NFL Superstar Josh Allen Becomes the first Buffalo Bills Player to Grace a Madden NFL Cover

In a history-making moment, Buffalo Bills icon, Josh Allen, will immortalise his position in the sport, by featuring on the front cover of Madden NFL 24.

With immense talent and a remarkable passion for the game, the quarterback is undeniably one of the best players on the planet.

Through his incredible performances, the American has claimed the record for the most touchdowns (177) in five seasons. And unsurprisingly, this has prompted fans to utilise his outrageous ability in Madden NFL 23.

With his hype growing at a rapid rate, Allen quickly became the most-used player in the game.

Subsequently, EA Sports have taken note and featured him on the front cover of their next instalment. And the football legend couldn’t be happier.

The 27-year-old beamed: “As a fan of Madden NFL since childhood, I’m honoured to be the first Buffalo Bills player on the cover. I wouldn’t have gotten here without the support of my team and Bills Mafia. Superstar and mini-games are back in Madden, and I’m really excited for fans to see how the experiences have evolved.”

Fans don’t have much longer to wait, as the latest edition of the blockbuster game hits the shelves on August 18.


What can fans look forward to in Madden NFL 24?

EA Sports have revealed a plethora of new features that fans can get their teeth sunk into

  • Hit Everything: New contested catch tackles provide more control to play the receiver, and new tackle types like: Wrap tackles, Scoop tackles and all-new Hit-Stick animations add personality and more variety on defence. Dynamic branching tech now expands to blocking as well. 
  • Skill Based Passing: Skill Based Passing makes throwing and catching feel more fluid. An overhauled catching system ensures that receivers consistently maintain their momentum when catching the ball. It feels better than ever to hit a receiver in stride. This gives you more control to get loose and get up-field after the catch. A variety of new passing and catching animations capture the authenticity that players expect – dive catches, no-look passes and some game-changing moments never before seen in Madden. 
  • Foundational Football: Enhancements across blocking, ball carrier pathfinding, quarterback decision making and defensive back behaviours not only provide confidence your AI teammates will execute your gameplan the way you intend, but also deliver an authentic challenge.
