Madden 16 intro has Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl, and losing in last minute to Steelers again

New, comments

WHYYY?????

Well, the Arizona Cardinals are getting some love. With the new Madden 16 video, the intro shows a highlight film of the supposed upcoming Super Bowl 50. It features the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It shows Patrick Peterson shutting down Antonio Brown.

It shows the Cardinals having a two-score lead.

But then it gets ugly.

Carson Palmer throws a pick-six in the fourth quarter and then the Steelers recover the ensuing onside kick. You probably can guess what happens the rest of the way. This time it is not a controversial catch in the end zone by Santonio Holmes, but the Steelers go down the field and then, after all sorts of inspiring statements and cliche football talk, including what appeared to be Mike Tomlin not giving Ben Roethlisberger a play to run and Big Ben not caring about the playbook, there is heartbreak in the final minute.

Big Ben completes the pass to Antonio Brown in the end zone, with Patrick Peterson not quite able to make a play on the ball.

Heartbreak again,

You'd take that again, though, wouldn't you?
