“What does NE stand for?” my five-year-old son asked as we watched last night’s Super Bowl LI. I told him it stood for the New England Patriots. “No! Change it!” he shouted, lunging for the Xbox One controller. “It should be Atlanta versus Atlanta!” Oh right, Madden 17.
The next cover athlete for Madden will be Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, EA announced this evening. Given that the Xbox Store leaked this news earlier today, the only real shock here is that he’s wearing a shirt.
