Two Gores: A father, a son and two touchdowns on the same weekend.
New York Jets running back Frank Gore is 37 and has been in the NFL since 2005. His son, Frank Gore Jr., a freshman running back at Southern Miss, was born in 2002. The elder Gore was in college at Miami when his son was born. He is now playing for his fifth NFL team.
This weekend, both Gores found the end zone on the same weekend for the first time.
On Saturday, the younger Gore ripped off a 51-yard touchdown reception in the Golden Eagles' 23-20 loss to UTSA.

On Sunday, his father scored his first touchdown as a Jet, also scoring in his third decade of his NFL career.
Social media was there to congratulate the ageless wonder.

If Dad can hang around for a few more seasons and his son makes a pro team, they'd be the first father and son to play in the NFL at the same time.
