When the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers battle in the NFC Wild Card round on Sunday at Lambeau Field, it will mark the first career playoff game for Giants defensive tackle Damon Harrison.
But, don’t tell the 28-year-old that he’s lacking in playoff experience, as he’s already been to the playoffs plenty of times in EA Sports’ Madden NFL video game series. He’s also been using the Packers in Madden, so he hopes that he’s learned a trick or two that will translate over to real-life football on Sunday:

“I just won the Super Bowl last night on Madden with the Green Bay Packers. I go to the playoffs every year on Madden, so I have some playoff experience. I was using Rodgers pretty good on Madden, so hopefully I know some of his weaknesses, because you know Madden doesn’t lie.”
Stopping Aaron Rodgers will likely be just a tad more difficult on Sunday than in a video game, but at least “Snacks” will enter the playoff game with some more confidence.
