The Madden NFL 13 cover vote is down to its final four candidates with fans logging nearly 18 million votes at ESPN.com/MaddenVote since the competition began on March 7. Round 3 of the bracket-style phase of the Madden NFL 13 Cover Vote resulted in upsets such as No. 6 seed Calvin Johnson (WR, Detroit Lions) surpassing No. 2 seed Rob Gronkowski (TE, New England Patriots) and No. 11 seed Patrick Willis (LB, San Francisco 49ers) beating out No. 2 seed Victor Cruz (WR, New York Giants). Fan favorites Cam Newton (QB, Carolina Panthers) and Aaron Rogers (QB, Green Bay Packers) were also selected to advance to the semi-finals. For my money, I’m taking Cam Newton over Pat Willis in a runaway and Megatron over Rodgers simply because if fans didn’t vote Rodgers onto the cover after he won the Super Bowl I don’t think he has the support to do it now.
Cam Newton vs. Patrick Willis
Aaron Rodgers vs. Calvin Johnson
Over the next week, fans will be voting to determine which two candidates will move on to the final round of the Madden NFL 13 Cover Vote, culminating with the unveiling of the Madden NFL 13 cover athlete winner on ESPN’s SportsNation on April 25 at 5 p.m. ET. Round 4 voting is now open and fans can make their selections exclusively at www.ESPN.com/MaddenVote to determine which of the two NFL players will advance to the final round of the Madden 13 Cover Vote competition.
