With a summer break in the NFL schedule, 20 players will appear on a one-hour telecast of Celebrity Family Feud on Sunday.
“It’s just like football. It’s a competitive sport,” said San Diego Chargers linebacker Melvin Ingram. “We all hate losing and we’re just trying to come out there and get a victory. I always watched ‘Family Feud’ growing up. I always had a dream of playing Fast Money.”
The back-to-back shows of Celebrity Family Feud will pit five players from AFC offenses against five players from NFC defenses, then five players from NFC offenses against five from AFC defenses.
“Just like we study our opponents on tape throughout the week, you do the same thing in this game. You study what they put up, knowing that when they make their mistake, that’s when you steal and you make some more points,” Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said. “That’s what we’re going to do to our advantage.”
The two shows will air between 8 and 9 p.m. ET Sunday on ABC, with each of the four teams competing for different charities. Steve Harvey – the Emmy Award-winning host, standup comedian, actor, author and deejay – will host the program.
“My defensive approach is to kind of feel my opponents out, see where those guys’ heads (are) at before the game and lean on my teammates throughout the game,” said Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu.
Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller will be looking to shut down Bridgewater and his NFC offensive teammates off the field in Sunday’s airing of the show.
“You’ve got to be quick on your feet in dancing on here on Family Feud to get the win,” Miller said.
