What most Lions fans feared has happened: Calvin Johnson has advanced in the Madden Cover Contest. Johnson was matched up with the Texans Arian Foster in the round of sixteen and beat Foster even though Foster was trying to tweet his way to the cover.

The others who advanced out of the round of 16 were Aaron Rogers, Ray Rice, Rob Gronkowski, Larry Fitzgerlad, Patrick Willis, Victor Cruz and Cam Newton.

The 3rd round match-ups are:
(2) Cruz vs. (11) Willis
(1) Rogers vs. (5) Rice
(1) Newton vs. (4) Fitzgerald
(6) Johnson vs. (2) Gronkowski

Do the Lions and Calvin Johnson avoid the Madden Curse by voting in Rob Gronkowski?
