Madden 13 Cover Vote: Calvin Johnson Beats Cam Newton In Finals

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson edged out Cam Newton in the Madden 13 Cover Vote, receiving 52 percent of the fan vote to 48 percent for Newton.

Nearly 20 million fans voted throughout the 32-player tournament, with 649,510 votes being cast in the final round.

Johnson defeated Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, Texans running back Arian Foster, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and former Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers prior to the final.

Aside from the close result in the finals, Johnson blew out his competition, with Gronkowski coming the closest to beating him with just 37 percent of the vote.

Newton defeated Bucs running back Legarrette Blount, Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis before falling to Johnson.
