I don't know how many of you check THIS out, but each week ESPN simulates every NFL game using Madden '07. Accoring to that simulation, the Broncos will hand the Colts their first loss, in a high scoring game, for the Broncos anyway. Here is what they had to say --
Bell had two touchdowns, opening the game's scoring early in the first quarter and adding another short touchdown in the third that put Denver ahead 24-13. Peyton Manning responded by taking his team on a 91-yard drive that ended with a touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison and a successful two-point conversion to cut the lead to 24-21, but from there, Denver's defense tightened, allowing only one field goal while the Broncos kicked two of their own to close out the win
Peyton Manning had 211 yards passing and 2 TD's for the Colts, while Jake Plummer quieted some of his critics going 23/34 for 314 yards and a TD. Tatum Bell added 99 yards on 26 carries and 2 scores. David Kircus led the air attack, nabbin 4 catches for 110 yards. Rod Smith had a TD catch as well.
It's always fun to see what the computers think, and hopefully the sim is right on this one!!!
