Football players are often idolized as the great warriors of American. However, what would happen if a handful of the gridiron’s brightest stars were thrown into the roles of America’s actual great warriors, Special Operations soldier? Enter: Battlefield 3: Operation Gridiron.
Operation Gridiron places NFL stars Drew Brees, Clay Matthews, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jared Allen in simulated war scenarios straight out of Battlefield 3 after a crash course from real Special Operations forces. Their objective is to work as a team to make it through without any simulated casualties.
Starting today, a new episode of the quartet’s efforts will be available on Battlefield 3′s Facebook page every Tuesday. On October 24, the series finale will air on Spike TV at 12:00 am EST. Chances are, on October 24 at approximately 12:30 am, we realize how silly SpecOps soldiers make football players seem.
