Peyton Hillis rolled over Ray Rice by getting 62 percent of the vote in his first round matchup. He's now matched up against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan for the second round.

While Hillis is a 10 seed in the bracket (compared to Ryan's two seed), he has a great shot to upset the young QB.

The Cleveland Browns have a huge fan base filled with people who root for their team with an unsurpassed level of passion and intensity. With their votes, Hillis can pull off another upset.

And the NFL's Chuck Norris deserves it.


Here are some of his credentials...

When Peyton Hillis is doing a pushup he doesn't go up the earth goes down.

Peyton Hillis can perform inception... he can stiff arm a new idea into your brain.

For his career, Peyton Hillis has 172 broken Bears tackles. Not the Chicago Bears, Peyton Hillis has run over 172 actual bears.

Peyton Hillis doesn't have to do anything for a Klondike bar.

As a baby, Peyton Hillis's parents gave him a toy hammer, he then gave the world stonehenge.

Peyton Hillis' tears could cure cancer. However, Peyton Hillis does not cry.

Correct sentence structure, Yoda used. Before Peyton Hillis stiff arm, he met.

Peyton Hillis and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants.

Peyton Hillis smells what The Rock is cooking, because The Rock is his personal chef.
