Just like old times.
The Madden 25 cover vote is down to four matchups, including Jerry Rice versus Deion Sanders.
The Hall of Fame players battled throughout their professional careers. The encounters were worth the price of admission, too.
Rice and Sanders were teammates with the 49ers in 1994 and helped San Francisco win a fifth Super Bowl. They’ve since moved on to media careers, Rice with ESPN and Sanders with NFL Network.
And now, they’re back in competition mode. Only this time, fans get to decide the winner. The Madden vote’s quarterfinal round lasts until April 10, so make sure to vote early and often.
Joe Montana also advanced to the next round of voting. He’ll face another Hall of Famer, former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders.
