DENVER (CBS4) — A week after EASports mystified football fans with a particularly inaccurate depiction of Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay, the company that created and owns the popular Madden Football video game has proven to be a repeat offender.

Christian McCaffrey, the son of former Broncos Pro-Bowl wide receiver Ed McCaffrey and a standout Colorado high school athlete in his own right, received similar treatment as Lindsay.

Lindsay, also a popular Denver high school back, had the help of the Broncos in questioning the Madden20 look last week.

The matter was resolved in a matter of days; Lindsay’s profile pic feature his trademark afro.

McCaffrey reacted with humor to the snafu.
