The winner of the 2020 Madden Bowl threw zero passes all tournament.
Esports competitor Raidel "Joke" Brito won the 2020 Madden Bowl tournament without throwing a single pass during the entire tournament. In fact, Brito went as far as to select a punter for his quarterback position.

Rather than spending his allotted salary on a top tier QB, Brito went with Washington Redskins Punter Tress Way.
"We had three major events during the season that led to this tournament," Tyler "TDAVIS" Davis, a Madden competitor and commentator, said, according to ESPN. "Joke finished fifth, third and third in those tournaments en route to winning the final tournament of the year. He was the best player by far in Madden 20. Going into this, he was arguably in the top 10 of all-time greats, and now he has to be considered in the top five ever."
"It's pretty cool that Joke won," Davis said. "Almost like it was destiny."
Some of Brito's most important players included Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark and former NFL safety Taylor Mays.
Brito became emotional accepting his title. He dedicated the victory to his friend Taylor "SpotMe" Robertson, who was killed in the 2018 mass shooting at a Madden tournament in Jacksonville, Florida.
Brito walks away with $65,000 and the 24-karat gold plate Madden Championship Belt, featuring over 700 Swarovski rhinestones and weighing 12 pounds.
