Madden Predictions, Week 5

42 in. LED TV - $425. DirectTV with Sunday Ticket - $35/month. Snacks to watch the game - $30 Giving the Raiders their worst loss in the series in 50 years - Priceless. That game was as fun to watch as last year's Wild Card game. Impressive performance in all phases of the game. Rec'd! And at last, the Madden simulations were flat wrong and the play-through got one right!

Let's take a look at the results of this season's predictions so far.

And now here are this weeks predictions. For those of you who have not read this series before, I play through each weeks game once in control of the Broncos. In addition to this, I also sim the game. I do a total of 5 sims each week to obtain a decent sample size. Here are the results of the play through.

Final Score: Denver 28, New England 7

This game followed a very similar script to the way the against Oakland went on Sunday; slim half-time lead, second half beat-down. The Patriots got the opening kick-off and after a couple of punts were exchanged, Manning got a scoring throw to Tamme. The Patriots came right back and tied it. After the two minute warning, Brady had the Pats on the Denver 6 yard line, but then was hit while throwing the ball. the pass was picked off by Steven Johnson who returned it 98 yards for a score. After half-time, it was all Broncos.
