It all started in the 1980s with something called a "video game," a love of football, and an intense rivalry between friends Darian Foster and Marshawn Lynch, Sr. And that rivalry -- viewed through prism of Madden -- gave the world two of the NFL's best running backs: Arian Foster and Marshawn Lynch.
