For the first time in two decades, Howie Long will have a Sunday to himself, and he'll spend it like any reasonable father would.
Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports FOX Sports has given Long the day off to watch his sons, Rams defensive end Chris Long and Bears guard Kyle Long, play against each other.
Biggs adds that Kyle, the Bears' first-round pick this past April, will be tasked with blocking his older brother in the NFC matchup. The 4-6 Rams are vying to get in the playoff picture, while the 6-4 Bears are fighting to remain tied atop their division.
Chris Long is arguably St. Louis' best pass rusher -- having notched 13 sacks in 2011, 11.5 in 2012, and 6.5 this season -- so baby bro could have his hands full.
Though, no matter who comes out on top, one thing's for certain: A proud papa will be looking on from the Edward Jones Dome.
