This weekend marked NFL Week 10 and also the return of the split jersey.
Cheryl Bosa, mother of Nick and Joey Bosa, was in attendance at the primetime game between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Chargers. Although her elder son, Joey, did not play for the Bolts due to a groin injury that placed him on injured reserve, Nick had four tackles and a sack in the 49ers’ 22-16 victory.
But Cheryl Bosa refused to pick a side.
She showed up in a split jersey combining both her sons’ No. 97 uniforms and paired it with a simple 97 pendant with a special accessory — a blinged-out chain with the helmets of both teams.
Her hat was simple, yet effective with the words, “Football Mom.”

As the temperatures drop in the Midwest, teams like the Kansas City Chiefs turn to stylish coats. Tight end Jody Fortson stunted on everyone with a Dior puffer jacket and matching hoodie. Too cozy.
