Broncos vs. Bengals: Week 13 Madden Simulation
The Denver Broncos take on the Cincinnati Bengals. How does the game shape up in Madden? Can Denver keep the winning streak going? We find out here.
Who knew that after two victories the Denver Broncos would have a chance at making the playoffs? The chance is real. And Denver could get back to .500 with a win against the Cincinnati Bengals.
That would become the first step. Also, with a win, the Denver Broncos will surpass their win total from last season. Denver did not win their fifth game until Week 15 of last season. Denver might have their struggles on the road, but they normally fair well in the Queen City.
So, how do myself and Madden see the game being played out? Let us dive right into it.
The first quarter did not feature a whole lot. The only score from the quarter was on a Brandon McManus field goal. Denver would take a 3-0 lead going into the second quarter.
The play calling was pretty weird. Denver was focused on passing the ball. Case Keenum was intercepted early in the second quarter, which made things frustrating.
But as the first half was coming to a close, the Broncos offense and defense made a huge play. First off, Keenum found Phillip Lindsay in the end zone for the first touchdown of the game.
Then just as the Bengals were looking to answer, Chris Harris Jr. intercepted Jeff Driskel just under a minute later. Denver would take a 13-0 lead into the locker room for the half.
In the third quarter, Case Keenum drove the Broncos down the field and was able to find Emmanuel Sanders all alone in the end zone for the touchdown. Denver opted to go for two points, but were unsuccessful. Denver would take a 19-0 lead into the fourth quarter.
The fourth quarter featured a huge play by Von Miller to keep the Bengals off the scoreboard. Facing a fourth down, the Vonster came to play, sacking Driskel and forcing a fumble that would be recovered by Chris Harris Jr.
Denver could not do much with the turnover, but special teams would create another one as Issac Yiadom was able to get a huge tackle on the Bengals returner, which forced the ball to come out.
Phillip Lindsay would end the scoring with a big time run when it was not exactly needed. The shutout would be complete.
Now, I highly doubt that this game will end in a shutout, but it does mark a big victory for the Denver Broncos defense. They were able to keep Cincinnati off the scoreboard.
Phillip Lindsay had himself a solid game. His two scores are the most that I have been able to score with him. Sanders recorded 93 yards receiving.
The biggest story was the turnovers. Denver was able to get two big turnovers in the fourth quarter to put the game away.
