Allen Park — The first time Lions wide receiver Corey Fuller played against his brother Kyle, a cornerback for the Bears, in the NFL, there was a natural storyline.

It was Thanksgiving, a time to be grateful for family. The Fuller parents went to the game at Ford Field last year wearing custom jerseys supporting both sons, and the family had the chance to celebrate the holiday together.

Since then, though, the Corey and Kyle Fuller have played against each other twice, and as the Lions prepare to face the Bears in the season finale Sunday (1 p.m., FOX) Corey admitted Friday the novelty has worn off a bit.

When the two brothers talk during the week, Corey Fuller said they don’t even discuss the game or possibility that they could line up against each other. This week, the main topic of discussion was whether or not their younger brother Kendall, a cornerback at Virginia Tech who’s entering the draft this year, will be in Chicago for the game.

“We talk about everything but the actual game,” Corey Fuller said.

The only time the game comes up is when one of the other Fuller brothers tries to start some trash talk between the competitors.

Even though the familial aspect of the game has taken a back seat, Fuller said his parents will be at the game Sunday. They try to attend as many games for both sons as possible.

And on Sunday, the older Corey Fuller and the Lions will try to improve their record against Kyle to 4-0.

“He hates it, I think,” Fuller said of the undefeated record.
