Colquitt Sibling Rivalry

Posted Nov 13, 2013

Brothers Britton and Dustin Colquitt will square off at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – For the second time this year, a Broncos game will feature a sibling rivalry.

While plenty of attention was paid to Peyton and Eli Manning’s matchup in Week 2, this one is flying a bit more under the radar.

“I’ve met with (Peyton), individually, a lot this week just to – the brother-to-brother thing coming up. I wanted to talk to him about how he handled dealing with Eli,” Colquitt laughed.

All joking aside, Colquitt said that he was not treating this week any differently based on the fact that his brother, Dustin, is in his ninth season as the Chiefs’ punter.

“We talk just the same, I guess,” Colquitt said of their communication leading up to Sunday. “We always talk during the week. We get mixed up with our kids and stuff like that so we just text nowadays a little more than talking. But it doesn’t change.”

COLQUITTS' HEAD-TO-HEAD MATCHUPS
Colquitt Record No. Gross Net LG In20 TB
Britton Colquitt 4-2 32 43.4 37.8 60 12 2
Dustin Colquitt 2-4 39 45.7 40.4 67 19 5

The Colquitts come from a long lineage of punters. Dustin and Britton are both current NFL punters, while their father, Craig, won two Super Bowl rings as the Steelers’ punter from 1978-84. The entire family of punters, including a cousin, Jimmy, all punted collegiately at the University of Tennessee.

This will be the seventh matchup that pits the Colquitts against one another in the NFL. In those games, Dustin has a slight statistical edge, but Britton has the advantage when it comes to record, as Denver is 4-2 in those games.

“To see your brother on the other sideline, it’s even more surreal and just a dream come true and a blessing,” Colquitt said.

“We’re excited to see each other.”
