The NFL has helped create a strong bond between fathers and sons.
Watching the game together on Sunday is an activity that they will cherish forever.
They share the same emotions about the game depending on how their team is doing.
That’s how fathers pass to their sons the allegiance to their beloved team.
For some, they even pass their talent to play football, giving rise to second-generation players.
The league took note of these father-son tandems through this Twitter thread.

It’s no surprise that father-son tandems are aplenty.
After all, who else would inherit the genes of those who played the game before?
That’s why the list continues with Bobby and Marlon Humphrey, and Craig and Cameron Heyward.
Indeed, the NFL is a family affair on and off the field.
It brings people together, especially athletes who share surnames and make a living playing professional football.
