As if Sunday’s showdown between the Seahawks and 49ers at CenturyLink field needed any more intrigue, it now appears the teams’ respective top playmakers - quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick - have a little side action going ... and it involves their eyebrows.
As you’ll recall, the two budding NFL stars appeared in a commercial for this year’s EA Sports Madden 25 video game. With a childhood summer camp as the backdrop, the commercial riffed on the idea of a long-term rivalry between Wilson and Kaepernick, showing the two QBs playing Madden throughout the years and into the present.
In a newly released Madden commercial that picks off where the summer camp commercial left off, Wilson and Kaepernick are seen betting an eyebrow on this weekend’s Sunday Night Football game. You can see for yourself above. Kaepernick gets in the final word, telling Wilson, “Hope you don’t like your eyebrow.”
So, Hawks fans, who do you think the big winner will be? My guess is the EA sports marketing department.
