The game, which features rosters from all 32 National Football League teams, was released in late August. A reported 1.65 million units were sold in the first week.
A four-year letterman, Simms was the Ohio Valley Conference’s (OVC) Offensive Player of the Year in 1977, and finished his MSU career with 5,545 passing yards and 32 touchdowns.
After his playing days at Morehead State, he was the New York Giants' first selection (seventh overall) in the 1979 NFL Draft.
Simms enjoyed a 15-year NFL career and held 19 team records when he retired.
As an All-Pro quarterback, he led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl titles. He completed 22 of 25 passes in Super Bowl XXI, defeating the Denver Broncos, 39-20, to give the Giants their first Super Bowl title and earning him MVP honors.
The Louisville Southern High School graduate established team marks for most passes completed and attempted for one game (40 completed, 62 attempted), season (286, 533) and career (2,576, 4,647), most career touchdown passes (199) and most 300-yard games in a career (21).
He was a Pro Bowl selection in 1985 and 1993 Pro Bowls and was the 1985 Pro Bowl MVP. He was named All-Pro in 1986.
Simms was inducted into the Morehead State Athletic Hall of Fame in October 1995 and the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame in June 2011.
He joined CBS Sports in 1998 and works with Jim Nantz on the network’s lead NFL broadcast crew.
