It has been officially announced by EA Sports that Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Pat Mahomes will be the cover athlete of Madden 20.
The honor of being the feature athlete comes with fame, glory, a decent chunk of change and maybe something a little more ominous… A curse, the Madden Curse. The wise tale as old as the game itself. It seems like whoever the cover athlete is always has either a terrible season or some kind of career altering injury. Career high fumbles, getting bench, fractured fibulas and elbows, interceptions on interceptions, falls from grace and skydives into irrelevancy never to be heard from again.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at a break down of the Madden Curse from CBS Sports.
Haven’t even heard the name Peyton Hillis in years. The curse does skip a generation every now and then so there is hope for Mahomes. Just don’t be surprised if he throws 30 interceptions this year.
At least he didn’t take a picture with Drake or date a Kardashian.
