Aaron Brown FTW (In Madden)

I fired up the 360 to play an exhibition game with the Lions earlier today.  I decided to play the Broncos, and what transpired was a very entertaining game. 

At first, it looked bad for me and the Lions.  The only thing going for me in the first half was a safety, which was actually the result of a Matthew Stafford interception.

The second half was a completely different story. I got my comeback started with a TD pass to Brandon Pettigrew.

After kicking a field goal, I was trailing 20-12 late in the fourth quarter. I was worried about driving down the field for a score in time, as my offense only had one great drive so far in the game. Luckily, Calvin Johnson somehow got behind the safeties and Stafford threw a bomb in his direction, meaning I didn't really have to work my way down the field. (After the TD, I completed a pass to Kevin Smith for the 2-point conversion to tie the game.)

I nearly let the Broncos get into field goal range, but my defense came up with a sack and forced Denver to punt. I started to move the ball down the field, but again, a long, drawn out drive proved to be unnecessary. It wasn't because of Calvin Johnson this time, though. With my main receivers on the bench due to fatigue, Aaron Brown -- yes, Mr. Backflip himself -- came in and lined up at wideout. What happened next looked similar to what he did in the Falcons game, though he had to break some tackles this time.

Brown took the pass 49 yards for the game-winning touchdown. After trailing 20-2, I came back and won 27-20. The defense stepped up, as did the offense, especially in the fourth quarter with a couple big plays.
