EA SportsTom Brady is on fire, even if some of his favorite targets didn't make the game.
ESPN's exclusive "NFL Blitz" roster reveal countdown concludes today with the AFC East lineups.
From Tom Brady catching fire to Reggie Bush running wild for the Dolphins, here are the virtual ballers who you'll be able to play as once the game hits the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network January 4.
And in case you missed any of the previous reveals, be sure to click through all of the teams from the NFC East, NFC North, NFC South, NFC West, AFC West, AFC North, and AFC South.
EA SportsTime for the Bills to celebrate, "NFL Blitz" style.
If this was "Blitz: The League," Midway would've already added Stevie Johnson's "shoot myself in the leg like Plax" touchdown celebration. Then again, if this was "Blitz: The League," the game's storyline would also probably revolve around Sam Hurd. Anyway, the Bills are a middle-of-the-road team in the game, with Fred Jackson and Stevie Johnson as playmakers, but not too much else to get excited about.
EA SportsThe Dolphins are a quarterback shy of being an elite "NFL Blitz" team.
I love this team. Reggie Bush is a video-game bad ass, Davone Bess has the speed, and Brandon Marshall has the size. If they had a better quarterback, they'd easily be a Top 5 "Blitz" team.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Perhaps the most perplexing roster in the game, the "Blitz" Patriots feature two players who aren't even on the team anymore (Haynesworth and Bodden), not to mention, they put Chad Ochocinco in the game over Rob Gronkowski. Gronkowski is such a muscle-popping freak, he should not only be in the game, he should be on the cover. Instead, I'm throwing the ball to Ochocinco and hoping he doesn't drop it.
NEW YORK JETS
EA SportsThe Jets ferocious defense is looking for a fight.
One of the best teams in the game, the Jets have two receivers who can beat you deep, and a defense that can not only create turnovers, but turn those picks into points. Plaxico Burress can out-leap just about anybody in "Blitz."
