At least Arthur Jones has some bragging rights going into his game with the Ravens on Sunday.
He announced he'd defeated his brother, Chandler Jones of the New England Patriots, late Thursday night in Madden 13, a popular football video game they played online.
Arthur wrote on Twitter: "Just beat @Chan95Jones in Madden 4437 RAVENS > patriots. Haha we will see who gets bragging rights after Sunday night. Lets goo!!"
He even included a picture that showed the scoreboard.
Arthur Jones, 26, a 6-foot-3, 313-pound second-team defensive end for the Ravens, doesn't have the high profile of his younger brothers. He was a 2010 fifth-round draft pick. He backs up Pernell McPhee for a Baltimore line that has had trouble generating pressure on the quarterback.
"We talked a little junk back and forth. Nothing too serious," Arthur said Friday. "We're both excited for the weekend. It's a huge weekend for our family."
Chandler, 22, is a 6-foot-5, 260-pound rookie defensive end who already has forced two fumbles and has a sack for New England. A starter, he was a first-round pick.
I call Arthur 'Mommy's little big baby.' And there's 'Mommy's little tiny baby,' Chandler, their mother, Camille Jones, told AP. I'm torn about what team I'm going to root for.
Both attended Syracuse. Their other brother, Jon "Bones" Jones, 25, will be defending his UFC light heavyweight title on Saturday night in Toronto.
Camille, who is blind, will attend the cage match and be at M&T Bank Stadium.
"We tore up a lot of furniture growing up. Now we're happy we're in a unique situation that we can give that back to our parents," Arthur said.
Chandler has been short and sweet with his answers. He won't be hitting his brother, however, since they both play defense.
"Main thing is just focusing on this game," Chandler, who has two forced fumbles and a sack, told CSNNE.com. "Trying to get this game plan down and coming up with a win."
Arthur isn't worried about the fighter in the family.
"I know Jon is going to take care of business," he said.
