Richard Sherman, Cam Newton, Andrew Luck and Colin Kaepernick have advanced to Round 3 of the Madden NFL 15 cover vote. No real surprises here, except for maybe a few Shady fans. Andrew Luck squeaked out a win over LeSean McCoy by 8 percentage points. None of the others were very close.
Place your vote here. Round 3 voting ends on May 30th.
For those of you that are into this sort of thing, who are you pulling for?
Sherman, Kaepernick, Newton and Luck Continue Their Quest for the Cover
The Madden NFL 15 Cover Vote has reached the semi-finals, and four of the NFL’s most-talented young players vie to be the face of the storied franchise. The NFL’s hottest rivalry reignites, as Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman battles San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick once more. On the other side of the bracket, dynamic QBs Cam Newton and Andrew Luck go toe-to-toe for their shot at the final round. Will Kaepernick earn some measure of vindication after last year’s NFC Championship game, or will Sherman once again deny him the glory? Can Newton become the only player to ever reach the finals of the Madden Cover Vote twice, or does Luck prove he’s just as capable at winning off the field as he is on it?
The answers to these questions are in the hands of the fans, as they can go to ESPN.com/maddenvote to determine who they want to see in the finals. They can also campaign on behalf of their favored winner by using the hashtag #MaddenCover. The finalists will be revealed Friday, May 30, at 4:00pm ET on NFL Live on ESPN. The two finalists will appear and the overall winner will be announced live from LA LIVE Plaza in a special segment during the 6 p.m. hour of SportsCenter on Friday, June 6.
Madden NFL 15 delivers everything fans need to own their rivals on both sides of the field, including the most immersive defensive gameplay control in franchise history. Like the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks, you can pave your way to the Lombardi Trophy by building a stout defense fit to challenge the best offenses in the game. Fans will also experience an entirely new broadcast presentation that delivers Madden NFL game day like never before with dramatic all-new camera angles, as well as dynamic pre-game and halftime features. It’s not just football, it’s Madden Season.
Madden NFL 15 is developed in Orlando, Florida by EA Tiburon and will be available on August 26 in North America and on August 29 in the EU for Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and the PlayStation®3 entertainment system.
