The Pro Bowl is famously the least entertaining part of the NFL season. Basically, it’s just players who have already mentally checked out pretending to compete in a game with no stakes in order to earn one last paycheck. But while this year’s game may have felt like a lazy way to pass time before next Sunday’s Big Game, there was at least one genuinely exciting game highlight, thanks to Drew Brees’ sons Baylen, Bowen, and Callen who were interviewed on the sideline with their dad. The lads were supposed to talk about their gun-slinging father and their experience as Pro Bowl ball boys, but things quickly turned chaotic when Bowen and Callen started fighting while an NFL reporter tried to get them to answer questions.

To Baylen’s credit, the oldest brother did all he could to keep the interview on track, as he politely answered questions and named which NFL players he had been most excited to meet. But there was nothing he could do to stop his younger brothers once they started roughhousing. As their skirmish escalated, they even briefly ended up on the field while the game was literally being played, which seems like a violation of at least a couple NFL rules. Fortunately, it was the Pro Bowl so nobody really seemed to mind that two young boys had stepped onto the field in the middle of the game.
After Baylen’s interview wrapped up, he quickly ran over to join his brothers’ brawl. Brees then spoke to the interview, explaining that raising three young boys means there is pretty much always a fight going on and luckily, this one didn’t seem too bad. However, he did end up talking to Bowen and Callen after the interview to make sure they understood why they need to stay off the field. Otherwise, they might accidentally end up getting crushed by a stampede of 300-pound linemen.
