Madden Playoff Simulation

I had a day off before I start my new job, and I wanted to see what a simulation of the current playoff tree would yield. Pretty interesting results, definitely would be unexpected if it actually went down this way. Enjoy! Also, albums are some of my favorites from this year.

Wildcard Round: Packers 33, Vikings 7. Rodgers and the playoff-experienced pack held Peterson in check for 67 yards as Jordy Nelson nabs 2 TD catches en route to an insurmountable 24-0 first half lead. Ponder had a QB rating of 41.0.

Ten Stories


Wildcard Round: Redskins 19, Seahawks 14. In a battle of heralded rookie QBs, neither one looked sharp here. Both QBs threw for 1 TD and 2 INTs, although RGIII notched 80 yards on the ground. Seattle's final drive was thwarted by an interception inside the Skins' 30 yard line.

Southern Air


Wildcard Round: Bengals 23, Texans 20 (Overtime). A.J. Green avenged last year's playoff loss to Houston by thrashing them for 146 yards and 2 TDs. Dalton to Green was a nearly unstoppable combination, and The Bengals' underrated defense swarmed Arian Foster all day. When forced to air it out, Schaub looked tentative and forced a couple throws into coverage. The Texans won the toss in OT but went three and out; then the Bengals rode BJGE's 26 yard run into field goal range for the winning kick.

Wildcard Round: Ravens 37, Colts 32. In a higher scoring match than anticipated, Andrew Luck looked nothing like a rookie but still ultimately fell short. Rice had almost as many receiving yards as rushing yards (102 on the ground, 89 catching the ball) and Flacco was magnificent. The Colts overcame an early 21-0 deficit to come within a score of 31-24, but the offensive line couldn't protect Luck down the stretch as the Ravens held on for dear life with a 5 point opening round win against the upstart Colts.

Divisional Round: Redskins 35, Falcons 28. RGIII kept the magic alive for the Redskins, making several late completions and scrambles on his way to a game winning TD pass to Garcon with less than 30 seconds remaining. The Falcons were ahead all game long until the Redskins tied it 28-28 on a 12 yard Alfred Morris run. Matt Ryan was 21 of 28 for 343 yards, 3 TDs, but one costly pick in the 4th quarter that set up Washington's winning drive.
6Killing Joke
MMXII


Divisional Round: Packers 26, 49ers 8. Kaepernick had a hideous outing, posting a stat line of 14 of 30 for 182 yards, 0 TDs, 3 INTs as Green Bay waltzed right through San Francisco on their way to the NFC title game. Greg Jennings scored a 48 yard TD on the opening drive and the Niners never recovered, coming their closest when they pulled within 16-8 on a 1 yard Frank Gore plunge and successful 2 pt conversion.

Divisional Round: Bengals 42, Broncos 35. The surprise of the playoffs, the Bengals came out on the top of a shootout that saw 4 TDs get scored in the 4th quarter. Up 28-21 heading into the fourth, Manning guided the Denver on two straight scoring drives to take a 35-28 lead that they held for the better part of the quarter before losing a fumble inside their own 30 yard line. A 19 yard strike to A.J. Green tied the game, where a Denver three-and-out set up Dalton and co. at their own 35 yard line with 1:19 left. BJGE broke loose on a draw that took them into Denver territory, then Dalton found Green again on a 28 yard strike that put them up for good. Cincinnati's defense sacked Manning five times.

Resolution


Divisional Round: Patriots 34, Ravens 13. The Ravens' plea to get Ray Lewis another Superbowl before he retires fell short, as The Patriots triumphed over them for the second straight year. As the lone home team victors of the second round, The Patriots racked up a ton of yardage and points in the 3rd quarter despite a lackluster start and finish to the game. They actually trailed 13-10 at halftime before Brady exploded for 3 TDs in the third quarter. A lone field goal punctuated the final quarter, as neither team could seem to get out of their own territory.
9The Tallest Man on Earth
There's No Leaving Now


NFC Championship: Packers 41, Redskins 26. The Skins gave them a run for their money, but in the end they couldn't deny Green Bay their second trip to the Super Bowl in three years. Robert Griffin put on a courageous display in the passing attack, hitting Garcon and Moss for touchdowns. Aaron Rodgers threw for five touchdowns, however...four of which came in the first half, as the Packers led 31-13 at halftime and never trailed. Morris rushed for over 100 yards but didn't find the endzone.

AFC Championship: Bengals 24, Patriots 17. Another absolute shocker. The Bengals defense stopped Tom Brady on 4th and 5 at midfield to preserve a 24-17 victory with just under 50 seconds remaining. Green Ellis got his revenge with 2 touchdown runs from the 1 yard line, as Cincinatti overcame a 14-7 halftime deficit. A.J. Green was essentially a non-factor, with 4 catches for 42 yards, but Dalton was able to find other receivers open in the second half on Cincinatti's way to its first Super Bowl appearance in like, forever.

Superbowl: Packers 41, Bengals 28. It was a tough day for the underdogs. The Packers won this Super Bowl handily in a game that wasn't even as close as the score suggests. The Packers led quarter by quarter by scores of 14-0, 24-7, 31-14, and finally 41-28. Dalton and Green were connecting, but they couldn't match Green Bay's pace. Aaron Rodgers was 31 of 43 for 410 yards with 4 TDs, and also won the Super Bowl MVP award.
