Chiefs’ Jet Chip Wasp play coming to Madden 20

It took a while for the Philly Special to make its way to Madden. The defining play of Kansas City’s Super Bowl LIV victory will show up a lot sooner.

The constantly-upgrading Madden 20 game will include, in an upcoming update, a new play for the Chiefs’ playbook: Jet Chip Wasp.

EA announced the new play on its Twitter account Friday, after receiver Tyreek Hill (who caught the 44-yard game-changing pass) asked for it.

Peter King broke the play down thoroughly in his Super Bowl Monday Football Morning in America column. An NFL Films video released later in the week confirmed that quarterback Patrick Mahomes suggested the play, and showed how the Chiefs were able to execute it — thanks to Mahomes’ arm and Hill’s legs.

Madden continues to be the exclusively-licensed NFL/NFLPA video game. Patrick Mahomes is on the cover of this year’s version; the outcome of the season presumably blows the Madden Curse concept out of the water, for good.

  1. As far as the Madden curse, although Mahomes won the superbowl he did dislocate his knee and may need surgery this offseason. He should recover but there is still a little bit of the Madden curse lingering in the air.

  2. If they wanted it to be realistic they should always the chiefs linemen to hold for a few seconds to allow PM15 to get the ball off.

    No. Just, no. He won the super bowl and was named super bowl mvp. He crushed the curse. You act as if a player has to go all 16 games and then playoffs, with no injury whatsoever. It’s the nfl, bud. Every player in the league would willingly trade a couple of missed games for what mahomes accomplished this season.

  4. Most 9’er fans are good. But I see there are still some salty ones crying about referees. The refs didn’t cause Jimmy to overthrow a TD, or cause the o-line to “not block” Chris Jones allowing him to bat three passes. And the refs didn’t keep their supposed awesome zone running team to only get about 130 yards between 2 RB’s and a WR.

    The Chiefs defense shut San Fran down in the 2nd half. Give credit where credit is due.

  5. Survey says 99.9% of football America doesn’t ‘t care. Shut them down in the second half? I always thought the 3rd quarter was considered part of the second half, didn’t SF score 10 points?
