Barry Sanders Defeats Adrian Peterson, Will Appear On Madden 25 Cover


You can breathe again superstitious Viking fans. Adrian Peterson will NOT be appearing on the cover of Madden 25. That honor will instead go to retired star Barry Sanders. The fans have spoken via internet poll and Sanders will grace the cover of the Madden franchise’s latest edition. Peterson made it all the way to the final of their big tournament but lacked the fan support to surmount Sanders.

Bad news for those who really wanted to see Adrian on the front of their over-priced video game. Good news for those who believe in curses, hexes, jinxes and other such phenomena. Do I believe in that stuff myself? Let’s just put it this way: I’d be very careful around ladders if I were Sanders. WATCH OUT FOR THAT PAINT CAN BARRY!

Just kidding. Superstition is for the childish-minded. Really people. Get into rational thought. It’s good for you.
