Earlier in the week, it was announced that EA Sports would reveal the cover athletes for the upcoming Madden 22 title. Now that day has finally arrived, and we have our first look at the Madden 22 gameplay as well.

Just posted in a tweet to their official account, EA Sports Madden NFL 22 has revealed what many of us already suspected. Quarterbacks Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes will feature on the cover of Madden 22 after they went head to head in last year’s historic Super Bowl.

They were obvious choices after EA teased the cover with two Goats earlier this week. Here’s the first look at your official cover athletes for EA Sports Madden NFL 22.
