As everyone’s attention is focused squarely on Arizona’s Valley of the Sun for Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX, Microsoft decided to to kick off the Super Bowl edition of Xbox One’s Game Before the Game. Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman and New England running back Shane Vereen battled it out Tuesday on the field in Xbox One Madden NFL 15 in front of hundreds of fans.
