Madden NFL 11 Simulation: Falcons 27, Browns 10

Last week, the Madden Simulation predicted a two-point win for the Falcons over the 49ers and I mocked it's video game naivete. This is my apology. Never again will I doubt the all-knowing EA Sports engine. If it warns me of a close game against a winless team, I will listen.

Now, on to this week's sim.

The analysis via ESPN and EA Sports:

The Falcons are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now, and they capitalize on their momentum to beat up on the Browns, 27-10. Matt Ryan threw for 254 yards and two touchdowns, while Michael Turner added 169 yards -- including an 85-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter -- that helped put the game away for Atlanta.

Player of the Game: Michael Turner

Highlights:

  • Turner's huge game. A 169-yard game with an 85-yard touchdown to ice it? That's a prediction I could get behind.
  • Roddy White is projected for 7 receptions, 96 yards and one touchdown. That's his baseline nowadays.
  • Jake Delhomme throws a pick. We covered the likelihood of that here. SPOILER ALERT: It's high.
  • And in news that makes me hope it comes true, the Falcons hold Peyton Hillis to 50 yards on 11 carries and no touchdowns.
