Throughout the 2011 season, EA Sports and the Buffalo Bills teamed up to give one lucky fan the chance to win the ultimate gaming experience. On Wednesday 2011 the grand prize winner, Alex Bianchi, took to the virtual gridiron at the Orchard Park GameStop to challenge Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson in a Madden NFL 12 Showdown. Johnson was one of 32 NFL players up for the Madden NFL 12 cover athlete during fan voting last spring.  Cheered on by a crowd of over a hundred fans, Johnson showed off his Madden skills, defeating Bianchi 50-22. After the contest, Johnson signed autographs and mingled with the gathered crowd, each of whom  donated a new, unwrapped toy that will be given to needy children in the Western New York community. Here are a couple of photos of Stevie with Alex.
