Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote Championship: Barry Sanders vs. Adrian Peterson


Today ESPN SportsNation announced that Barry Sanders will face Adrian Peterson in the final round of the Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote. The stage is set for an epic showdown as two of the greatest running backs of all time square-off. Voting highlights from the semifinals include:
  • 1 million votes cast for the semifinals, 50K more than last year’s vote totals for the semifinals. Over 38 million votes cast overall in the Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote.
  • Adrian Peterson posted the largest margin victory, with 68% of the vote against Arian Foster.
  • Barry Sanders won with a slim margin victory defeating Jerry Rice, 52% to 48%.
It’s all too fitting that the Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote Finals come down to Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson, two of the greatest running backs in NFL history. Sanders has cemented his place in NFL history with his 18,000 career yards, while Peterson came within nine yards of breaking Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record last year. Making the feat even more impressive, Peterson had his incredible year after coming back from surgery for a torn ACL in the offseason.

Fans are invited to cast their votes at ESPN.com/MaddenVote through their PC or mobile devices. For the chance to “Maximize” votes, ESPN and Madden NFL 25 have collaborated with Pepsi MAX to promote Twitter live voting every Tuesday throughout the campaign, where tweets with each player’s respective Cover Vote hashtag will count as two votes. Double votes ends at midnight ET each Tuesday.

The winner of the Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote will be revealed live on ESPN SportsNation at 8 pm EST on Wednesday, April 24.


What do you all think? Seems convenient that a year EA Football seems to be focusing on the running game that you get a championship matchup of Adrian Peterson and Barry Sanders.

Barry Sanders! If Madden is celebrating 25 years it needs to the greatest running back ever! To bad he left the game in his prime!

I think Pat Summerall needs to somehow be squeezed in the cover. RIP, Mr. Summerall!

I don't get it I voted for Adrian Peterson. Nothing against Barry Sanders but I guess we like dazzle without payoff. If this was NCAA yes Barry but NFL how did he get pass Jerry Rice and Joe Montana.

because it's fixed at the end of the day and they want to promote their new freestyle running feature. What better way to do that then have a RB grace the cover.

I would really like to see a dual cover again. They will announce a tie

Re: Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote Championship: Barry Sanders vs. Adrian Peterson

Something just don't seem right about this, two running backs in the finals? I find it hard to believe that both of these backs would beat out all the great Quarterbacks in this tournament. I think its setup to highlight Madden 25 big new game-play feature- new running mechanics like NCAA Football 14 has. I think Barry Sanders is going to win because he has been all over Sports Center lately.
