Madden ‘Pigskin Pro-Am’ airs Sunday on NBC

To promote the impending launch of Madden NFL 11, EA Sports has teamed with NBC to air the Madden NFL Pigskin Pro-Am this Sunday, August 8 at 7:00 PM.

The Pigskin Pro-Am is a flag football game that teams NFL legends with Hollywood “celebrities.” The game will feature two teams — The Gamers (lead by coach Tony Gonzales) and The Famers (lead by Terrell Owens). Where do the celebrities come in? Well, James Van Der Beek (spoiler!) picks up six receptions for 71 yards and three touchdowns. And Access Hollywood correspondent Maria Menounos scores a touchdown, too. Really, this happened — tune in and see it for yourself on Sunday.

The full rosters for each team can be found after the jump. Madden NFL 11 storms retail shelves on August 10; Samit’s currently hard at work on the review, so stay tuned.
