Madden 21 has yet to hit the shelves, but it’s already off to a rocky start.
EA Sports released a beta version of the game last week, allowing a group of players to test out the game in order to get feedback before the full release Aug. 25. The game isn’t ready for the public just yet, so a few kinks were to be expected.
However, there was one glaring issue that fans couldn’t help but post on social media about.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, the reigning league MVP, was selected to be on the cover of this year’s edition of the game. Yet his headshot in the Beta was not his own but of Lamar Jackson, a cornerback out of Nebraska who signed with the New York Jets after going undrafted in April.
It was a simple mistake, but a glaring one when it involves the player on the front of the game. Though it will almost certainly be fixed by the time the final version of Madden 21 is released, this probably wasn’t the initial reaction EA Sports was looking for when it opened up the Beta.
