The New York Jets will have their hands full this week with a big match up against the New Orleans Saints. While the teams on the field demand plenty of attention, it will be the two men on the sidelines that present an intriguing story line.

Jets head coach Rex Ryan and his brother, Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, will be battling out for bragging rights in the family.

As we all start to examine the sibling rivalry story line, photos have surfaced of the two from their younger days, when they looked much more alike.

The NFL tweeted out this excellent photo of the two from their college graduation:

It’s always fun to watch family members in an elaborate chess match as they coach against each other, so the added dynamic brings some intrigue to a game that could very well end up as a Saints blowout win.
