The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders face off on Monday night. How does the game play out between me and the computer? It was quite the game.
Denver and Oakland meet for the final time in the 2018 season. Both the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders will be playing for pride as both teams will not play January football.
If you think this game will not matter to either team, you would be wrong. These teams are bitter rivals and will look to get any sort of bragging rights. Denver will be looking to sweep the Raiders this season, which would give them ultimate bragging rights as this could be the last game in Oakland.
But how does this game play out in Madden? Well, we are about to find out.
The first quarter did not feature any scoring. The Raiders were driving down until Will Parks shut down the drive with an interception in the end zone for the touchback.
The second quarter was slow moving. It featured an interception by Trumaine Brock Sr. that put the Denver Broncos in great field possession. But Denver had to punt. However, as the first half was coming to an end, Brandon McManus was able to get a field goal to give Denver a 3-0 lead at the half.
The Broncos were unable to get anything going on the first possession of the second half and the Raiders would answer with a field goal. The Broncos would drive down, but not before the third quarter ended.
It is clear that the team with the ball last will win the game. It has been that kind of game. McManus would kick a field goal to give Denver a 6-3 lead. However, the Raiders were able to kick a field goal on the other side of the two minute warning to tie the game at six.
Denver would drive down the field thanks to big catches by Devontae Booker and Matt LaCosse and Phillip Lindsay was able to find some holes in the offensive line and get some solid runs.
As the clock winded down, the Broncos were in field goal range and got Brandon McManus in for a potential 39-yard game winning field goal. He was able to hit it right down the middle as time would expire.
It was quite the ugly game as neither team could get anything going on offense for the most part. And any drive that had promise would end with turnovers. Both teams turned the ball over two times.
Denver had a problem stopping Doug Martin as he was able to record over 100 yards on the ground. But could not do much other than that.
But Brandon McManus was the star for the Broncos, who provided the only points for the Broncos. He would hit all three of his field goals while Oakland’s kicker went two for three on his kicks.
Tune in next week as the Broncos take on the Chargers.
