When Seattle Seahawks runningback Marshawn Lynch gets in front of a camera, people stop and watch, despite how many words he doesn't say.

However he finally been caught on camera showing a bit of his personality and as it turns out, Beast Mode has a funny side.

Lynch appeared on the Conan O'Brien show and was even sat next to a man he will be fighting with on Sunday night as the Seahawks battle the New England Patriots at Super Bowl XLIX.

Patriots superstar tight-end Rob Gronkowski was the man to take on Lynch as the two NFL superstars join Conan for a game on Mortal Kombat X.

The men who are arguably the biggest offensive weapons for their teams seemed to be getting along pretty well however despite their big name clash this Sunday.


The three men sat down to take on each other at the video game in a segment titled clueless gamer big game showdown (which you can see below).

We get to see Conan doing some beat boxing and the three men begin to discuss prescription drugs.

Lynch makes a drugs joke and Gronk makes a 'man pill' joke as the two combine to give us a funny segment on Thursday night's edition of Conan.

Gronkowski and Lynch have kept the media busy this week as they countdown to the Super Bowl in their own respective ways.

As it turns out, they can have fun together and find a way to put their upcoming battle aside.

All eyes on Arizona

This Sunday will see Super Bowl XLIX live from Glendale, Arizona and the entire world wants to know, who will walk away with the Vince Lombardi trophy?

For the second year running, the #1 seed from each conference has made it to the Super Bowl with this being Seattle second straight appearance.

We will see the high octane offense of the Patriots led by Tom Brady take on the very tough defense of the Seahawks.

Meanwhile Russell Wilson and Lynch will try and find a way through the Patriots defense which includes Darrelle Revis and former Seahawks Brandon Browner.

The match gives us a lot of interesting match ups and it will truly be a clash of the NFL's best this season.
