Jermaine Kearse and Luke Willson took the team's "Always Compete" mantra to the virtual gridiron on Tuesday night inside Bellevue Square's Microsoft Store, where the Seahawks wide receiver and tight end faced off in a game of Madden 17, the popular video game franchise that released its latest installment this week.
Both sides chose to play as the Seahawks, with the victor set to take home $5,000 to a charity of their choice. Willson, who live-streamed all the action on his Facebook page (video embedded for you above), came out a winner on the sticks, shutting out Kearse 12-0 thanks large in part to a pick-six from strong safety Kam Chancellor.
"Looking forward to helping some kids in the homeland play football with the winning donation," the Canadian-born Willson wrote on Facebook. "Stay tuned."
Tuesday's event also served as a promotional opportunity for the new Seahawks-themed Surface Pro 4 NFL Special Edition Type Cover, which you can check out in the gallery embedded below.
