NFL Week 7 Madden simulation: Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons

Can the virtual Lions finally pick up their first win?

If you thought the real-life Detroit Lions were frustrating to watch, wait until you see our weekly Madden 21 simulations. For whatever reason, virtual Matthew Stafford steps in quicksand for every five-step drop he takes, and has the accuracy of Mitchell Trubisky on his eighth drink. Unfortunately, it’s pretty accurate on the defensive side of the ball.

Thus far, the Lions are 0-5 in our simulations, though they did win on the bye week when we had them face off against the horrible New York Jets.

Could this be the week they finally turn it around? On the surface, it certainly looks possible. By overall rating, the Lions and the Atlanta Falcons both sit at 80. Both team, too, are remarkably healthy going into this game, with only one person listed on each’s injury report.

So come and join us at 10:30 a.m. ET as we run our Week 7 Madden simulation. If you’ve never watched our Madden sims before, it’s a fun environment where I will answer any and all of your questions, I’ll ask you some questions with polls and other fun stuff, and we’ll watch to see if Stafford can get the cement out of his shoes.
