In results everybody saw coming, Richard Sherman easily defeated Colin Kaepernick and Cam Newton took down Andrew Luck to reach the Madden NFL 15 Cover Vote Finals. This means that either a Carolina Panther or Seattle Seahawk will grace the cover of the game, leaving 9ers and Colts fan in the lurch. Both were the top seeds on their side of the brackets, leaving poor underdogs like Alshon Jeffrey and Antonio Brown in the dust.
Both Newton and Sherman will appear in a special segment during the 6 p.m. ET edition of SportsCenter on Friday, June 6 at LA LIVE Plaza where the overall winner will be announced. The final pairing carries special significance as the Seahawks and Panthers will meet in Carolina on October 26, and while one player will stand triumphant, the other will be looking for retribution.
Head over here to vote which player you’d like to see grace the cover of Madden 15.
