Sunday night’s Bills-Steelers game will be a special night for the Edmunds family.

Bills linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, Steelers safety Terrell Edmunds and Steelers running back Trey Edmunds will all be on the field, and that will make them the first trio of brothers to play in the same NFL game in 92 years.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last time three brothers all played in the same NFL game was in 1927, when Joe Rooney, Cobb Rooney and Bill Rooney all played for the Duluth Eskimos.

It’s going to be a fabulous moment. It’s exciting,” their mom, Felicia Edmunds, told the Steelers’ website. “We are going to take it in stride and not lean one way or another but be neutral. One thing is this will be the first game ever when I get to clap for every single call, every play. It doesn’t matter if it’s defense or offense, they are good for us. This will be the very first game I am able to clap no matter which way the ref calls it.”

The Edmunds brothers were raised by Felicia and their father, two-time Pro Bowl tight end Ferrell Edmunds, in a family that was focused on football. Sunday will be a special day for that family.

  1. It’s interesting to me… I feel like there wasn’t much sibling commentary in the 80’s or 90’s…but in the last 5-10 years it’s no longer unusual to see brothers in the NFL, and sometimes on the same team.

    I wonder if that’s been a statistical change or if my perception is all that’s changed.

  2. Been looking forward to this game all season. Should be a low-scoring defensive struggle with the potential for snow. Perfect setup for a mid-December game.

  3. Ah, the old Duluth Eskimos. I bet there were a lot people trying to show their salesman skills by attempting to sell ice at their games.

  4. Very cool! I suppose if two of the three Watt brothers were on the same team they might have done the same. But the Edmunds’ get it done.

  5. Some serious athletic genes in that family! Reminds of the Carolina Hurricanes NHL team putting Eric, Jordan, and Jared Staal on the same line to start a game.

  6. I guess there’s always a silver lining in every beatdown, Steelers’ fans. The Bill need this win and they are clearly the superior team.

    Would the Eskimos name fly today?

    The Edmonton Eskimos still exist in the CFL.

    Duluth had a drawing of an igloo as their logo, (which is probably not PC these days.)

    Edmonton just has double “E”s, which is kinda lame.

    Their uniforms are butt ugly also.

  11. Still can’t believe the Steelers wasted a 1st round pick on Edmunds #2.
    Could have had him in the 3rd or 4th round. Dude gets beat on a regular basis.
