August 28, 2019


– Please! No!
– Let’s go! – Aw, man.
– (laughs) – Oh my god!
– Oh, fumble! NO! ♪ (upbeat video game music) ♪ – (FBE) All right, guys. Well, today you’re going
to be playing a game, and it’s gonna be this one. – Oh, no!
– Oh, no. – Okay.
– I haven’t played Madden since, like, Madden 2008.
– The original Xbox. – Not very confident.
I don’t understand video games, I don’t understand football, so…
– I usually don’t play sports games, because I usually always lose.
– I actually won the tournament. – Did you? Oh, man.
– Yeah, and I beat Michael. And he plays Madden like crazy.
– Yeah, I know. – So let’s play. – (FBE) This is not
just a regular gaming episode, it is a tournament.
– Mm-hmm, okay. – A football tournament.
– A football tournament. – (FBE) We’re also doing something
a bit different this time around. The winner with the highest score
of all the games goes straight to the finals,
while the other two winners have to face off
in a semi-finals playoff. If there’s a tie, we’ll base it
off of point differential. – Wow, that’s very different.
– I like that. – This is gonna be the most
entertaining game of all time. – She could be really good,
or she could be really bad. I don’t know. I’ve never
played with her, so we’ll see. Let’s do this. ♪ (hard rock music) ♪ – I got my team right here.
I got it. Patriots. – Falcons are pretty good.
– Falcons will be the next– okay. You could do that.
– Yeah, I’ll go with the Falcons. 91 overall, like,
that’s a high-ass number. Are you kidding me? – Dude, this is gonna be so bad.
– Okay, here we go. – Squib! Aw. – (sportcaster) Charles and I
have been looking forward to this one all week.
– What? Dude. Why’s it set to [inaudible] so high?
– Yay! – (sportscaster) Throwing now,
Ryan on 1st down. – Let’s go! Already.
Wow! That’s how you start a game. – Dude, I was just… – I’m gonna act like I know
what I’m talking about. – Yeah! Yay.
– No! – I’m going all the way. – (sportscaster) Picked up
by Deion Jones, the linebacker. – (groans)
– Nah, I’m just joking. Oh no! No, no! NO!
– Yes! – I’m sorry.
– Okay. Uh-oh, 1st quarter’s
pretty much done. – (sportcaster) It brings up
a key 3rd down. – I get it. Oh.
Whoa, whoa, whoa! (whistle blows)
– And we’re done. (chuckles) – Why do I gotta be like this, dude? – Yay! Oh, man. – (sportscaster) Looking for Jones–
and it’s intercepted! (whistle blows)
– Ha ha! I did something! – I swear, like, I don’t think
we’ve made one complete pass. – Might as well.
– Just go. – Since…
– Just wanna Hail Mary every pass. – …I’m on the other side,
and you have 30 seconds left… – (sportscaster) Throwing
is Brady on 3rd down. – Yeah! Aw. (disappointed grunt)
– Ah! – I didn’t even do that, but still.
– One more, one more. – It’s the make it or break it.
– Dude, I’m just gonna Hail Mary every–
even if I’m at the endzone, I’m just gonna– straight up.
– That’s probably what I’m gonna do, ’cause we’re gonna
stay here for a while. – (sportscaster) The final shot
before half for Brady. – What?
– Was that a touchback? Is that what it’s called?
– Yeah. – (FBE) Safety.
– Same thing, Derek. I don’t even know. – Aw, he got two points. – (sportscaster) We at least
finally get some points on it. – [Inaudible], I’m kind of
lost here, too. – [Inaudible]. – (sportscaster) Danny Amendola
on the return, gets past one man. – Aw, if there wasn’t
that one guy right there. – At least I know I can potentially
win one round of this tournament, and I’ll just get
kicked out instantly– wait! How do you switch character?
– Let’s go! Let’s go! What you say?
What you– (laughs) – Yeah! (laughs)
– No! That’s so– (frustrated groan)
– Yo. Yo. – (sportscaster) That’s exactly
what they did there. – Lucky. – (sportscaster) He’s back to throw.
– (exclaims in frustration) – Wait! Did I just– Oh, ho, ho!
– Did he get flagged? Was it on me?
– I think it was flagged on you. – No–
– I think it was flagged on you. – Yeah, I’m–
– It has to be flagged on you. I think you went too early. – (sportscaster) So let’s see
what this is about. – Let’s go!
– I can’t hear what he’s– Dude.
– (sportscaster) Atlanta now coming out on the field.
– [Bleep] you, dude.. – I would, to be honest.
– I have to! There’s nothing else I can do.
– At this point, you might as well. – Please! No!
– Let’s go! (laughs) – Dude! Every…
– (growls victoriously) – I let all the Falcons fan down.
No, not– – (sportscaster) Now, Brady. – Whoa, whoa!
– Yes! Dude, I don’t know
what that catch was. – He literally fell into it. – (sportscaster) This is Freeman
on 1st and 10. – No! What? How?
– Let’s go! – (sportscaster) And it’s picked up
by the Patriots. – No! Let’s go!
– I don’t know how– I got so lucky. Can I dive? – (sportscaster) Back to throw.
– Please! – (sportscaster) A declaration throw
deep down field. – He got it!
– Did I catch it? – Yeah. – (sportscaster) …called in
one-handed. – (sportscaster) And the clock
will now stop. – Five seconds! You have to Hail Mary it…
– How many do I have? – …one more time.
– Oh, I got two more. I could just call it again
real quick, huh? Wait, oh the play’s gonna be over. – You have five seconds.
– I gotta get a touchdown now, or else I lose.
– Yup. – There’s no way.
– Oh, ha. Dude! – I’m making this happen.
– Wait, how close am I? All right, dude. I’m close. – (sportscaster) One last shot
for Ryan. He’s gonna let it… – Let’s go! – Yeah, dude! Yes!
– What? No! No! One second!
– Yeah! Yes! Yeah, dude! – This is the last play
to determine the winner. – How mad would you be
if I get this? – I would be at a good nine. – (sportscaster) One final shot.
They’ll look to throw. Now a desperation throw–
– Let’s– – (sportscaster) Oh, a crusher there
as it’s intercepted, picked off by Patrick Chung. – Yes! Let’s go! Let’s go! ♪ (hard rock music) ♪ – All right, I’m gonna go Raiders. – I’ll just go 49ers.
– Raiders, shout out to my boys. We got a little of a battle
of the Bays going on. All right, so
you’re receiving. Am I? – Wait, is this me or you?
– Oh, perfect. – Wait no, that’s you…
– I’m assuming this is me. – …’cause I’m red. I’m red.
– Yeah, you’re returning. You’re returning. You’re returning.
– Yeah. – All right, I think I know
a little more than Geneva at least. – (laughs) – Oh, shit. Oh!
– Oh my gosh! Go, go, go! – Ooh, double leg.
One tackle, okay. I don’t know any
of the players anymore. – That was a running play.
I’m gonna do a passing play. – Passing play? For sure.
Thanks for letting me know. (laughs) – I can see your plays.
How does that even make any sense? – It’s rigged. A little early. Punt it away.
– That’s a good one. – All right, get it.
Get that return. – Where’s…? Okay. – Yes. My dude just went
straight to the middle. – (sportscaster) Carr
gonna try and throw on 3rd down. – Ooh, money!
– Dang, 1st down. End of quarter, though. – (sportscaster) And he’s
taken down at the 40th. – Perfect punt right here.
– Oh, perfect punt? Okay. Let me get the return. Oh, oh, oh. – Get it!
Run it! Run it! (chuckles) Pick it up. – (sportscaster) Advantage
on offense. Is it through a big… – Go, go, go! Sack him! – (sportscaster) …or is it
just running the regular offense and running it better?
– Oof! All right, not bad. I haven’t played Madden
in a minute. This is fun. – (sportscaster) Now Carr
throwing on 2nd down. – (both) Oh!
– Boy! – I was about to get that.
– Oh, we’re about to run out right now.
This is garbage. – You’ve got to make
a touchdown right here. – Yeah. I could
run the clock, right? – Yeah. Oh, you’re
supposed to hike it before you run down the clock. You gotta get
this 1st down right here, or I’m gonna win, basically. – With zero points? – (sportscaster) Throwing
on 1st down is Carr. – Aw!
– How did he miss that? That… – My dude with the
butter fingers right here. – (sportscaster) To throw is Carr. – Yes! Yes! Yes, a screen!
– What? What!?
– Aw! (exclaims in frustration) – (sportscaster) Carr to throw. – Git, git, g– (laughs)
– Aw, man. – Oh, yeah!
– Oh, fumble! NO! – Run faster! (laughs)
– NO! NO! What the?!
Hey, how do I move this? Ay, ay!
– No, no. I got that! I got that.
– What?! – (sportscaster) He’s back to throw.
He’s gonna let it fly. – Oh! Game, game, game, game!
– Oh my god. – Let’s go!
– The two-point conversion? – Maybe.
– Is it worth it? – I mean, like,
I don’t have much to lose. – Go big or go home. – (sportscaster) He’ll
look to throw. – Oh! No!
– (sportscaster) It’s incomplete. – Aw, man. I got wrecked. – Game over.
– If I get an interception… – I just gotta let the clock run.
– No, no, no. Don’t be one of those people.
– Don’t be one of those people?! – (sportscaster) They’ll
set up to throw. And a quick throw here,
that’s complete. – Aw, man. Aw. Good game. Good game. ♪ (hard rock music) ♪ – I will go with the Falcons, ’cause their overall says 91. I’m looking at their stats.
– Oh, that’s a– I didn’t even see that.
– I shouldn’t have said anything. – Patriots is a 93.
– They’re always good, though, in their stats.
– I need help. – Oh, that’s me.
– Press the X. – Okay.
– There you go. Then you do it again.
– Oh, I have to do it again? Okay.
– Well… – Oh, just kidding. – (sportscaster) …to kick
this one off. These folks are ready
and we are underway. – We out. (laughs)
– Ooh, starting for 20. – (sportscaster) Throwing now,
Ryan on 1st down. – Where am I? (laughs)
– Oof. Ooh, let’s see who’s open. – (sportscaster) On 2nd down, Ryan.
– Yes, 1st down! (whistle blows)
– (giggles) – I’m getting close to that endzone.
– He just, like, sat on ’em. – My heart is just racing right now.
I need to– – It’s getting closer.
I don’t think– oh god! – No! Okay, do I wanna go for it? I’d rather have some points
on there, so I’ll do the field kick. – (sportscaster) A 52-yard attempt. – Did it work?
– And… – (sportscaster) And that one’s
not gonna get there. – That was too short! My god!
– (laughs) – There you go.
– Oh, shoot. Okay. Let’s get going. – No, come on!
– Oh, Jesus. – I had like three guys on her. There you go. You got it. That way you can kick it
to where it wants it to be. – [inaudible] (laughs) – (sportscaster) And this
will be taken at the 13. – (sportcaster) Gonna get
a little bit closer this time. Yeah. Well, you know,
I’d rather get in the endzone… – No! Tackled, oh my god.
– (laughs) I think everything happens
so quick in football. That’s why I’m like,
my brain needs a second to process what’s happening.
– That was a bad pass. – Oh god.
– You called a timeout? Oh no, that’s halftime.
– Oh, I was like… (chuckles). – (sportscaster) …as we expected,
looking at the clock. – (sportscaster) They run
the play fake to Coleman, now Ryan. – Ooh!
– Oh! – At least I made it far.
– You did go quite far. – I’m right there. – (sportscaster) Throwing now
is Ryan. – Oh! Oh, no!
– Yes! – (laughs) I was like right in it. Let’s go! Go! No, no! – Oh. Oh, yes!
– Oh. Oh, no! Oh. – I just gotta waste the time. At least make the 1st down
and waste time. (laughs) – (sportscaster) Ryan
on the handoff. It’s Freeman. – That was a good game, though.
– It was. – Magaly, you have
the biggest point differential from the first round,
so you are going to advance straight to the finals.
– Yeah! Sorry, I got a little too excited.
– Nice! ♪ (hard rock music) ♪ – I’m a little nervous, just because
she wants to get some revenge. With Mortal Kombat,
we went against each other. – He won.
– We both won one. – And then I won the last round.
– It was super close, though. – Patriots did good to me.
They have the highest overall throughout the whole game, so–
– So you’re gonna cheat And pick the best team.
– Pretty much. – I’ll just pick someone
that’s close to your score. Okay, the Chiefs. – I am starting it off.
– Wait. Are you? – Yeah.
– Okay. (chuckles) – (sportscaster) Here’s
Cairo Santos now… – Oh yeah, no.
She knows what she’s doing. – Oh, I was punting.
This is you running. – (sportscaster) Now
Dion Lewis to return. – Gi– git! Oh my gosh. Oh! – (sportscaster) And
some room to maneuver! – Okay, okay. We’re
doing pretty good. How do you make them hurry? Dang it.
– Wait. What happened? – First quarter’s done.
– Oh. – Still a little nervous about this. – (sportscaster) Throwing
on 1st down is Brady. – Ooh! Oh my gosh! I thought I was about
to get an interception. – Oh, that was close.
That was a close one. – Oh. What? – (sportscaster) And they’re
running right through him. – Are you serious?
– Wait! Did that just happen? What? Okay, Patriots. Okay,
now I see why y’all num– I see why. I see why.
That number 93. – (amused) Number 93.
– Overall. – (sportscaster) Gotti’s
over the line and into the endzone. – All right. – Put your hand down.
(laughs) Put your hand down! – (sportscaster) Gostkowski now
out to kick it away. – Ya! – All right, I’m gonna run it back. – (sportscaster) This’ll be taken
to the back of the endzone. – Woo! Aw. (laughs)
– Aw! – Hike. – (sportscaster) …to throw
on 2nd down to Smith. – Wow. I didn’t– (gasps) Okay.
– Oh! Another f– (laughs) – (sportscaster) And
the Patriots have it! – I’m confused. What happened?
– Let’s call a timeout right there. – What just happened?
How? I caught it. – I hit you, and your player’s weak,
so he dropped the ball. – (sportscaster) Both teams
appear ready for the fight ahead… – Oh, it didn’t look
like it was perfect. – (sportscaster) …here
in quarter number three. – Where do I run? Where do I run?
Skirr. Oh! – Wow. Imagine another fumble. – (sportscaster) Great run there.
Get it to the back end of the backfield
to make a bigger play. – Oh!
– (sportscaster) As we often say, give it to him in space,
let him use his legs. – What?!
– How? Go! No, touchdown all day.
All day. All day! – Got you! (laughs)
– Aw! – What?
– This is gonna be easy. You just gotta know how to
press a button at the right time. – (sportscaster) Yeah,
something has to happen, because… – Yeah, this is
basically simple stuff. – No yards. No yards! Git! 10-yard line. – (sportscaster) Green light
means go. Red light means stop. Looks like he had green
on that play. – Oof. Oh, that was a good pass. Oh! Get him!
– Let’s go! That– Okay, see?
– All right. I’ll give you props. That was a good play. – (sportscaster) Brady now to throw. – Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Oh, get him! (laughs) – Aw. – Oh! All day. All day! – Let’s go!
– What!? – (sportscaster) And
the Patriots have it! – Oh. To fat man,
fat man. Thank you! – Let’s go! – (sportscaster) Now,
after the fumble recovery, it’s Brady. – Wow!
– Run. Run, run, run! Run! Run! Nope. Yup, yup. I got it. I’m sorry, your guys are far.
– Another one! – Your guys are far.
– (groans) – I think it’s my time
to go like this now. – (sportscaster) …throwing that
pick-six, and now the kick is away. – It’s weird how when you kick it… – (sportscaster) This’ll be
taken in at the 1. – I mean, you could
run it back if you’re good. – (sportscaster) He’ll
look to throw. – Where are you gonna pass it? Ooh.
– What?! – Game over.
– (sportscaster) Crusher there as it’s intercepted.
– Oh yeah, I’m just gonna go out of bounds. Game over. And… win.
– Ah, good game. – Now we’re even. ♪ (hard rock music) ♪ – I’m very nervous,
’cause I really want the crown. – I wanna win.
– But I’m gonna go the same as– Falcons,
’cause I won in the last one. – I’m just gonna go with Patriots,
’cause Tom Brady. – Good luck. – I don’t need luck to win.
– Oh. – No, I’m just kidding!
Good luck, too. – Let’s do this. – (sportscaster) Coming up,
we’ve got what should prove to be a good one
between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots.
– This is you, right? Yeah, that’s you.
– Yeah. All right, not bad.
– Dang, you know what you’re doing. I don’t even know how
to do that. (chuckles) – (sportscaster) They’ll throw
on 1st down with Ryan. He completes it to Julio Jones! – 1st down, 1st down.
So far, so good. – All right, now
I’m a little intimidated. – My heart is racing right now. – Is it?
– Yeah. – Don’t be nervous. – Yes! That was close.
She almost sacked me. – (sportscaster) And
down he goes! Now, Ryan on 2nd down.
– Yes! Touchdown, baby! – (sportscaster) …matter what,
they have the right call on against the right defense… – Scramble.
– I feel like you really have to suck to miss a field goal. – Where am I? – (sportscaster) First one
taken from the 7. – All right.
– Go! – (sportscaster) …hit
some tough territory. If he’s late with the ball… Oh my gosh!
– Yes! – I saw when he was running
that you were just gonna get that interception.
I saw that happen. – (sportscaster) They’re already
looking for more. Here’s [inaudible] at 1st and 10. – No! – (sportscaster) It’s intercepted. – Tag her! I knew that was a bad throw
as soon as I threw it. – (sportscaster) Those guys have
got it back at the closing stages. – Oh yeah, you’re gonna get it.
I don’t even know how to pull that screen up
where you look at all the plays. – Okay.
– If we were playing 2K, like, you know, basketball,
I’d be doing a lot better. – Yeah, I suck a lot too. – (sportscaster) They look
to run with Freeman. – Get it in! Goddamn it!
– You are not sucking. You’re doing so good.
– He did not even make a touchdown. Come on! Run! Yes! – (sportscaster) Touchdown, Atlanta! – It’s just… Ah, I did that. Dude. – (shouts in celebration)
– No! No! – Run!
– Yeah! (laughs) – (sportscaster) Get the high hop,
and hope that one of the guys… – All right. Feeling
a little better. – It could be
anybody’s game right now. – Ooh.
– What? Stop joking! Just run! – No!
– Run! God damn. – (sportscaster) Freeman again.
– Fumble! If you get a freaking–
– (laughs) – (sportscaster) Devonta Freeman– – Wow.
– Yeah! Woo! – (sportscaster) And he’s across
for the late touchdown. – Touchdown, Falcons! I didn’t wanna kick it too far,
that way the game could end right there,
as soon as I tackle you. – Come get me!
– You wanna do a safety? – (laughs)
– (chuckles) You just gave me two extra points.
– Why not? Overkill. – And that’s gay. I’ve never won a challenge
before in my life. – It was really fun.
I was getting really into it. – If it wasn’t for my brother
getting me into video games, I mean, I don’t think I would be playing with her
in the championship. – Thanks for watching us
