How to configure FreeBSD machine as a bridged router?

I have 2 nic cards in my machine and I want to place this machine
between my internet connection and my router without it looking like
another router between the 2 networks (internet and my network). I
want to connect the internet line in the first nic card and the line
to my network in the second nic card as if it were a 1 port router in
bridge mode that has 1 line with the internet and the second line that
goes to my network. Is a setup like this possible with FreeBSD?
The reason why I'm asking is because I want to configure this machine
with the net.inet.tcp.inflight options and see if it boosts up data
transfer speeds without changing my network configuration, just adding
this device in front of it.
