NFL Week 8 Madden Simulation: Detroit Lions vs. Indianapolis Colts

Can the Lions finally pick up their first virtual win of the season.

The Detroit Lions’ 2020 season has had a nice turnaround thus far. After a disastrous 1-3 start that put head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn on the precipice of being fired, the Lions have rattled off two straight wins and now find themselves on the verge of a real streak.

Unfortunately, that turnaround hasn’t yet occured on the virtual field. In our weekly Madden simulations, the Detroit Lions remain winless after failing to make a late comeback against the Atlanta Falcons. Somehow, the virtual Todd Gurley was better programmed when it came to time management than the real one.

This week, the Lions will try to get their first virtual win against the Indianapolis Colts. It won’t be an easy task for Detroit, as the Colts currently hold a 85 overall Madden rating to the Lions’ 81.

If you want to see how it all plays out, come join us around 10:30 a.m. ET live on our Twitch channel. I’ll be there providing live commentary and answering all of your Lions (and Halloween) questions.

I’ll post the video below, too, so you don’t have to leave the site to watch.
