Well, Panther fans don't have to worry about the "Madden curse."
Detroit receiver Calvin Johnson beat Panther quarterback Cam Newton in fan voting in the finals of the Madden 13 cover competition - a competition Cam had dearly wanted to win.
Newton had "Cam-paigned," as he put it, with a seven-minute homemade video seen by more than 148,000 on YouTube. But Johnson - nicknamed "Megatron" - still won.
The results were announced on a large temporary stage in New York's Times Square, with both players present.
