Andrew Luck a step closer to Madden cover

INDIANAPOLIS -- There were likely a lot of Indianapolis Colts fans crossing their fingers and toes hoping that quarterback Andrew Luck and receiver T.Y. Hilton were eliminated in the first round of the fan voting for the right to be on the cover of EA Sport's "Madden NFL 15" video game.

Here's the good news for the superstitious fans thinking about the Madden Curse: Hilton was eliminated by Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy.

Here's the bad news for those same superstitious fans: Luck easily beat out Washington running back Alfred Morris to advance to the next round against McCoy.
