Article below to explain, it's a cool thing ESPN is doing, they are letting MADDEN CPU simulated games play and post the scores up on they're site to see if it comes true lol.. I kinda like that idea.

Saints clamp down on Ravens' attack

The Saints continued to be this year's most surprising team, and after emphatically winning on the road at Baltimore, maybe it's time for people to start taking them seriously. Drew Brees threw for a touchdown in each half and the Saints added a rushing touchdown as they built a 21-6 lead while clamping down on the Ravens' attack, holding Baltimore to just 251 yards of offense in this game.

Bress opened the scoring by hitting Joe Horn late in the first quarter from 22 yards away, and Mike Karney's dive from the one-foot line midway through the second period made the score 14-3 at halftime. When Brees connected with Marques Colston in the third quarter for New Orleans' third touchdown, the game was all but over. Musa Smith's touchdown early in the fourth wasn't nearly enough to get Baltimore back into this game, as the Saints stayed atop their division for yet another week

I've checked that site every week now to see their "predictions." Unfortunatly its quite easy to see that they aren't actually SIMing the games since their predictions go with the current trends in almost all games.

What's this Madden Forecast's record for the year?

It's nice to know that we're playing on the road this week... "emphatically winning on the road at Baltimore" =\

I don't believe you can go back to see their past predictions nor do they keep track openly on their site. They did however go 100% one week.

If this madden thing was 100% at any point it might be good enough for me to check it out, The power ranking thing is getting a little out of hand with everybody picking favorites and all.
I think most sites should start use Video games just for fun to post up on they're sites.

Funny that it shows us winning on the road in Baltimore. :shrug: Clayton had something about that earlier this week too. Apparently some of the information was messed up at ESPN U. :shrug:

I doubt its been very accurate although we may be an unfair example. They had us going 1-5 so far.

It'd be interesting to see how accurate its been, but that'd take some time.
