NFL March Madness: Trent Richardson, C.J. Spiller tied in first-round voting

Joe Robbins

Voting for the first round of the NFL March Madness touchdown tournament is in the books and it was not a good round to be a favorite. Here's a look at all of the results from the first round and a re-vote!

No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament usually have an easy path through the first round, but the same cannot be said of our 2012 NFL offensive touchdown tournament.

First-round voting concluded on Friday and six of the top eight seeds were eliminated. Three of the four No. 1 seeds took an early vacation, with Adrian Peterson's run against Green Bay the only No. 1 seed left standing. The top seeds didn't just lose, many were blown out by their lower-seeded counterparts.

Here is a look at all of the first-round results.

East Region:

(8) Adrian Peterson Off To The Races defeated (1) Percy Harvin Has Moves On Moves -- 79 percent to 20 percent
(2) Doug Martin Muscle Hamsters Past Atlanta defeated (7) Mohamed Sanu Has Skills --69 percent to 30 percent
(3) The Packers Can't Stop Larry Fitzgerald defeated (6) C.J. Spiller Breaks Away -- 84 percent to 16 percent
(4) Jacoby Jones Super Bowl Spin defeated (5) Vick Ballard Dives FTW -- 56 percent to 44 percent

Peterson pulled the big upset by blowing out his former teammate. Jacoby Jones' Super Bowl touchdown was good enough to advance, but he will now face Peterson. Martin and Fitzgerald each advanced easily and will meet in the second round.

(5) Santana Moss Up And Over defeated (4) Golden Tate Goes Airborne -- 70 percent to 29 percent

The favorites took a beating in the North as No. 3 Dez Bryant was the only top seed to advance. No. 2 Chris Ivory lost by a single vote, 37-36. After upsetting the No. 1 seed, Jamaal Charles advances to face Santana Moss while Bryant will match up with Randy Moss.

Adrian Peterson won not one but two match-ups in the first round of the West regional. If the two Peterson candidates can advance past Jamaal Charles and Robert Griffin III, it will be an all-AP final in the West.
