Terrance Knighton helps team to Celebrity Family Feud victory

Two Patriots go head-to-head on Sunday nights episode of Celebrity Family Feud.

CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD - "AFC Defense vs NFC Offense and AFC Offense vs NFC Defense" - "Celebrity Family Feud" will feature football players from the AFC and NFC's Offense and Defense teams, on SUNDAY, JULY 3 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network. "Celebrity Family Feud" is hosted by Steve Harvey, the highly popular multi-hyphenate standup comedian, actor, author, deejay and Emmy Award-winning talk-show and game-show host.

Terrance Knighton wore his game face to Sunday night's NFL edition of Family Feud and it really paid off. Representing the NFC Defense (Knighton was a member of the Redskins prior to the filming of the episode), Terrance helped the team to victory over the AFC Offense, which featured teammate Marcus Cannon.

NFC Defense, which included Seattle Seahawks defensive end, Cliff Avril, Carolina Panthers linebacker, Thomas Davis, Philadelphia Eagles safety, Malcolm Jenkins and Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu, dominated the game to secure the $25,000 prize. The money will be donated to Got Your 6, a nonprofit that looks to help connect civilians and the military as troops return home from overseas tours.

Based on the public's survey answers, Terrance and his team seemed to understand what the majority thinks.  When asked about sexy food that you can put on a person's body, the team rattled off six of the top choices, whipped cream, chocolate, honey, strawberries, ice cream and ice. The team seemed to blank on the rest, but when the Offense couldn't steal the category; the Defense put 94 points on the board. One of the final answers, oysters, had many questioning America's choices.

For the Offense, Marcus joined Oakland Raiders wide receiver, Amari Cooper, Cincinnati Bengals running back, Jeremy Hill, New York Jets wide receiver, Brandon Marshall and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver, Steve Smith.

The team stole the next question, which asked what grooms wanted to see their brides walk down the aisle in, even though the Defense started off strong and took in the 74 points.  The AFC Offense took off running with the third question of the game, which asked who they were glad to see only once a year. Marcus answered with "his ex," but that wasn't enough to save the Offense as Thomas Davis stole the question with "Uncle Sam," securing the Defense's.

The Defense secured their win when the Defense took control of the final question about homemade presents. They answered all four of the top answers and Malcolm Jenkins delivered the final blow with one word: sweater.

As Terrance followed Malcolm Jenkins, host Steve Harvey remarked that most people run onto the stage to participate in the play of the night. Steve quickly stated he was glad Terrance didn't run considering his job on the field is to tackle people.

Terrance was clearly one of the night's MVPs as he secured the win for the team and provided some of the best responses to Sunday's survey questions. Though the AFC didn't win, the show still made a donation to their charity, Active Minds.
