What will happen when Mikel Leshoure finally sees the field in a regular season game? ESPN has completed their Madden 13 simulations for week three so we already “know”.
The Madden sim produced a 9 carry, 52 yard, one touchdown performance for Leshorue against the Titans defense. That, combined with 12 catches for 105 yards and two touchdowns from Calvin Johnson, helped the virtual Lions leave Nashville with a 27-17 win.
The virtual recap looks like this:
Calvin Johnson catches 12 passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns, including a 24-yard score on Detroit’s first drive, as the Lions take out the Titans 27-17. Matthew Stafford throws for 302 yards, while two Detroit backs combine to run for 95 yards to keep the attack balanced. Meanwhile, Chris Johnson has another disappointing performance for Tennessee, rushing for only 57 yards in the loss.
