Well sports fans, here we are. Last game of November coming up and the Broncos are breathing down the necks of the Jokeland Faders for first place in the division and looking in the rear-view mirror at.... who is that? Is that Phyllis Rivers and the San Diego Dolts? And now we have a chance head-to-head to avenge our week 5 loss and send the Dolts further into the AFC West basement. Follow me after the jump to see what the esteemed Madden has to say about this week's matchup. Here we go.

This has been the closest game I have played since I started this series. Given that, I was anxious to see what the simulations would show. For those of you who have not read any of the previous posts in this series, in addition to the game I play through in control of the Broncos, I also do five sims. Here are the results from this week's sims.
Sim 1: Denver 17, San Diego 14
Sim 2: San Diego 31, Denver 28
Sim 3: Denver 23, San Diego 10
Sim 4: San Diego 34, Denver 16
Sim 5: Denver 49, San Diego 31
Well, according to Madden, this should be a close, hard fought game. The sims came out to an average scores of Denver 26.6, San Diego 24. Hopefully my string of correct predictions continues and our boys in the orange in blue can match these results once again. GO BRONCOS!!
Which outcome do you think is the most likely? Please explain your reasoning in the comments.
