Giants DT gets extra preparation for Green Bay by playing ‘Madden’ as Aaron Rodgers

New York Giants defensive tackle Damon Harrison will make his NFL playoff debut on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. That doesn’t mean, however, he’s lacking playoff experience. He has plenty of that, thanks to playing Madden.

“I just won the Super Bowl last night on Madden,” Harrison said. “I go to the playoffs every year on Madden so I have some playoff experience.”

Harrison also noted that “Madden doesn’t lie” and that he’s been studying up on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers with the video game.

“If you make [Rodgers] go to his left, he’s not as accurate as when he goes to his right,” Harrison said, via Newsday. “Because the video game can’t compensate like he can in real life.”

If Harrison has a big game on Sunday, we’ll know why.
