Thomas and Julius Jones face off

LAST YEAR Thomas (left) and Julius Jones became the first brothers to rush for more than 1,000 yards for different NFL teams in the same season. The pair, who grew up with five sisters in Big Stone Gap, Va. (pop. 4,856), push each other on and off the field, and this week they meet in an NFL game for the second time when Thomas (723 yards rushing this year) and the 2--8 Jets visit Julius (428) and the 9--1 Cowboys. Here's a primer on the Joneses.
