Coverage: Madden NFL 13 Pigskin Pro-Am Flag

This past weekend some of Hollywood’s rising stars laced up their cleats with some of the NFL’s most revered alumni in the Madden NFL 13 Pigskin Pro-Am Flag Football game. 

Chicago’s Hutchinson Field inside of Grant Park was the perfect backdrop for the 3rd annual Madden

Pigskin Pro Am. 

Once the players arrived they had a player-only meeting to go over the rules…our celebrity rookies 

weren’t ready for full tackles.

Then it was media time..  

Hundreds of fans had lined the streets to get in for the game. After a few hours they finally started filing


Once the stadium was packed it was time to start the game. 

There is no show without the NBC Broadcast booth…. 

We can’t list the entire rosters just yet but let’s say we had some big name NFL stars…. 

Jerry Rice making a move on Deion Sanders in the 3rd quarter… 

Only in the Madden NFL 13 Pigskin Pro Am will you see Ne-Yo and Brett Farve side by side talking


All in all it was a great day with plenty of scoring action, as you can see from this Terry Crews TD
