SALT LAKE CITYLocal players and NFL teammates Jamaal Williams and Penei Sewell had fun playing against each other in a game of Detroit Lions “Guess Who?

Guess Who? is a classic guessing game made by Hasbro.

According to the company, “each player chooses a mystery character and then using yes or no questions, they try to figure out the other player’s mystery character. When they think they know who their opponent’s mystery character is, players make a guess. If the guess is wrong, that player loses the game! Players can also challenge opponents to a series of games in the Championship Series, where the first player to win 5 games is the Guess Who? champion.”

The Lions decided to put their own twist on the classic children’s game.

Williams and Sewell faced each other and the former Desert Hills standout asked had a small “mystery character” of the former BYU star in front of him.

“Are you faster than this person?” Williams asked Sewell, trying to understand the secret. “Like you think you could beat him a 40 [yard dash]?”

“Could I?’ Sewell pondered out loud before stating he couldn’t with a smile.

Williams finished the year with 262 carries for 1,066 yards and a franchise-record 17 touchdowns.
