EA Sports has been on the cover vote wagon as of late utilizing the fan vote system to determine the cover for the majority of its sports franchises over the course of the last couple of years and this year was no different. Two behemoths in the world of football squared off against each other: Legendary runningback Barry Sanders versus All-Pro runningback Adrian Peterson.
As expected, the voting was tight and Barry Sanders edged out Peterson with a 58% majority. This will mark the first time we’ve seen back-to-back Lions on the cover of a Madden game and it’s definitely something nobody could have predicted a handful of years ago.
