Who says playing video games is bad for you? Mike Gillislee is showing that playing video games, specifically Madden, can help you on the field.
The Buffalo Bills running back has rushed for 239 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries, averaging a ridiculous 10.4 yards per carry with the team, in four games with Buffalo. Why has Gillislee been so successful with Buffalo? It turns out that he knew Greg Roman's offense well thanks to Madden football.
Gillislee has five runs of 15+ yards in his limited time with the Bills and he'll receive quite a few carries on Sunday against the NY Jets. Being undefeated in Madden is one thing, but Gillislee's biggest win has been proving that he belongs in the NFL with the Bills. With a roster spot locked up for 2016, Gillislee can get one more win this season by running successfully on the NFL's number one run defense.
