Hall of Fame running back and former Detroit Lion, Barry Sanders, beat out the Minnesota Viking’s Adrian Peterson to grace the cover of “Madden NFL 25.”

As is custom, the winner was announced Wednesday night on “SportsNation” on ESPN2. Sanders won by garnering 58 percent of the more than 700,000 votes cast on the final match-up. There were 40 million votes tallied throughout the entire competition.

Sanders, spent his entire 10-year career with the Detroit Lions, rushing for 15,269 yards and 99 touchdowns before just walking away from his career after the 1998 season. Many analyst often say had Sanders not walked away from his career after just 10-years, he may have been the best running back of all-time in the NFL.

This is the second year in a row that a Detriot Lion is on the cover of the Madden games. Last year, the Lions’ wide receiver Calvin Johnson had the honor of being on the cover of the popular game.

And although Johnson may have broken the “Madden Curse” last year by not getting injured while being on the cover of the game, I’m sure Viking’s fans are NOT upset that Adrian Peterson will NOT be on the cover of the game. For years, the game has cursed several NFL players once given the honor to be on the cover of the popular game. Many of the players that have graced the cover of the game have sustained season-ending injuries, thus many of the current NFL players have happily avoided the honor.
