When most NFL players prepare for an NFL playoff game, they usually either study the game-plan/playbook or they watch film of the team that they will face.

Baltimore Ravens rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith has a bit of a different approach to help him prepare for the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots. He does all the above things but also uses another scouting tool that most of us have in our homes, the video game “Madden NFL Football”:

“The biggest thing I know about New England is my brother always picks them in Madden,” Smith said. “They pretty much always have the best offense for some years in that game.”

“I would be lying to you if I say I did not know their names before we play them,” Smith says. “I mean, my brother plays with them all the time. It does not fail.”

Sadly, I don’t think any Madden Cards or cheat codes can be used in the AFC Championship Game.
