New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is not afraid of the Madden curse. 

On Friday, EA Sports announced that Brady will be on the cover of Madden 18. This marks Brady's first appearance on a video game cover since NFL Gameday 2003.

“I’m not one to believe in curses, so I’m ready to take the challenge head on like always! It doesn’t stand a chance!” Brady said.

He re-affirmed his fans that he's not afraid of curses with a hilarious video on Saturday.

The video game will be released on August 25.
