Football is often passed down from father to son. The game can be a father-son bonding ritual, from watching games on Saturdays and Sundays to going out on the field and playing the game.
Football fans recall football families with numerous father-son duos such as the Mannings and the Matthews family. Through week five of the 2012 season, 197 sets of father-sons had played professional football, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Last season, the Bills featured two sons of former NFL players, Jairus Byrd and Lee Smith.
