Nick Bosa of the 49ers and Joey Bosa of the Chargers are a rare pair of brothers in NFL history.

Nick has 11 sacks this season and Joey had 7.5 sacks this season, putting them at a total of 18.5 sacks combined in 2021. With six games left on both teams’ schedules, they need to average just under one sack per game to set a new NFL record for the most sacks by a pair of brothers in a season.

The current record is 29, set by Houston’s J.J. Watt (16) and Pittsburgh’s T.J. Watt (13) in 2018.

The second-most sacks by brothers in a season is 22, set by Doug Martin of the Vikings (13) and George Martin of the Giants (9) in 1983.

The third-most sacks by brothers in a season is 20.5, set by the Bosas in 2019.

  1. Hoping Quinnen and Quincy Williams can crash that party. It’s even better with them on the same team.

  2. Wonder what the record would be for either set if all four were not so injury prone. And actually play all 16, err 17 games.
