EA Sports announced today the cover vote winner who will grace the new Madden 25 cover later this year.
32 players from the National Football League were voted on through five total rounds since March 11, and fans have accumulated over 40 million votes throughout the entire campaign. With major players like Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Clay Matthews, and Ray Rice all eliminated, the finals were set between two elite running backs in their respective times: Barry Sanders versus Adrian Peterson.
Unfortunately, only one of these two great players can come out on top, though it's arguable that either player would be worthy of the honor of being published the cover of Madden 25.
The winner of this year's cover vote is...
With a total count of 700,241 votes, Barry Sanders received 58% of the overall votes over Adrian Peterson's 42%.
How does this result ring with Madden fans? Is there anyone in the running that you felt deserved the Madden 25 cover featurette?
