While the trailer for this years iteration of the popular Madden NFL video game franchise came a bit later than we are used to, EA Sports finally dropped it Tuesday morning.

Following his appearance on last year's Madden 20 cover, Patrick Mahomes deviated from the so-called "Madden Curse" fate by rebounding from a mid-season injury and leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl victory. After this troubling pattern was broken last year, Baltimore Ravens fans and Lamar Jackson have to be pretty excited about the Madden 21 cover.

While the trailer shows off the new graphics, some new gameplay features and a few players in new uniforms, there will surely be more that gets unpacked in all areas leading up to the game's Aug. 26, 2020, release date.

"Maddenoliday" is always a big day for the sports and gaming worlds to converge, and this year, with live sports lacking and the NFL season potentially being in jeopardy, the world need that now more than ever.
