Before they do battle in Super Bowl XLIX: Seattle Seahawks Running Back Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch and New England Patriors' Tight End Rob "Gronk" Gronkowski would face each other in another gruelling contest. The game: Mortal Kombat X. The home field: Conan's Clueless Gamer segment. The result - embedded below:

There was button mashing, gruesome fatalities, a half-time live performance, ball grabbing, ball kissing, ball cradling, ball nap time, and questionable use of a severed head Super Bowl trophy. It may be the finest demonstration of Mortal Kombat X we've had the pleasure of reporting on over the past 8 months.

Super Bowl XLIX kicks off February 1, 2015 at the University of Phoenix Stadium, Arizona. Mortal Kombat X kicks body parts off April 14, 2015 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 & PC.
