There won’t be any Eagles on the cover of Madden NFL 15 this year. That news comes after Eagles running back LeSean McCoy fell to Colts quarterback Andrew Luck in the quarterfinals of the cover vote tournament.

Luck beat out McCoy by garnering 54 percent of the vote, as McCoy gained only 46 percent. Luck moves on to compete against Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in one semifinal. The other semi will be between 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the only non-quarterback left, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was ousted in the first round of the voting by Kaepernick.
