The good times keep rolling for the Kansas City Chiefs' rising star behind center. Patrick Mahomes Thursday evening confirmed he'll grace the cover of the latest "Madden" video game, Madden '20.

NFL.com reports the league's MVP of the 2018 season will be the first Chiefs player and eighth quarterback to grace the cover of the popular 'Madden' franchise. Madden '20 is the game's 31st addition.

Mahomes tweeted an image of the cover Thursday evening with the EA Sports marketing catchphrase, "it's in the game." He followed this with #Madden20.

In his first full season as a starter last year, Mahomes led the Chiefs to the AFC's top seed with a 12-4 final regular-season record. Kansas City narrowly missed an opportunity to play in Super Bowl 53, losing to New England in overtime in the AFC Title game at Arrowhead Stadium.

His performance led to several endorsement deals this offseason.
