Chiefs' third-and-15 Super Bowl play vs. 49ers added to 'Madden 20'

Chiefs' third-and-15 Super Bowl play vs. 49ers added to 'Madden 20'

Super Bowl LIV. 49ers vs. Chiefs. Fourth quarter. Third-and-15 ... you know what comes next.

It's a play Niners fans would love to forget, but one that Chiefs fans can't watch enough. Unfortunately for 49ers fans, the highlight has been shown, talked about and broken down repeatedly for the last week and a half. And now, it's being added to EA Sports "Madden NFL 20."

In case you've been living under a rock, here's the play known as Jet Chip Wasp:

Tyreek Hill, the player on the receiving end of the Patrick Mahomes deep ball, took to Twitter to put in his request for the play to be added to Madden.

EA Sports quickly responded to the Chiefs receiver, telling him that his request is coming soon.

Those fans who can't get enough of the third-and-15 play can now run it on their own with video game Mahomes and Hill.

And for those 49ers fans who still can't believe it happened, perhaps stopping the third-and-15 play on "Madden" can make you feel a little bit better.

Warriors Gaming Squad to draft last two roster spots on Feb. 22

Warriors Gaming Squad to draft last two roster spots on Feb. 22

Warriors Gaming Squad will go into the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft on Feb. 22 looking to fill up the last two remaining spots on their roster. The 2K League Draft, taking place at Terminal 5 in New York City is four rounds long. However, WGS only will have picks in the first and fourth rounds.

After each season, teams can protect two of six players from their roster to bring back for the following season without penalty. If a team wants to protect a third player, that team will lose a third-round pick in the following league draft.

WGS protected CB13 (PG), Bsmoove (SG), and Gradient (SF) from last season's team, forfeiting their third-round pick.

The players who are not protected are then entered into the expansion draft for new teams to fill out their roster. Type (C), who was on WGS last season, was taken in the first round of the expansion draft by Hornets Venom. Because WGS had a player taken in the expansion draft, they were allowed to retain a fourth player, but it would cost them their second-round pick.

The team decided to retain Jin (SG), which now leaves WGS without picks in the second and third rounds.

Chiquita, who was on WGS last season and the first female drafted into the 2K League, was not protected or retained after the expansion draft, which now makes her draft-eligible for the other 22 teams to select in the upcoming league draft later this month.

Last season was a mixed bag for WGS. They finished the regular season just 7-9, but they won two out of the three mid-season tournaments, including The Ticket which secured them a spot in the playoffs. WGS beat Blazers Gaming in the first round of the playoffs. They eventually lost in the second-round to T-Wolves Gaming, who eventually won it all.

Golden Guaradians add Teamfight Tactics, Super Smash Bros. Melee competitors

The Golden Guardians (GG), an esports affiliate of the Golden State Warriors, are continuing expansion efforts with the additions of competitors David “DogDog” Caero (Teamfight Tactics) and Zain “Zain” Naghmi (Super Smash Bros. Melee).

“We have added two of the top competitors in DogDog and Zain, who will compete in Teamfight Tactics and Super Smash Bros. Melee, respectively,” said Hunter Leigh, Head of GSW Esports, LLC. “DogDog has proven himself as a champion over multiple game titles, and Zain just recently earned a premiere tournament win in Oakland. We can’t wait to support them both on their roads to earning more titles.”

Teamfight Tactics is a round-based strategy game created by Riot Games, the maker of League of Legends, that pits players against seven opponents in a free-for-all race to build the most powerful team and become the last person standing. Super Smash Bros. Melee, the second installment in the Super Smash Bros. series, is a crossover fighting game that features characters from various Nintendo franchises in which two or more players aim to knock opponents off of the battle stage.

Caero is a former Hearthstone pro, earning multiple championships including at the Masters Tour 2019 Las Vegas. A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Caero previously streamed for Team Liquid from 2015-2019. Caero joins Andrew “TidesofTime” Biessener, Rebecca “Becca” Cho and Jeffrey “DeliciousMilkGG” Pan, who will stream under the Golden Guardians name in TFT and other autobattler and card games including Legends of Runeterra and Hearthstone.

Naghmi was most recently named the Genesis 7 Super Smash Bros. Melee champion with his most recent tournament win on January 26 in Oakland. Prior to Genesis 7, Naghmi placed first at DreamHack Rotterdam 2019 and Shine 2018 in Boston. The Virginia native joined the professional Super Smash Bros. Melee professional scene in 2015 and graduated with a degree in business information technology from Virginia Tech in 2018.

In December, the Golden Guardians announced an expansion to sponsor competitors in Apex Legends, Teamfight Tactics (TFT) and World of Warcraft (WoW) in addition to the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS). In addition to announcing three new titles, the Golden Guardians unveiled a new logo and color scheme for the brand. For a link to the logos, CLICK HERE.

Founded in 2017, the Golden Guardians are an esports affiliate of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors. The Bay Area-based organization currently sponsors professionals competing in Apex Legends, League of Legends, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Teamfight Tactics and World of Warcraft. The Warriors also own and operate Warriors Gaming Squad, one of 23 teams who compete in the NBA 2K League. For more information on the Golden Guardians, visit goldenguardians.com.
