The sim Chiefs are back! Their oppononent this week is the Chicago Bears. Both teams are looking for their backup quarterbacks to lead them to victory. The Bears call on Caleb Hanie, while Tyler Palko and waiver wire wonder and former Bear Kyle Orton look to split snaps.
We will take the average of 5 Madden 12 simulations to come up with our final results for a score and player stats. Palko will start the first half and Orton will start the second half for the Chiefs.
The Bears were the winners of 3 out of the 5 simulations. 4 of the games were close, being decided by less than 6 points. Only 1 game was a blowout, it included 2 interceptions that were taken to the house by the Bears defense.
Palko was 8 of 18 (44%) for 104 yards with 1 td and 1 int.
Orton was 7 of 18 (38%) for 107 yards with 1 td and 1 int.
Dwayne Bowe had 6 catches for 64 yards and 1 td.
Derrick Johnson had 12 tackles and 1 sack.
Brian Urlacher had 3 sacks and 10 tackles.
Player of the Sim:
Matt Forte carried the rock 20 times for 123 yards and 2 tds.
Final Score: Chiefs 17 Bears 24
My Sim Conclusion:
In a game where most of the discussion is on the backup quarterbacks, these simulation games ultimately came down to da! Bears ability to score off of turnovers and the stellar running of Forte. The Chiefs struggled offensively and Orton did little in his sim debut to help the cause. Soldier Field is still standing tall after this one.
