EA SportsThe AFC West teams include some of the best players in "NFL Blitz."Tebow Time is coming to "NFL Blitz."
Miller Time is not.
But don't let the absence of Von Miller ruin the fun, as Tebow is one of those quarterbacks who plays the perfect "Blitz" game, running through tacklers, pitching the ball to his running back, and then even catching a pass out in the open thanks to the game's funky playbook.
Check out all the Broncos who made it into the game below, as well as their AFC West rivals from Oakland, Kansas City, and San Diego.
And in case you missed any of the previous reveals, be sure to click through the NFC East, NFC West, NFC South, and NFC North.
Looking at this Denver lineup really makes me wonder when they put this roster together. If it was late enough to trade Brandon Lloyd to the Rams, wasn't that enough time to see that Von Miller is a complete stud and someone who fans would want to play as in the game? The lack of Willis McGahee also makes this team feel out of date/touch. Then again, with Tebow as the quarterback, I expect this team to get a lot of run no matter who is in the lineup alongside him.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
EA SportsForget real life, all of the Chiefs are healthy in "NFL Blitz."Looking at the Chiefs roster makes you realize just how devastated this team was by injury this season. No worries, KC fans, in "Blitz," everyone from Jamaal Charles to Eric Berry is fully healthy and ready to play. And you know a guy like Charles has that video-game speed every virtual football fan is looking for.
EA SportsOakland's "need for speed" makes them one of the elite teams in the game.In "NFL Blitz," speed kills. So all you need to do is take one look at the Raiders lineup to know that they are going to be one of the best teams in the game. The combination of Darren McFadden, Louis Murphy, and Jacoby Ford is going to be tough for any defense to cover, and Carson Palmer has the type of arm in the game to take advantage of every mismatch.
SAN DIEGO CHARGERS
EA SportsAntonio Gates is ready to jump-catch his way into your "Blitz" heart.If you played "NFL Blitz" back in the day, you know that the passing game is about tall receivers who fly through the air and make jump catches. With Vincent Jackson and Antonio Gates, the Chargers should have two of the biggest (and best) targets in the game.
