Madden Predictions, Wild Card Week

We are in the playoffs!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! And you know what? I don't give a rat's ass how we got there. Once you make it to the tournament, all bets are off.

I would like to thank those of you on MHR who sent your well wishes, prayers and thoughts to my family over the holiday week. Just to update, my daughter is fully well and back to herself. And with no further ado, let's dive in to this weeks prediction! I am not going to run down previous predictions this week, because this is the postseason. It is an all new season and everyone is 0-0.

Final Score: Denver 24, Pittsburgh 0

I don't know what it was, maybe it was simply my excitement of watching Broncos playoff football, but I was hot in this game. The Broncos dominated from the opening kickoff, and the only time the Steelers even threatened to score, Dumervil and D.J. Williams sacked Big Ben on back to back plays to push them out of field goal range.

Relevant stats

Pittsburgh - J. Kapinos - 4 Punts, 167 YDS, 41.7 AVG.

And now, here are the results of this week's sims

Sim 1: Denver 9, Pittsburgh 7

Sim 2: Pittsburgh 20, Denver 0

Sim 3: Denver 6, Pittsburgh 3

Sim 4: Pittsburgh 14, Denver 7

Sim 5: Pittsburgh 9, Denver 0

Sim Average: Pittsburgh 10.6, Denver 4.4

So based on the averages, Madden predicts a close, low scoring game that Pittsburgh comes away with. Hopefuly, our boys in the orange and blue can make Madden look like an idiot and light up the scoreboard. But either way, postseason football has returned to the Mile High City. Enjoy it Bronco Country! GO BRONCOS!!!!
