The Best Tweets From The EA SPORTS Madden NFL 18 Bowl

The Madden NFL 18 Bowl was one for the history books, and the spectacular finish won’t soon be forgotten. If you missed any of the action from the weekend, catch up with this in-depth recap. Now that we’ve had some time to digest just how epic it was, let’s take a moment to re-live the day via some of the best tweets surrounding the event.

But, first things first, you’re going to want to watch the entire Madden Bowl because it was absolutely insane. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that 20-year-old Shay “Young Kiv” Kivlen took home the Madden NFL 18 championship title. But if you don’t have time to watch the whole game, I totally get it (well, I don’t really get it – cause it’s awesome! But watch it at some point, if not immediately). With that, we’ll start with a few highlights.

Here’s a look back at the fourth quarter.


If you’re short on time, enjoy this condensed version.


Let’s now rewind to the morning of the big game. Young Kiv appeared on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” alongside Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and noted gamer, Juju Smith-Schuster. The thing about Adam Rank is, the man has good ideas. We see you, Rank.


Juju was pumped to meet Young Kiv, even though Kiv demolished him in Madden NFL 18 on live television.


Here’s a little behind the scenes shot with the “Good Morning Football” hosts watching Juju and Young Kiv duke it out in Madden NFL 18.


Young Kiv’s fans were watching as he became instantly famous.


Time to get serious. Check out that hardware.


Young Kiv was off to a dominant start in the Conference Championship game against Abbott “Blocky” Lopez. Meanwhile, our broadcasters were dealing with harsh conditions.


Support for Young Kiv came flooding in from the Madden NFL community after his win over Blocky, guaranteeing him a berth in the Championship game. Greatness recognizes greatness.


Folks were more than impressed as Young Kiv headed to the title game with confidence.


The stage was set, and our broadcasters Scott Cole and RG Glick got comfortable with Juju in the announcer’s booth.


Time for some gameplay action. Young Kiv, a Seattle native and Seahawks fan could teach his favorite team a little something about running the ball at the goal line.


After an unforgettable finish, Young Kiv hoisted his very first Madden Championship Series belt.


Kiv even got a little trash-talk in with Juju after the big win. The kid’s got swag oozing out of his ears.


After the game, many of the Madden Ultimate League competitors chimed in with well-deserved congratulations for the champ. Displaying good sportsmanship, even Drini “Drini” Gjoka congratulated his opponent, though it probably hurt.  


Blocky, who Young Kiv defeated in a shutout during the Conference Championship, showed some love too.


And Eli “True” Clayton, who was knocked out by Drini in the other Conference Championship game, shared some behind the scenes footage of the big moment.


True followed up with his congratulations.


Young Kiv let his emotions fly, and he clearly was feeling the moment.


Juju was feeling it, too.


Some of the other Madden Ultimate League competitors shared their thoughts on Young Kiv’s victory.








The next day, Young Kiv took some time to reflect on what he had accomplished and just how monumental this moment was. What a day. What season. Well said, Young Kiv!
