ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — There’s a lot to look forward to on Sunday. It’s the Bills’ first Sunday Night Football game in 12 years, and they have an opportunity to lock in their spot in the playoffs with a win over the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

However, for Tremaine Edmunds, it’s also a family reunion.


Edmunds will be facing his brothers Terrell and Trey.

Tremaine and Terrell, who is a safety for the Steelers, became the first brothers to ever be selected in the first round of the same draft in 2018.

Tremaine and Trey, who is a fullback for the Steelers, have a chance to go head-to-head. 

Trey, who was signed by the Steelers as a free agent last year, has 22 carries on the season. If he carries some of the load on Sunday, Tremaine could have to tackle him.

This opportunity is something the brothers have always dreamed about.

“It’s really no other way that you could want it,” Tremaine said. “Just being in the NFL – it’s a dream come true for all of us. This is gonna be a moment that we’re gonna cherish, that we’re always gonna remember, but it’s a competitive game we play. As much as it’s a special moment, it’s a ball game. We gotta go out there and compete. I gotta help my team win, so I’m gonna do everything I can to help my team.”

The game will be the first time in 92 years that three brothers have played in the same NFL game. The last to do so were Joe, Cobb and Bill Rooney in 1927 on the Duluth Eskimos.

The Bills and Steelers kickoff at 8:20 p.m. Sunday night right here on News10NBC.
