The Bengals nominated rookie defensive end Carlos Dunlap to enter a tournament to select the player that would grace the cover of one of the nation's most popular video games: Madden '12. Unfortunately, Dunlap was knocked out by Pittsburgh Steelers wide wide receiver Hines Ward in the first round.
Against the Bengals, Hillis ran for 161 yards on 41 carries and one touchdown, winning one of the two games. Throughout the entire season, Hillis ran for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns, helping the Browns escape the AFC North basement.
