The stage is set for Super Bowl LII with the New England Patriots ready to take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
While both teams begin to prepare for the final game of the 2017 NFL Season, it’s hard to overlook the Hall of Fame lineage for both clubs. Two Hall of Famers will have sons competing for the ultimate team achievement when the Patriots and Eagles meet.
Patriots’ wide receiver Matthew Slater and Eagles' defensive end Chris Long are the sons of Gold Jackets Jackie Slater and Howie Long.
Long followed in the footsteps of his father, who was a sack master machine and hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy during Super Bowl XVIIII with the Oakland Raiders.

Slater hit a milestone this season being named to his seventh Pro Bowl, which ties his Dad.
All of these players have stood in the shadows of great men that were raised on the principles of the game through Commitment, Integrity, Courage, Respect and Excellence.
Here is an extended look at the 19 father and son combinations to have made it to the Super Bowl.
