Access Hollywood correspondent Maria Menounos is known as being a diehard Boston Celtics fan, but last night we found out she is capable of doing much more than just watching sports.

Prior to the Hall of Fame game, the NFL preseason opener between the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys, the Madden NFL 11 "Pigskin Pro-Am" was held on NBC.

There was a mixture of celebrities and former athletes on both teams, but it was Menounos who came away with the MVP, sacking Kurt Warner in the process.

Quinton Aaron, a.k.a. Michael Oher from The Blind Side, and The Office star Craig Robinson provided some bulk for each team.

Jerry Rice and Joe Montana along with Warner came through with the veteran support.
