Do you need something to do while you watch Verizon commercials during the time outs of the Cowboys game this weekend? There’s no reason to break your momentum – download the latest version of Madden for your Android phone, courtesy of Verizon. The network will allow customers to install the game free of charge from October 1-3.

It looks like you won’t be able to install Madden NFL 2012 from the Android Market, where the game is still sitting pretty at $6.99 USD. In order to download, you’ll need to call **MADDEN (**623336) from a Verizon Android phone. You’ll then receive a text message with a link for installing the game. That being the case, you might want to back up that file, since it won’t be stored in your Android Market purchased app list.

Madden NFL 2012 features a full roster of thousands of real NFL players, enhanced high-definition graphics for powerful Android phones, and an enhanced user interface that allows you to slow down time on either side of the ball for evasive scramble moves or punishing tackles. The number and the download won’t activate until tomorrow (it won’t work early, so save yourself a few seconds). While you’re waiting, check out the DROID Bionic in the latest Verizon commercial for the NFL Mobile service.
