Madden NFL 13 Cover Candidates: AFC North

Posted March 5th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

EA Sports continues their reveal of candidates for the upcoming 64 player tournament to capture the cover of Madden NFL 13. One division per day will be announced leading up to the start of voting in the round of dual team representatives on March 7th.

The favorite out of the AFC North to go deep in the tournament would have to be the Ravens’ Terrell Suggs. Winner of Defensive Player of the Year he has become a prominent outspoken public figure. The Bengals get their expected duo coming off impressive rookie campaigns while it’s safe to say that Browns fans won’t be pushing through another one of their players to an unexpected tourney win. The big surprise though is the inclusion of Ben Roethlisberger who’s off-the-field problems and resulting image were thought enough to keep him out of even initial consideration of any sort of promotional role with the series.

Baltimore Ravens: Terrell Suggs and Ray Rice
Cincinnati Bengals: Andy Dalton and A.J. Green
Cleveland Browns: Joe Thomas and Joe Haden
Pittsburgh Steelers: Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu
