CURSE BROKEN: Jackson defied the odds and excelled last season

Jackson followed that up by leading the Baltimore Ravens to an 11-4 record and a playoff win against the Tennessee Titans. He threw for 26 touchdowns and rushed for over 1,000 yards.

Needless to say, he pretty much buried the Madden Curse.

It's likely that this year will do the same, as we expect both Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes to have another huge year in the NFL and could each find their way into the 99 Club for Madden 22.
