The last time the NFL played a game, Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes were on opposite sidelines in Super Bowl LV. Now, before the 2021 season kicks off, those quarterbacks will be together again -- on the latest Madden cover, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

Mahomes and Brady are sharing the cover of Madden 22, the EA Sports video game that has become part of the NFL culture. It's the first time two players are on the game's front in more than a decade.

"Whenever you first get on the cover, that's a special moment," Mahomes told ESPN. "So to be on it again, twice, with an all-time great like Tom Brady, it's a special moment that I'm glad that I'm able to do so soon after I had done it the first time.

"I'll be able to have it for the rest of my life and be able to show my kids and my kids' kids that I was on it two times."

One of Brady's neighbors as a kid worked at EA, and he used to play basketball near their offices. Just being in the vicinity of the game he grew up playing -- never thinking he would be on the cover -- was a thrill.

"To think that now, almost 30 years later, 25 years later, since the mid-90s, here I am representing EA on the cover of Madden with one of the other great players in the NFL right now," Brady told ESPN. "And just thinking how fortunate I've become over the years to put myself in this position to have these experiences in my life that I'm very grateful for.

"So it's a really cool thing. It's definitely a huge honor, and getting to do it with Patrick and the career he's had has been exceptional."
