Madden 22’s MVP Edition Cover Somehow Doesn’t Feature the Literal NFL MVP
When EA revealed Madden 22’s cover earlier today, fans were quick to take note that something was amiss. Despite being the MVP edition cover of the annual NFL sim, it was lacking the most recent MVP.
That would be quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who led the Green Bay Packers to a 13-3 record and another NFC Championship Game appearance (he lost, a fact that brings me great joy as a Minnesota Vikings fan). Right now Rodgers in the midst of a tit-for-tat feud with the Packers (again, great joy), but that hasn’t stopped some fans from wondering about the lack of the current MVP.
From earlier today, the new Madden football game cover is out, featuring two MVP quarterbacks!

Instead, Madden 22’s “ultra-rare two-player cover” is set to feature Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady — two quarterbacks who graced Madden’s cover just recently. Mahomes appeared in Madden 20, and Brady appeared in Madden 18.
Madden had a pretty rough 2020, but as the only NFL sim in town, appearing on the cover still carries with it a certain amount of prestige. If not Rodgers, then Madden 21 could have gone with any number of candidates, such as Aaron Donald or Derrick Henry, or rising stars like Justin Herbert. Instead, Madden 22 is rolling with familiar faces in this version, and people are already bored. Maybe EA should bring back fan voting so Peyton Hillis can be on the cover again.
Either way, Madden 22 is on the way to the Xbox Series X, PS5, PS4, and Xbox One, and we have a preview up listing 10 major improvements. They include homefield advantage, the ability to hire offensive and defensive coordinators, and lots more.
Madden 22 releases August 20.
