Aaron Rodgers to Face Patriots Running Back Danny Woodhead in Next Round of Madden ’12 Cover Voting

+Read full article

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers advanced another week closer to securing the cover of Madden ’12—and the “curse” that goes with it—by convincingly beating Rams quarterback Sam Bradford. Of the 323,177 votes cast, Rodgers secured 76 percent.

His next opponent?

Patriots running back Danny Woodhead.

The shifty and diminutive Woodhead has taken down Rams running back Steven Jackson and Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks in consecutive rounds to get to the quarterfinals.

Rodgers also beat Lions defensive tackle Ndamakung Suh in the first round.

The winner of Rodgers-Woodhead will face the winner of Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Browns running back Peyton Hillis in the semi-finals. On the other side of the bracket, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will take on 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis and Saints quarterback Drew Brees faces Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.

Fans have from April 4 to April 11 to vote on the quarterfinal matchups.

The winner will be announced on ESPN’s SportsNation on April 26 after voting in the finals have concluded.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Watch Cardinals' Palmer Throw Ugly Interception

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
