I Sincerely Cannot Understand What Happens In This Madden Glitch

It’s Madden glitch season! God bless it. The exact same game, every single year, yet somehow always with horrifying and wonderful new misfires.

Please watch this and luxuriate in the weirdness:


Okay so,

  1. Tennessee punts, and the Seattle punt returner picks up the still-live football at the 1-yard-line.
  2. The Seahawks returner is pancaked by a Titans lineman into the end zone.
  3. He never loses the ball, as the replay makes clear.
  4. It’s a touchdown?
  5. Tennessee gets the points, but it’s the Seahawks who starts celebrating and the Seattle return man who is credited with a one-yard TD return???

Update: Stefan Heck, of the GoOffKings Twitch stream, wants you to notice that the damn game’s box score doesn’t even agree with its own score graphic about which team scored:


This is the most joy this game will ever bring me, and that includes if I play it.

Please send those glitches.
