Patrick Mahomes on Making the New 'Madden' Cover and Winning the NFL MVP Award


After taking the NFL by storm and winning the 2018-19 MVP Award, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has hit another football milestone: He’s the new cover star of Madden NFL 20.

Making the cover fulfills a lifelong dream for Mahomes, who used to play Madden when he was younger against his father, former pro baseball player Pat Mahomes. In making the cover of Madden, Mahomes follows in the footsteps of numerous NFL stars, including Brett Favre, Michael Vick, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Odell Beckham, and Rob Gronkowski.

“It’s surreal to be on the cover,” Mahomes told Men’s Journal. “I never expected it this early in my career, it was always a dream of mine. When you look at guys that have been on the cover like Mike Vick and Tom Brady, iconic guys in this league, it really is a special thing to me.”
