Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes may not be gracing the cover of E.A. Sports’ Madden NFL 24 video game, but that hasn’t stopped him from being involved in one of the coolest moments in the trailer.
Madden NFL, a highly popular American football video game series developed by EA Tiburon for EA Sports, has decided to pay tribute to Mahomes‘ exceptional performance by featuring one of his most famous throws in the game.
What is Madden NFL?
Madden NFL, formerly known as John Madden Football until 1993, is a franchise named after Pro Football Hall of Famer coach and commentator John Madden. It has been the only officially licensed National Football League (NFL) video game series since 2004. Madden NFL has not only entertained millions of gamers but has also influenced many real-life players and coaches of the physical sport.
The release date for Madden NFL 24 is scheduled for August 18th, and unlike most games of it’s genre, it is unlikely to face any delays.
How Madden pays tribute to Mahomes’ special performance
The recently released Madden NFL 24 trailer showcases one of Patrick Mahomes’ most memorable throws: the diving throw he made during the Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Despite the Chiefs’ 31-9 defeat, his remarkable play left an impression on both players and fans alike.

The inclusion of this iconic throw in the Madden NFL 24 trailer serves as a reminder of Mahomes’ exceptional talent and his ability to captivate audiences with his athletic prowess.
Mahomes has also graced the cover for Madden NFL 20, and in Madden NFL 22, he shared the cover with fellow Super Bowl MVP quarterback Tom Brady.
But this year Josh Allen will be featured on the cover. While it’s exciting to see Mahomes’ remarkable throw featured in the Madden NFL 24 trailer, it remains uncertain whether players will be able to replicate the move during gameplay.
