Two G.O.A.T.s: Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes are on the 'MaddenNFL 22' cover
Although Tom Brady failed to pass the torch to Patrick Mahomes, he did encounter a future cover star.
Brady Mahomes and Brady will be sharing the front cover of Madden NFL 22, EA Sports announced on Thursday more than a year after the two players fought on the largest stage of the game.
EA Sports teased the pairing via a video that was posted on Monday, featuring the former Browns running back Madden NFL cover athlete Peyton Hillis and two goats. In the video, Hillis is shown taking his knees alongside the goats while speaking via phone. He then tells the unidentified person on the phone "they have done it again."
EA Sports came up with a concept that's never been attempted before for two generations of consoles. It's been 10 years since Hillis was featured on the cover of the Madden NFL series' annual entry, and it's been even longer since the game had an athlete with dual abilities on the cover.
Madden hasn't seen two athletes share the precious space that forms the front of the game, since Madden NFL 10 which was the year when Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Steelers safety Troy Polumalu appeared on the front, appearing as if they were about to collide. This was the ideal choice to play the game built around a cheap Madden nfl 22 coins unique mechanic that allowed players to battle for loose balls, and to compete for additional yards -- the inches that typically determine the outcome of a game.
