Amon-Ra St. Brown won the German brother duel in the National Football League and is slowly becoming a star with the Detroit Lions.
The 22-year-old wide receiver started his sixth touchdown of the season on Sunday at the Lions’ surprising 37:30 against the Green Bay Packers, the clearly favored team of his older brother Equanimeous (25). Never before had a German professional made it into the end zone more than once.
His father John obviously wanted to distribute his sympathies fairly – he wore a jersey in the stands that was sewn together from the shirts of both teams. Equanimeous St. Brown played no role, but he moves on to the play-offs with the best NFC team (13-4 wins) as a promising title contender. The Lions (3-13-1) had no chance for a long time, but as the second weakest NFL team they are number two in the next top talent draw.
The Tennessee Titans wrested first place in the AFC from the Kansas City Chiefs and a week off with a shaky 28:25 at the Houston Texans. The Indianapolis Colts embarrassed themselves with the play-offs before their eyes at an 11:26 at the Jacksonville Jaguars.
