Former Bronco Peyton Hillis Finalist For Madden '12 Cover With Michael Vick

The championship round of the Madden '12 cover voting has arrived in time to be settled for the week of the 2011 NFL Draft (winner revealed on April 27), and former Broncos and current Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis is going up against Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. This could be his toughest matchup to date.

Hillis started as a 10-seed and beat the Raven's Ray Rice, 62-38, to advance in the second round. He went up against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, squeaking out a 51-49 victory. His next opponent, Jamaal Charles, sent the Broncos' Tim Tebow home in the opening round. Hillis moved on to the Final Four with a 60-40 victory. He then upset No. 1 seed Aaron Rodgers, 61-39, for a chance to win the Madden cover ... curse?

Hillis' opponent, Michael Vick, is no stranger to the Madden cover or to its curse. Vick appeared on Madden 2004's cover, broke his leg during the preseason and missed the majority of the regular season.

Will Hillis and his supporters be able to pull out this victory?
