Even those of us at The A.V. Club are aware that Super Bowl LI is going down this weekend, if only because it’s carte blanche to scarf nachos and chili. We kid—it’s obviously a big deal for a lot of people, including Conan O’Brien, who held a special “Big Game” edition of his Clueless Gamer segment. O’Brien was joined by Tom Brady, who’s been to this dance before, as well as Brady’s teammate, Rob Gronkowski. Dwight Freeney was also on hand to represent the Patriots’ opposition, the Atlanta Falcons, as they played Ubisoft’s For Honor.
Although he’s usually the Clueless Gamer in question, O’Brien stays on the sidelines while Freeney plays against Brady, Gronkowski, and their fellow Patriot LeGarrette Blount. Former Seahawk Marshawn Lynch, who doesn’t really have a horse in this race, shows up to help Freeney, but it’s all for naught. Things don’t end well for Freeney. He can only hope his bad luck won’t extend to the gridiron this Sunday.
