NFC South down to Brees for 'Madden'

Well, it looks like NFC South readers made a decent push for Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan after our earlier post on voting for the cover of “Madden NFL 12." But Ryan still came up a little short.

He lost narrowly (51 percent to 49 percent) to Cleveland running back Peyton Hillis and Ryan now is out of the tournament. That leaves New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees as the only remaining NFC South player in the voting.

Brees is up against Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson in the latest round of voting. By the way, Brees has a chance to be the first player ever featured on the cover in consecutive years and also has a chance to be the first player ever to make the cover twice.
