What is the “Madden Curse?”
The curse you receive for appearing on the cover of a Madden video game
Depending on how you look at it, upwards of 14 of 16 athletes to appear on the covers of the Madden video game franchise have gone on to immediately play a bad season or receive a serious injury. It takes a very brave football player to agree to be on the cover!
