Jerry brothers meet when Dolphins play Falcons

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Miami Dolphins guard John Jerry expects his relatives to show favoritism Sunday when he's blocking his brother, Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Peria Jerry.

He said they'd better cheer for him, because he bought the tickets.

The Jerrys have played each other in exhibition games, but never before during the regular season. This sibling matchup will be different from Manning vs. Manning, because it will take place in the trenches, and the Jerrys figure to butt heads a lot.

John and Peria are the two youngest of 7 kids, including six boys, and they stuck together a lot growing up. They were also the football players in the family - teammates in high school in Batesville, Tenn., and at the University of Mississippi.
