The “Madden 25″ cover vote over on SportsNation is in it’s third week with former Detroit Lions and Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders pitted against soon-to-be Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis for a spot in the Elite Eight. Next up would be a matchup with the Joe Montana/Dan Marino winner.
The Lions are looking to grace the cover for a second consecutive year after receiver Calvin Johnson won the cover last year and parlayed that into a career season.
EA Sports has gone with a “Old School” vs. “New School” theme this year with the fans deciding which school ultimately reins supreme.
Both Sanders and Lewis have even gone to Twitter to recruit votes:
Lewis — Rock the vote!! – Would be honored to grace the cover again for Madden NFL 25 – Click http://espn.com/maddenvote OR Retweet – #Madden25RayLewis
Sanders — Both @audrhi and @jbbernstein really want me to win Madden25. They are giving away signed 8×10. What really matters is if you want me to win
