Madden: New England Patriots - Danny Woodhead (0:34)

You still have a few more days to select which players advance from the first round of the Madden 12 cover tournament.

ESPN.com video game writer Jon Robinson blogged some updates Thursday, and New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is having a tougher time than expected with Miami Dolphins left tackle Jake Long.

Other surprises include Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow getting thumped by Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles.

The battle between Buffalo Bills receiver Steve Johnson and New England Patriots running back Danny Woodhead wasn't mentioned.
