NFL Madden 15 Week 3 Simulation Results

Minnesota Vikings @ New Orleans Saints

It is clear that Madden 15 really likes the Minnesota Vikings. Last week it predicted they’d roll over the New England Patriots, and now it is predicting an easy win over the New Orleans Saints.

Of course, having running back Adrian Peterson for both games certainly helped. We already know he didn’t play last week, and it appears that he might not be available for the Viking this week as well after this week’s statements from league and team sponsors. (We now know he wont play on Sunday.)

For the Saints, it was another bad defensive performance. They gave up 6.1 yards per rushing attempt, which allowed the Vikings to control the flow of the entire game. By the time quarterback Drew Brees and the passing game got going, it was too late.
