Madden 25 Cover Winner: Barry Sanders!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Detroit Lions may not win very often on the field.

But the team has now gone back-to-back where it really counts: The Madden video game cover!

Following in the cleat-steps of Calvin Johnson last year, legendary running back Barry Sanders was voted the cover star of this wildly popular video game's 25th edition, beating out an impressive field in the process.

Sanders triumphed over Ray Lewis, Marcus Allen, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice on his way to the finals, defeating Adrian Peterson in the championship yesterday.

“The Madden NFL franchise has such a rich tradition and history, and there’s no better way to celebrate our 25th Anniversary than by having one of the best players of all-time on the cover,” said Anthony Stevenson, Senior Director of Marketing for EA SPORTS.

“Barry Sanders has long been a fan favorite, so we’re proud to have him as the face of Madden NFL 25.”

Sanders played his full 10-year career with the Lions, rushing for 15,269 yards and 99 touchdowns before shocking the sports world when he retired after the 1998 season.
