Patriots and Falcons go at it in For Honor … for honor The Super Bowl is this Sunday, Feb. 5, but Conan O’Brien used his talk show to crown a victor a few days early. The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons’ skills at For Honor, the upcoming multiplayer action game, may not directly translate to how they’ll fare during the big game, but that doesn’t stop the self-described “clueless gamer” from handing out a trophy to the best player. The Super Bowl Edition of Clueless Gamer is an annual tradition at this point, and this year big names like Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and Marshawn Lynch join O’Brien for this special kind of big game. Although For Honor doesn’t share any similarities with football, based on what we see in the video, the Patriots prove that it’s yet another game they’re especially talented at. It’s important to keep in mind that Clueless Gamer is not a prediction of Super Bowl 51.

Still, Brady and the Falcons’ Dwight Freeney go directly head-to-head in For Honor, and Brady easily comes away victorious. When extra help arrives — Rob Gronkowski joins Brady, while ex-Seattle Seahawk Marshawn Lynch helps out Freeney — the Patriots again prove that they’re pretty hard to beat. Super Bowl 51 kicks off at 6:30 p. m. on Fox this Sunday.
