Drew Brees a favorite in My Madden cover competition

Drew Brees could make the cover of Madden, again.

He's considered a heavy favorite in this year's Madden NFL 13 cover competition. Fans must determine if Brees or 15 other athletes will advance in the second round.

This week, Brees faces off against Ray Rice, a Baltimore Ravens running back, in the competition's quarterfinals.

Wednesday, Brees tweeted, "Thank you to all the Madden fans for voting me into the next round of the My Madden cover vote. Gotta beat Ray Rice this week. He's a stud."
