Lions Get the Week One Win in ESPN's Madden 13 Simulation

We will find out how the Detroit Lions fare against the St. Louis Rams in a matter of hours but the folks at ESPN ran a Madden 13 simulation to help get an idea of how the game might play out.

The result? A 34-17 win for the Lions on the strength of Matthew Stafford’s right arm.

The virtual recap goes like this:

Calvin Johnson spits in the face of the Madden Curse, catching nine passes for 129 yards and two touchdowns to help the Lions take down the Rams 34-17.

Matthew Stafford came up huge in this one, throwing for 338 yards and four touchdowns to lead the high-octane Detroit offense, a unit that was relentless against the lowly Rams, padding the stats of fantasy owners worldwide.

Speaking of fantasy, look out for Danny Amendola of the Rams. He should be Sam Bradford’s favorite receiver this season. Amendola had a 40-yard touchdown in this game to prove it.

Speaking of the madden Curse, there is no Madden curse.
