Griffin Brothers Play Madden NFL 19
Last month, we brought you a behind-the-scenes look at Shaquill Griffin and Shaquem Griffin learning their player ratings in Madden NFL 19, and now ESPN has shared a short video featuring the Seahawks cornerback and linebacker going head-to-head in the new video game from EA Sports.
"I want everybody to understand, you can have no hands, two hands, it doesn't matter how many hands you have, or feet, you can play Madden and win just like me, and be good at it," Shaquem said as he was in the middle of delivering his twin brother a defeat on the sticks.
The full video from ESPN featuring the Griffin brothers playing Madden inside the Cortez Kennedy Players' Lounge at Virginia Mason Athletic Center is embedded for you above.
