The votes have been tallied in this particular first round match-up, and the soon-to-be Hall of Famer had a pretty easy time of it over a guy that might be making his way up the list of great centers for the Minnesota Vikings, but was clearly overmatched in this one.
Cris Carter scored a pretty easy victory over John Sullivan in their first round match-up. When the final totals were calculated, the totals wound up as 137 "recs" for Cris Carter and 7 "recs" for John Sullivan. I don't think anyone really expected differently from this match-up, but Cris Carter does move on to the second round.
In that second round match-up, he will be taking on the winner of the battle between the most recent member of the Vikings' Ring of Honor, linebacker Matt Blair, and kicker Gary Anderson.
Thanks again to everyone that took the time to vote in this match-up and the other match-ups that we've put out there thus far in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament.
