Typically, facing the Seahawks defense isn’t something offensive players look forward to. However, for Martellus Bennett, it offers a unique opportunity.
He gets to play against his brother.
Unlike Eli and Peyton Manning, Martellus and his brother Michael will quite literally go head-to-head this week as the Bears play Seattle. The Bears tight end and the Seahawks defensive end will almost certainly find themselves paired up during the game.
Before the game starts, however, the two are still brothers.
Hours before the start of their game, the Bennett brothers were seen patrolling CenturyLink Field and warming up together.
This isn’t the first time the Bennett’s have played each other. But since joining the Bears, older brother Michael has controlled the rivalry. Michael is 2-0 against Martellus since he signed with Chicago in 2013.
Before taking the field, Martellus posted a picture with his brother along with a touching note displaying his feelings for Michael.
