Armchair GM has the latest – and final – edition of its Tecmo Bowl simulations for this season.
Things looked bleak coming out of the first half, with the Patriots trailing, 14-10, and they didn’t get any better in the opening seconds of the second half. Laurence Maroney fumbled at the five-yard line, and Osi Umenyiora picked up the ball for a New York touchdown, extending the Giants lead to 21-10.
New England would later respond with a 25-yard Tom Brady to Kevin Faulk touchdown play. The Patriots would then recover a fumble with just over three minutes remaining in the game, and soon had another Brady-to-Faulk play to thank for a 24-21 lead, which ends up the final score.
The Grand Island Dependent of Nebraska, on the other hand, had a much different result – albeit with the 1991 rosters. The Giants won that one, 28-14, which is no surprise to anyone who’s ever tried to play with that awful New England team.
