Marshawn Lynch and Lil Dicky square up in Madden NFL 22

Former NFL pro Marshawn Lynch recently played a game of Madden NFL 22 with rapper Lil Dicky. While Lynch played as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dicky played as Dallas Cowboys. The matchup was the 2022 season’s first game, which was played on Thursday with the Bucs winning 29-28 against America’s Team.

Dicky felt a lot of pain playing as the Cowboys because he hates the team. This is because he supports the teams’ NFC East rivals in Philadelphia Eagles, who will start off their season today against the Atlanta Falcons.

Marshawn takes home the win

During the game, both the players took part in a hilarious back and forth. The duo tried to throw in sly digs while complimenting each other most of the time. The organizers even poked fun at Dicky by showcasing his TV and music stats, as he doesn’t have a professional NFL career like Marshawn’s. However, he put up a great fight even though he threw a lot of interceptions. Marshawn wasn’t any better as well because he threw picks as well. However, he didn’t miss any opportunities to score touchdowns.

The game was close for a while before Lynch grabbed an important touchdown in the end with five seconds to go. Lil Dicky wasn’t ready to give up, even though the game was over. However, he threw another interception to put the game to bed. The game was truly hilarious, and EA Sports and the NFL should definitely pit more celebrities like this against each other.
