BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Ferrell and Felicia Edmunds have a problem. On Sunday night, when the Steelers host the Bills on Sunday Night Football, they’ll have to make a decision.

Will they root on their two oldest sons, Trey and Terrell, who play for the Steelers? Or will they be rooting on their youngest son, Tremaine, who plays for the Bills?

It’s a good problem to have.

On Sunday night the Edmunds brothers will rewrite history when they all suit up in the same game. It will be the first time three siblings play in the same NFL game in 92 years.

“Playing on prime time against my brothers...I mean, what more could you ask for?,” Tremaine said with a smile. “What more could we ask for as a family?”

The youngest brother, Tremaine is just 21-years-old and is a captain on the Bills defense. Terrell, 22, plays safety for the Steelers and was also a first round draft pick in 2018, like Tremaine. Trey Edmunds, the oldest of the three brothers, plays running back for the Steelers.

“Just being able to actually see it happen right now it’s huge, you think about it and you dream about it but you don’t really ever know if it’s actually going to happen,” Trey said earlier this week. “We’re excited and emotions are going to be everywhere but it going to be a good opportunity for our family and both teams.”

When asked if Trey was excited to get physical with his baby brother, the Steelers running back smirked and said “oh yeah, that’s my job.”

“You know the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” Bills head coach Sean McDermott said. “When you see the other siblings and the success they’ve had and you meet their dad, their grandmother, their extended family like I’ve said before about Tremaine, the support he has from his family and the roots he has sets himself and his brothers up for success.”

Tremaine, who has proven to be a leader for the Bills defense in and off the field credits his brothers as a big reason he’s had a successful start to his NFL career. A captain on the Bills defense, Edmunds has 97 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

“We always pushed each other no matter what it was even outside of being on the field and outside of sports. We push each other to be better men, just everything, so I can’t thank them enough because without them, me being the youngest, showing me the right way it really would’ve been hard for me.

And while all three brothers realize how special Sunday night will be, they are focused on a crucial match up with playoff implications.

“Nothing is going to change on Sunday,” Tremaine added. “I want to win so it’s going to be a competitive game, you know so I’m ready for it.”
