Long vs. Long! Brothers Kyle and Chris get in a battle during Rams-Bears game

Rams end Chris Long sprinted toward a fight involving some Bears players and his teammate, and seemed to be focused on getting in a skirmish with one Bears player in particular.

Chris Long was making a beeline for Bears guard Kyle Long, who happens to be his brother.

Chris Long yanked Kyle Long off a pile that included some Bears players abusing Rams end William Hayes. Kyle Long, a rookie first-round pick of the Bears, got a personal foul penalty for kicking at Hayes, although he wasn't ejected.

The Long brothers have never played against each other on the football field, but one must imagine there were a few backyard skirmishes when they were young that their father, Hall of Famer Howie Long, had to break up. The brothers continued to have a heated conversation as the officials sorted out the penalties on the play.

The battle between brothers goes to show that nobody is going to get away with messing with Chris' teammates, not even his family members.
