Madden Predictions, Week 4

I don't really want to talk about what happened last week, so I will make it quick. We lost. Moving on now...

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

Madden Predictions, 2012, Week 3

Sim Average: Houston 27, Denver 12

Actual Result: Houston 31, Denver 25

Madden Play-through accuracy: 0-3

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, Oakland 20

I had an ugly run of bad luck in this game, with both McGahee and Moreno knocked out early, leaving me to try to run with Hillman and Ball. It didn't work. So, passing was the name of the game. Fortunately, it was enough.

And now, here are the results from this weeks sims.

Sim 1: Oakland 36, Denver 21

Sim 2: Denver 20, Oakland 10

Sim 3: Oakland 10, Denver 9

Sim 4: Oakland 22, Denver 13

Sim 5: Oakland 23, Denver 21

Sim Average: Oakland 20, Denver 17

Once again, the sims are going against us. This is a bit of a worrying trend, given their accuracy so far. I think though, that the players realize how important this game is, so if they are going to get things turned around, I think it will probably happen this week. Come on guys, prove me right! 17-2 till we ain't! GO BRONCOS!!!
