Madden 17 Glitch Causes Spectacular Pick Six

080516-nfl-madden-17-rob-gronkowskiIf you're a football fan, then you've seen some pretty odd looking interceptions before. Everything from the classic Pittsburgh Steelers vs Oakland Raiders Super Bowl play nicknamed the Immaculate Reception to Brett Farve throwing the ball, having it bounce off of a lineman's arms and back to Farve. But you don't expect that kind of thing in a video game. Seems Madden 17 has a small glitch that allowed the following play. The Minnesota Vikings drop back to pass, the ball is a bit behind the intended receiver and it bounces back twenty yards to an awaiting linebacker who then takes it in for the pick six. That's just the way the coach drew up the play, right?
