Amid screams of “Let’s goooo!”, pro Madden player Raidel “Joke” Brito won the Madden Bowl 2020 championship and its $65,000 prize on Saturday—all without throwing a single pass or even having a quarterback on his roster. 

Joke’s strategy of only using running plays in the Madden Bowl championship tournament sounds like a joke itself, but he clearly knew what he was doing. In the tournament, players draft teams with a salary cap restriction, and rather than spending big on a talented quarterback, Joke instead drafted Washington punter Tress Way to take snaps. With the salary saved by skipping the QB altogether, Joke was able to afford a strong offensive and defensive players with special abilities. According to ESPN, Joke also used the run-focused Oakland Raiders’ offensive playbook and Miami’s defense.
