For those who believe in the Madden curse, Victor Cruz is one step closer to getting onto the cover.

He destroyed Washington's Brian Orakpo in the first-round voting matchup by 82% to 18% to easily advance to the Sweet 16. Next up is the Jets' Darrelle Revis. So if you are a Giants or Jets fan who fears the curse, you can vote for the other guy in hopes of avoiding the curse. Or, if you think the curse is silly and want to see a Giant on the cover of the video game, you can vote for Cruz.

Something tells me Cruz is going to advance to play the winner between Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew and San Francisco's Patrick Willis. After that, Cruz could potentially face Carolina's Cam Newton, San Diego's Antonio Gates, Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald or Philadelphia's LeSean McCoy in the semifinals.

My guess is a Cruz-Cam semifinal showdown and frankly, I think Cam is the best bet to derail Cruz for all of you who believe in the curse. So let's hear it, are you guys worried yet? What do you guys want to happen? Tell us below.
