Madden, Hillis results coming Wednesday
By James Walker
Will Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis be on the "Madden NFL 12" cover?
After receiving millions of votes since last month, ESPN's SportsNation will crown a champion of the 2012 Madden cover tournament on Wednesday. Hillis, a No. 10 seed, is facing Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and No. 3 seed Michael Vick in the finals.
Hillis, thanks to the tremendous support from Browns fans, has upset higher seeds four consecutive weeks. Hillis beat Baltimore Ravens tailback and No. 7 seed Ray Rice, Atlanta Falcons quarterback and No. 2 seed Matt Ryan, Kansas City Chiefs tailback and No.6 seed Jamaal Charles and Green Bay Packers quarterback and No. 1 seed Aaron Rodgers to get to the finals.
SportsNation is keeping the results under wraps, and there were no official updates on who was leading last week. Check back with the AFC North blog on Wednesday to find out this year's winner.
