MIAMI  — Super Bowl week can be intense, but Travis Kelce and Richard Sherman found some time for fun.

As the two prepare for the biggest game of their life, they faced off in Madden NFL 20 on Xbox One for a good cause.

“Yeah, yeah, it was fun. It’s always fun to get out and play some video games and have some good laughs," Sherman said.

During the annual Xbox Sessions: Game Before the Game, the two were battling it out to win 50 Xbox One consoles and a copy of Madden NFL 20 for the charity of their choice.

Kelce played for his charity, 87 & Running and Sherman for Blanket Coverage, the Richard Sherman Family Foundation.

It was a battle until the end, but Sherman and the 49ers came out on top, beating Kelce and the Chiefs 21-16.

"Well there were a few things that happened in the beginning. I realized that Mecole wasn’t returning kicks, so I think setting the depth chart a little different as well as maybe I should have asked Spags on how to play defense so I knew what plays to call," Kelce said.

While Sherman has bragging rights and 50 XBox One consoles for underprivileged kids, he told 41 Action News it wasn't an easy win.

“We both were awful if I’m being honest with you. Neither one of us were really good at the game, we were just trying to see who could struggle less through it and apparently I’m the struggle-less guy today," Sherman said.
