WATCH: Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals Week 3 Madden simulation

Join us for some fake football and Lions Q&A.

Last week, the real Detroit Lions were damn-near unwatchable. After a promising first quarter, the Lions suddenly didn’t look like they belonged on the same field as the Green Bay Packers, who outgained them 477-152 in the final three quarters—and outscored them 39-3.

But maybe the virtual Detroit Lions won’t hurt us as bad. Each week around 10-10:30 a.m. ET on Saturdays, we host a Madden 21 simulation. We take the upcoming matchup, adjust the rosters accordingly, and watch the computer Lions take on their computer opponent.

For the first two weeks of the season, Madden had been spookily accurate. Detroit lost the opener to the Bears 17-3, then got blown out by the robo-Packers 35-14.

But this week, the matchup is much closer. The Lions are an overall 78, according to Madden, while the Cardinals are just an 80 overall.

So join us Saturday morning to see if the Lions can end their losing streak, and while we watch, I’ll be answering your Lions questions in our Twitch chat. So head to our Twitch channel, or you can watch the video when it’s live below (around 10:30 a.m. ET today).
