This year’s big game sure looks like an exciting matchup. The high flying Atlanta offense sporting the league MVP at quarterback versus one of the all-time great QBs looking for ring number five. Since DDS: Pro Football developer Brooks Piggott just released an update to our 2016 game which included rosters from this season we thought lets fire up another edition of We Simmed It and find out who’s going to win the big one.
If our simulation is any indication of what will take place on the field we’re in for a real treat. Here’s the scoring recap by quarter
1st QUARTER :
Atlanta draws first blood on a 3 yd TD run by Tevin Coleman (7-0 ATL)
Tom Brady ties it up with a 21 yard TD pass to Julian Edelman (7-7)
2nd QUARTER :
The MVP pulls Atlanta ahead again with a 20 yard strike to Nick Williams (14-7 ATL)
New England drives and ends the half with a 17 yd FG by Stephen Gostkowski (14-10 ATL)
3rd QUARTER :
Not much action here until Tom Brady drops a 19 yard TD pass to Chris Hogan with about five minutes to go (17-14 NE)
4th QUARTER :
Matty Ice once again gives the ATL the lead with a 3 yard TD pass to Austin Hooper (21-17 ATL)
With just over two minutes to go in the game LeGarrette Blount punches one in from a yard out which looks like it will give Brady ring number 5 (24-21 NE)
But…just as a MVP would be expected to do…Ryan moves the team down the field but time is running out. Ryan drops back and finds Julio Jones (who else) who beats his man and then outruns everyone else to the house for a 60 yard TD to win the championship! (28-24 ATL)
We will see how it plays out tomorrow – if you want to see for yourself get yourself a copy of DDS: Pro Football 2016 – it’s even on a reduced price in our webstore. Here’s the box score from our simulation – definitely a classic!
