Let’s go back to Virtual Nostradamus …


Last week, in this space, I found the EA Sports Madden 2011 simulation, through ESPN.com, of the Jets-Patriots game to be a little out of whack. It wasn’t because I didn’t think the Jets could win, it was because I didn’t think they could win through their offense.

And then, they did.

The EA Sports sim had the Jets scoring 30 points, they scored 28. It had Mark Sanchez going 21-of-32 for 242 yards, two touchdowns and no picks — And he went 21-for-30 for 220 yards, three touchdowns and no picks. In fact, the only thing that was off was how close the game was, with EA calling it a three-point Jets win, and it evolving into a convincing knockout for New York.

Not bad, EA.

So this week, we gotta go back to EA Sports to see what they have happening, and you’ll like this one … Patriots 42, Bills 13. Tom Brady throws five touchdown passes, three to Randy Moss, while Fred Taylor grinds out 68 yards, and everything is good again for New England.
