Whether you want him to keep advancing or wish that he had been knocked out a few weeks ago, the fact remains that Adrian Peterson is one of only four NFL players with a shot to get himself on the cover of the upcoming Madden NFL '12 video game from Electronic Arts.
In the most recent round of voting, Peterson got himself a surprisingly easy victory over last year's cover athlete, Drew Brees, by a margin of 62% to 38%. This has set him up with a match-up against another man that has been on the cover of a Madden game once already in the past, current Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. (Vick was on the cover of Madden 2004. . .he then proceeded to break his leg during the pre-season and miss 12 games.)
The winner of the match-up between Peterson and Vick will move to the finals to take on either Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis or not-Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis.
Again, vote however you deem appropriate, depending on how strongly you believe in the "Madden Curse," by going to the website right here.
