Arizona Cardinals star quarterback Kyler Murray nabbed virtual Madden 21 Pro Bowl MVP honors on Sunday night in a Pro Bowl like no other.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the NFL was forced to look for an alternative way to play its all-star game in order to protect players, coaches, and fans. Insert EA Sports. Dubbed Pro Bowl: The Madden 21 Edition, the exclusive publisher of simulation NFL games enlisted eight athletes and celebrities to team up and represent each conference in a stream of pre-recorded gameplay. NFL on FOX’s Michael Strahan and Charissa Thompson served as hosts.
Murray led the NFC to a 32-12 victory squad alongside Jamal Adams, Marshawn Lynch, and Nascar driver Bubba Wallace. The AFC which was held down by Deshaun Watson, Derrick Henry, Keyshawn Johnson, and Snoop Dogg had its share of struggles in the matchup. Initially, K1 controlled himself on the sticks, connecting with fellow Cardinal Deandre Hopkins for an early score before handing over a 7-6 lead to Wallace. Later, second quarter touchdowns from D.K. Metcalf and Dalvin Cook would allow the NFC to jump out to a 26-6 lead at halftime, eventually coasting to a 20-point win.
The best moment of the stream had to be Beast Mode breaking his chair while celebrating the game-sealing interception in the game’s final minutes.
