WATCH: Lions-Giants Week 2 matchup on Madden NFL 18

The Lions are 0-1 so far this season in the simulation game, but look to right the ship against the Giants in Week 2.

Once again, we’re back with another Madden simulation to keep your appetite for American, professional football satisfied on a Saturday morning. We here at Pride of Detroit aim to please, so we hope this week’s simulation goes better than last week’s disaster against the Cardinals—that ended up being good karma and fortune for the real Lions, I’m sure.

This week, the Lions take on the Giants on Monday Night Football, but you’re going to get your first taste of action here, courtesy of our Twitch channel. The Giants’ offense is led by a 79 overall Eli Manning, which is probably the lowest he’s been rated since Madden NFL 06, his rookie season. New York’s defense, however, is loaded with players boasting high overalls including: Landon Collins (92), Damon “Snacks” Harrison (89), Janoris Jenkins (89), Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (88), and Jason Pierre-Paul (88). In other words, the virtual Lions’ offense faces a tough challenge in this week’s simulation.

Be sure to jump over to our live stream starting at 11:15 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 11:15, the stream will begin below.

It’s Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants. This time, it’s (not) for real.
