Hillis/RodgersUS PresswireThe Browns are pushing hard for the Peyton Hillis upset.

Led by an online campaign that includes front-page treatment on ClevelandBrowns.com, as well as ongoing Twitter and Facebook campaigns by his team, Peyton Hillis has jumped out to a shockingly large lead over Aaron Rodgers in the "Madden NFL 12" cover vote.

This would be the biggest upset of the tournament by far, as we have a running back who not too long ago was unwanted by the Denver Broncos (a team in desperate need of a back), going up against the reigning Super Bowl MVP.

But with the Cleveland sports scene showing up big for Hillis, could he take the vote all the way to the "Madden 12" cover?

Either way, it looks like this race is going to be a lot closer than I initially thought.
