Time to vote for Madden cover

For just a few minutes, let’s have a little fun and take a break from all the fallout over the New Orleans Saints’ punishments for their bounty program.

Let’s take a walk over to SportsNation where they’re conducting the Madden 13 Cover Vote. There already was a play-in round in which two players from each team were pitted against each other. Now, we’re down to just one player from each team and the competition is interesting.

In this round, we’ve got two head-to-head meetings of NFC South players. Carolina quarterback Cam Newton is a heavy favorite against Tampa Bay running back LeGarrette Blount. Newton is a No. 1 seed and Blount is a No. 16 seed.

In the other matchup, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees is a No. 4 seed and he’s going against Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, who is a No. 12 seed.

Go on over and cast your votes.
