The Detroit Lions’ 2012 season hasn’t exactly gone the way they would have liked but last week’s performance against the Seattle Seahawks was a step in the right direction. Still, they trailed at the half to extend their string of halftime deficits to seven straight.
If ESPN’s Madden 13 simulation of this week’s game between the Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars is accurate, the Lions will finally take a lead into the locker room at halftime before eventually heading home with a victory.
The virtual recap reads like this:
Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense jump all over the Jaguars early in this one, with Stafford leading his team to a quick 24 points before the half, including touchdown strikes to Titus Young and Megatron. The Lions climb back to .500 with the victory.
The simulation gives the Lions a comfortable 30-10 win. Sound reasonable?
