New Orleans quarterback and Madden NFL 11 cover athlete Drew Brees give the audience of last night's Tonight Show with Jay Leno a special gift for helping him overcome the Madden Curse.

The Madden Curse is not real, but if it was, Drew Brees figures he's managed to find a way around it. He points out that this is the first year the Madden cover athlete was chosen by the fans, and because of that, the Madden Curse won't affect him.

As a gesture of his thanks, everyone in the Tonight Show audience will be receiving a free copy of Madden NFL 11. As Leno suggests, if the entire audience dies, we might need to re-evaluate this whole curse thing.
