The National Football League released their preseason schedule on Tuesday and the Green Bay Packers will play the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 of the preseason. The game will be played at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland and will feature El Paso sibling rivalry at its finest.

Aaron and Alvin Jones have played on the same football team their entire lives. They led the Burges Mustangs to district championships and both played their college football with the UTEP Miners. However, the preseason game in Baltimore will be the first time the two twin brothers step foot on a football field wearing different colors.

Aaron, who rushed for 8 touchdowns in 2018 for the Packers, took to social media with his reaction to the game.

“See you Week 2 of the preseason,” said Aaron on a Twitter post.

“See you Week 2 my boy,” replied Alvin.

There is no official date or time for the ‘Jones Brothers’ Bowl,’ but it will be played between August 15-19. It is safe to say we will see a jersey swap when the two get together after the game.
