ESPN and EA Sports teamed up to run a contest for the next cover athlete for the Madden 2012 video game.  It had a total of 32 players going up head to head with the fans voting to decide who moves on.  The finals came down to Peyton Hillis, the number 10 seed and unlikely candidate, and Michael Vick, the number 3 seed.  Hillis won suprisingly getting 66% of the votes, which means Vick received 34% of the votes.

During this process, there were almost 13,000,000 fans that voted.  Hillis’ road to the championship wasnt easy, he had to go through players like Ray Rice, Matt Ryan, Jamaal Charles, Aaron Rodgers, and Michael Vick.
