Megatron vs. The Cover Curse
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will grace the cover of Madden NFL 13 after winning Electronic Arts' fan poll. But can he survive the Madden cover curse that has plagued previous winners? Johnson is coming off a stellar season in which he caught 96 passes for 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns, but we're already a little nervous about his ability to repeat the feat following recent comments that indicate he'd rather see fewer balls thrown his way as the Lions move toward a more balanced rushing-passing attack. Less Megatron? Megabummer. Madden NFL 13 is scheduled for an August 28 release on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
