOX’s NFL pre-game show for the past two decades, it’s because he has been. That will change this Sunday, however, when his sons Chris and Kyle face off against each other in the upcoming Bears-Rams game:

According to Biggs’ Chicago Tribune story, we can expect some plays where the Bears’ rookie guard Kyle will be assigned to block his older brother, that Howie doesn’t know what his emotions will be like, and that Vegas has set an over/under of camera shots to the Longs’ suite during Sunday’s game at 31.5*.

Kudos to Fox Sports for letting Howie go to the game. He has a great job but this is a special family moment and I am glad Fox let him go watch his sons.Another reason I really like Howie Long
