WATCH: Watch the Week 14 matchup between Lions-Buccaneers on Madden NFL 18

The Lions playoff lives are on the line, and this simulation probably has absolutely nothing to do with it.

I understand morale around here is nearing an all-time low. Some people have blamed the coaching staff, others have blamed the players, and even some of you have blamed the writing staff here at Pride of Detroit for being negative about the team.

The Madden simulation is here to bring us together on Saturday mornings. It’s a chance, nay, an opportunity for you to slip back into those onesie pajamas, flip on your favorite device, and watch some animation over a bowl of cereal. Take it back to the days of Saturday morning cartoons. If you have kids, teach them a thing or two about how we used to do it back in our day.

With that being said, if the Lions lose this simulation to the Bucs, Detroit is definitely missing the playoffs in real life. That’s just too much bad juju. I know we usually root for a Lions loss in the Madden sim, but I think the tide is officially turning. Plus, the virtual Bucs are just as bad as the team is in actual football, so please, make this fun and dominating, Computer Ghost of John Madden.

Be sure to jump over to our live stream starting at 11:50 a.m. ET to keep up with the conversation and join a bunch of us who love to watch Madden be Madden. Also, these things are finally available On Demand through Twitch, so if you can’t make the live broadcast, no biggie, you have 14 days to go back and check out all the action you missed out on.

Once the clock strikes 11:50, the stream will begin below.

It’s the Detroit Lions vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This time, it’s (not) for real.
