Chris Long Howie Long Question

Howie called Chris his nephew in the halftime highlights?

Isn't Chris Howie's son?

I believe you misheard. Terry Bradshaw called Chris Long his nephew, he then asked Howie Long how many sacks Chris had for the season. Howie replied that he didn't know and everyone replied sceptically, assuming Howie would know all of Chris' stats by heart.

Howie Long sometimes jokes that Bradshaw is "the older brother he wishes he never had!" So, Bradshaw was jokingly calling Long's son "his nephew". I didn't get it either, at the time. I was like, "what?"
