EA Sports Trolls Seahawks With Epic Super Bowl Tweet



Madden NFL 16

Seattle Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch is the top-rated overall running back in Madden NFL 16, according to player ratings released this week. But the Seahawks apparently were unhappy with Beast Mode's 98 Trucking rating--and they let developer EA Sports know.

What they might not have expected, however, was an epic comeback from EA Sports involving that play from Super Bowl XLIX. Take a look at the Twitter exchange below to see how it all went down.

It didn't end there, however.

As GameSpot sister site CBS Sports reports, people are still talking about Seattle's decision to throw from the one-yard line in Super Bowl XLIX. Clearly, the topic still has legs.

Madden NFL 16, which features Odell Beckham Jr. on the cover, launches August 25 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, as well as last-generation consoles like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. If you're an EA Access member on Xbox One, you'll be able to play it a little sooner.

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced a new 1TB Xbox One bundle that comes with a copy of Madden NFL 16 and a 12-month EA Access membership.
