'Madden' tourney results coming tomorrow
By James Walker
Will the Dawgpound have reason to celebrate Monday or suffer another disappointment?
Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis continues his improbable run through the "Madden NFL 12" cover tournament, and Final Four results will be announced tomorrow. Although numbers could not be revealed, as of last Thursday Hillis led No. 1 seeded Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is the favorite to win the tournament.
With a 64-128 record since returning to the NFL in 1999, Browns fans have treated this like their offseason Super Bowl and came out in droves to support Hillis. Cleveland's tailback also received support from fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals, who hope the "Madden curse" impacts a division rival.
Check with the AFC North blog Monday afternoon to find out if Hillis advances to the championship final to face the winner of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and Minnesota Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson.
