Calvin Johnson Wins Madden 13 Cover

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has won the not-so-coveted position of being on the cover of the Madden 13 video game.

“Megatron” edged out Carolina Panthers rookie sensation Cam Newton for the honor, although many fans prefer their star players stay far away from the game cover due to the ‘Madden Curse’.

The list of Madden coverboys that have been injured after being on the game include Daunte Culpepper, Marshall Faulk, Michael Vick, Shaun Alexander, Vince Young, Peyton Hillis, Ray Lewis, Troy Polamalu and others.

Perhaps Johnson making the cover is terrific news for all the Packers and Bears fans out there. The curse is real!

Here is the reveal ceremony from ESPN:
