Every year EA Sports hosts the Madden Bowl, a chance for NFL stars to compete on EA’s digital gridiron. This year’s winners were the three-man team of New Orleans Saints players Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham, and Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Sports!

Ever year, the Madden Bowl takes place during Super Bowl week in the host city. This year, several of the NFL elite converged on the Bud Light Hotel in Indianapolis to watch Madden “Clutch Team” featuring Drew Brees (quarterback, New Orleans Saints), Jimmy Graham (tight end, New Orleans Saints), and  Tim Tebow (quarterback, Denver Broncos), rallied late to knock off the 2012 NFL Draft eligible “Rookie Team” of Justin Blackmon (wide receiver, Oklahoma State University), Robert Griffin III (quarterback, Baylor University), and LaMichael James (running back, University of Oregon), 16-13, capturing the Madden Bowl XVIII championship.
