Steelers fans may be cringing at the prospect of seeing their star wide receiver on the cover due to the infamous “Madden Curse.” Multiple players featured on the Madden cover over the years have gone on to either suffer serious injuries or have down seasons statistically.

  • 2: EA Access and Origin Access members will be able to demo Madden NFL 19 on Xbox One and Origin for PC for 10 hours
  • 7: Madden NFL 19 Hall of Fame Edition owners will receive early access to the full game
  • 10: Madden NFL 19 will be available worldwide for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
