Despite being a No. 6 seed, Peterson is the higher seed in this matchup. He received a whopping 81 percent of the vote in his first round matchup against Jermaine Gresham. Three of Peterson's 2012 touchdowns remain alive in the Sweet 16 and if this one advances, it could face another Peterson touchdown in the Elite 8.

(7) Jamaal Charles Is Really Fast

Watch the play at

Jamaal Charles' 91-yard touchdown run proved to be more impressive than Marshawn Lynch's touchdown run in the first round as Charles collected 60 percent of the vote to win easily. Knocking off Peterson could be a bigger challenge as the NFL MVP was a big vote-getter in the first round.
