A new Madden Bowl XXI champion was crowned last night as Cardinals Cornerback Patrick Peterson defeated Eagles running back LeSean McCoy.  There was a lot of trash talk early from McCoy after he easily dispatched Colin Kaepernick in the 1st round.

After the 1st round of games (LeSean McCoy vs Colin Kaepernick) and (Patrick Peterson vs Alfred Morris) performers Nico & Vinz provided the Halftime show to a very small crowd then they were on to the finals.

Patrick peterson was focused and took an early lead by scoring on this 1st drive. For most of the game it went back and forth without anyone able to take full control.  With less than a minute to go and up by a TD everyone thought the game was over.  “Shady” Mccoy took a fumble back to the house with 40 seconds remaining but the call was overturned as Bo Jackson was ruled down.

After the controversial reversal Peterson was able to kick a FG to essentially put the game away. The final nail in the coffin came when Peterson’s rival Richard Sherman intercepted an errant Mike Vick pass on the sideline.

To make matters worse Peterson threw a deep TD with 3 seconds remaining to score again winning 17-0. A humbled McCoy accepted defeat as the new Madden Bowl XXI Champion held his winnings high and Kevin Hart appeared just in time for the photo op.
