Peyton Hillis Upsets Michael Vick To Become The Madden 2012 Cover Athlete

The verdict is in. Peyton Hillis is on top of the Madden universe. This year’s Madden cover was the first in the game’s history to feature a playoff style vote from 13 million fans to determine the cover athlete. Peyton and Mike went through some tough competition, but in the end only one man is left standing.

In my opinion, Michael Vick may not have won the fan voting this year, but he has solidified his place in the NFL as one of the most popular athletes in the game today by making it to the finals. With that being said, congratulation to Peyton Hillis of the Cleveland Browns and good luck avoiding the Madden Curse.
