Much like the real 2020 Detroit Lions, the virtual Detroit Lions are 0-1 after falling to the virtual Chicago Bears in last week’s Madden 21 simulation. It was a rough day for Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense, as they fell 17-3 to their NFC North foes.
But a new weeks brings a new opportunity. The Packers may close to a touchdown favorite this week over the Lions, but isn’t that just a bigger opportunity for the Lions to show that maybe they are the kind of competitive team that can hang with the big boys? The Packers may be riding high off a win over the Minnesota Vikings, but who’s to say the Lions aren’t better than the Vikings? Or maybe the Packers just happened to have a disproportional day to that of their actual talent.
We don’t know much of anything about any teams in the NFL right now, so why not just forfeit our beliefs to the computers. The computers are capable of processing information at speeds unfathomable to the human mind. Computers are able to reach across the parts of the globe in an instant, whereas it would take a human months to walk there.
What I’m trying to say here is that Madden 21 is real life. Forget what happens on the field on Sunday, the ultimate truth about these two teams will be revealed when the Lions’ zeros and ones battle the Packers’ zeros and ones on our weekly Madden simulation.
