Eagles fans will love this new play addition to ‘Madden'


Philadelphia fans have been running the Philly Special at weddings and in their living rooms for the better part of the past year and a half.

Now, they can officially run it in the Madden video game when it's released this summer.

We learned of this news today on the "The Eagle Eye in the Sky Podcast" in which EA Sports' Anthony White shared the exciting news.

"It's under the pistol formation," White said. "One play is the 'Philly Special' and the other play is called 'Fake Philly Special.'"

He added it'll remain "Philly" regardless of what team you're playing with.

"A couple of other teams ran it last year," he said. "I know the Dolphins ran it. I think the Falcons ran it. Do we call it the 'Dolphins Special' or the 'Cleveland Special?' We're actually just going to call it 'Philly.'"

Sadly, Nick Foles is no longer on the Eagles' roster so when you run the play with the Birds you may have to pray that Carson Wentz's hands are just as good.
