Weekly NFL Picks with a lil’ help from Madden 10 – Week 1



Well ladies and gents this concept is not new at all – but I figured I’d give it my own spin. Every week I will be simulating the games scheduled via Madden 10.  Hopefully this will help you with your weekly NFL picks and if it doesn’t I still think it’s going to be fun to see if the Madden rankings and roster updates can stay true to form throughout the season and pick the winners each week accurately.

So without further ado – Week 1 picks presented you by The Sports Bra Reports!

Monday – September 14, 2009

Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots

Final Score:  Patriots 24 – Bills 14

San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders

Final Score:  Chargers 16 – Bills 9


OK, so there we go… The first week results as simulated via Madden.    A few notes you might want to take into account before making your picks, Browns winning over the Vikings is a huge upset, specially now that they have Favre.  Yet that might be the reason for the upset, Farve throwing a few picks and the Browns scoring a few TD’s off of those turnovers.

Another one that caught my eye was the Chargers vs. Raiders results.  Does Madden really think the Chargers will only score 16 on the Raiders?? I would be skeptical about that pick if I were you, not because of the Chargers winning but because it only has then scoring 16 points! On the Raiders! The Chargers will at least go for 35 points in that game – but we’ll just have to wait and see.

So there we go – Our Week 1 simulated results for the NFL Season.  Check back Tuesday morning to see if how we stacked up against the real scores and results.  All I have to ask before signing off is… Are you ready for some football!?!?
