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

His next opponent?
Patriots running back Danny Woodhead.

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.
