New England Patriots quarterback and five-time Super Bowl victor Tom Brady will be on the cover of Madden NFL 18, the latest installment of one of Electronic Arts' most popular titles. Last year, it struck again, as Gronkowski was sidelined with an injury that kept him out of the playoffs, including the Super Bowl.

Could a curse be in store for the five-time Super Bowl champion?

Until this year. The New England Patriots star quarterback will grace the cover of "Madden NFL 18", EA Sports announced Friday morning. Every dollar buys four meals for the hungry.

There is always speculation regarding who the cover athlete is going to be for Madden. If you do not believe in the "curse", that's great, but it at least will give us something to debate over the next few weeks (months? season? whenever Brady befalls the curse and is injured?). It is interesting to point out that this is the first time teammates have been on the cover of "Madden NFL" in back-to-back years.

Tom Brady's accomplishments are impressive, to say the least.

Frostbite promises a significant visual leap not only to the players, but crowds, stadiums and more.

If you are picking up the game on Xbox One and happen to be an EA Access member, you can play a 10 hour trial starting August 17. Madden is one of, if not the largest, sports video game franchises of all-time.
