Madden '12 Cover Bracket: Jamaal Charles, Peyton Hillis In Elite Eight Contest

The Madden '12 Cover Contest continues into the Elite Eight this week, and former Denver Broncos player and current member of the Cleveland Browns Peyton Hillis is a member of the Elite Eight. He will face off against Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles.

Hillis is the lowest remaining seed in the contest at No. 10. He pulled an opening round upset in spectacular fashion by beating Ravens running back Ray Rice, 62-38. He squeaked by in the Sweet 16 over Maurice Jones-Drew, 51-49, to reach this current round of eight. Charles, a No. 6 seed, defeated Tim Tebow in the opening round, 64-36, and then also entered the Elite Eight with a 51-49 vote in his favor, defeating Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the only remaining No. 1 seed in the tournament, as San Diego's Philip Rivers lost to Adrian Peterson. Here is the remaining bracket:

Left Side
No. 1 Aaron Rodgers vs. No. 4 Danny Woodhead
No. 6 Jamaal Charles vs. No. 10 Peyton Hillis

Right Side
No. 4 Drew Brees vs. No. 9 Adrian Peterson
No. 3 Michael Vick vs. No. 7 Patrick Willis

Here are my guesses on who advances: Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Hillis, Drew Brees and Michael Vick.
