The two Ravens stars have advanced to the second round of the 64-person, tournament-style bracket to decide who will grace the cover of the popular Madden video game. As part of the bracket, EA Sports selected one current player and one legend from every team to be voted on by the fans to determine who would be the cover star of Madden 25, which is the 25th anniversary of the series.
In the first round, Rice defeated Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly by taking 82 percent of the vote. Lewis took down Tampa Bay linebacker Derrick Brooks with 78 percent of the vote.
Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome was also in the bracket as a legend from his Hall of Fame career with the Cleveland Browns, but he was eliminated by Lions running back Barry Sanders in the first round.
Now Rice will face Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant and Lewis will take on former Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson. If Lewis were to win the bracket, then this would be his second time on the cover, as he was also selected to be on the video game in 2004.
Each round of voting lasts one week and fans can place their votes at: http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/feature/madden25cover.
