Several New York Jets—Le’Veon Bell, Sam Darnold and more—appear in EA Sports’ new “Madden NFL 21” trailer Tuesday morning.
Like clockwork, EA Sports ensures it hits the regularly-scheduled marks during the calendar year, and on Tuesday, the company released the first Madden NFL 21 trailer and several New York Jets made an appearance.

Le’Veon Bell is the first Jet to appear under the new all-out control feature for the ball-carrier skill stick. He jukes a Buffalo Bills defender in what looks to be Orchard Park.
Perhaps no Jet gets as much time as center Connor McGovern, whose face is never shown but right hand and snap form are prominently featured.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback and reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson is the cover athlete for the game and isn’t concerned with the so-called “Madden curse” that’s taken out player after player through the years. He believes the curse may be over, and when looking at Patrick Mahomes‘s 2019 season (despite the injury), he might be correct.
Lamar Jackson need not worry about the “Madden Curse", as it might be finished, per @ESPNStatsInfo.
🏈Patrick Mahomes – Madden 20 – won Super Bowl LIV.
🏈Antonio Brown – Madden 19 – led NFL in Rec TD (15).
🏈Tom Brady – Madden 18 – lost Super Bowl LII, but Brady won NFL MVP.

I’m not sure Antonio Brown should be used, or even Tom Brady, whose Super Bowl loss isn’t a successful season by his measure. Either way, Jackson is the cover man and is featured big-time in the full trailer.
The game’s initial release date is scheduled for Aug. 25, 2020.
