EA Sports choosing Lamar Jackson to grace the cover of Madden 21 was an absolute no-brainer.
In his first season as a full time starter Jackson threw for 3,127 yards, 36 touchdowns and six interceptions while completing 66.1 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 113.3. In addition, he rushed for 1,206 yards and seven scores, averaging a hefty 6.9 yards per carry.
On Tuesday morning the official cover and trailer was unveiled.
Go all out in #Madden21
