ESPN SportsNation has released the Madden Cover Vote Final and the two contestants going up against each other for the right to call themselves a Madden cover boy are Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson. This match-up puts two of the greatest running backs of all time up against each other with Barry Sanders who is arguably the most famous Detroit Lion’s player of all time and Adrian Peterson who is the Minnesota Vikings work horse who came within nine yards of breaking Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record last season. If anyone two players deserve to potentially be on the cover of Madden 25 it is Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson. Sanders cemented his place in NFL history during his playing days by totaling 18,000 career yards and Adrian Peterson who is a certain future hall of famer if he keeps up his ridiculous pace of superstar play.
Fans are the ultimate deciding factor in the contest because they are the ones who pick the player they want on the Madden 25 cover which will celebrate the creation of Madden NFL football 25 years ago. Fans can make their voices heard in this vote by casting their votes at ESPN.com/MaddenVote through their computers or mobile devices like smart phones. Also ESPN and Madden NFL 25 have collaborated with Pepsi Max to promote Twitter live voting every Tuesday throughout the campaign where tweets with each player’s respective Cover Vote hashtag will count as two votes with double votes ending at midnight eastern time each Tuesday. The Madden Cover Vote Finals end Wednesday April 24th at 8pm with the winner being announced on ESPN’s SportsNation; so April 23rd is the next day fans can use twitter to double vote for either Peterson or Sanders.
Since its creation 25 years ago, Madden has grown to be loved by millions of fans and critics have fallen in love with the game each and every year. Madden NFL has earned the honor of being the NFL’s “33rd” franchise because of the authentic game play the video game brings to fans, the Madden’s development team’s access to NFL resources, and the game’s prominent place in the NFL culture. All player participation has been facilitated by the NFL Players Incorporated and the marketing and licensing subsidiary of the NFL Players Association.
