Bears vs Cowboys Week 2 Madden Simulation


Madden expert Sam rocked an awesome Bears prediction last week and actually nailed the 5 point differential in the Bears’ 19-14 win over the Lions.  He also hit on 10 of 16 games straight up in his Week 1 NFL picks.  He did so well with his picks, he gave me his exclusive Week 2 games simulated and his predictions found here.  Now, on to the Week 2 sim…
