Get ready for the 'G.O.A.T.' Madden cover

Madden '18 is about get the G.O.A.T. treatment. EA Sports announced on Friday morning that Tom Brady will be the cover star of this year's Madden, making a Patriot the face of the video game for the second season in a row. 

Rob Gronkowski was front and center for last year's cover, and with an epic comeback in Super Bowl LI, getting a Patriot on the cover was a clear choice. Who better than the man who orchestrated the greatest come-from-behind win in Super Bowl history?

The "G.O.A.T. Edition" features Tom in signature "fire 'em up" stance, one that is familiar to Patriots fans as a sign that it's about to go down. The cover shows him mid-yelling his signature "Let's go!!" before a game, and it is sure to get fans across the country excited to execute their own epic battles on the football field -- albeit virtual.

While the more superstitious among us might worry about the "Madden Curse," Tom made it clear he's not stressing about any kind of bad luck in a video posted to his Facebook. Smashing mirrors, walking under ladders and a place on the Madden cover don't scare him. Check out the full video below.
