We're down to the final day of voting for the cover of "Madden 13," which according to our friends at SportsNation is a "neck-and-neck" battle between Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. ESPN's Zack McCann reported that Newton has a "small but vulnerable" lead in balloting that concludes Wednesday afternoon.
The winner will be announced at 5 p.m. ET Wednesday.
Johnson reiterated to Detroit-area reporters that he is "looking forward" to being on the cover of the wildly popular game if he wins the voting. Newton challenged Johnson to a live, one-on-one game of Madden in the video below, and on Tuesday, Johnson said: "Don't worry. Don't worry. I got something for that. Leave it at that. We've got something for that."
Newton has dubbed his push to win his "Cam-paign Challenge." We'll get a final answer Wednesday -- if you can bear the suspense.
