What Madden 21 predicts for the Chicago Bears Week 5 matchup vs Bucs
Unfortunately, Madden 21 was wrong about the Chicago Bears beating the Colts last week. Now, going into Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they are 3-1 in real life and 4-0 in the Madden 21 simulated season. We simulated Bears vs Bucs to see a possible outcome of the game.
The Bears fell in this one to the Bucs 24-21. It would be a tough loss for the team if they were to lose a close game, but it would be better than the game versus the Colts. They barely missed out on an epic comeback in this game, scoring 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.
Here are some of the key stats from the game:
- Nick Foles – 25/32 completions, 265 yards, two touchdowns, one interception
- David Montgomery – 18 carries, 108 yards rushing, one touchdown, four catches, 34 yards
- Allen Robinson – 10 catches, 103 yards, one touchdown
- Darnell Mooney – three catches, 45 yards
- Cole Kmet – five catches, 67 yards, one touchdown
- Khalil Mack – six tackles, 1.5 sacks, three tackle for loss
- Roquan Smith – 13 tackles, two tackles for loss
- Jaylon Johnson – four tackles, two interceptions
- Akiem Hicks – three tackles, two sacks, three tackles for loss
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- Tom Brady – 27/39 completions, 305 yards, three touchdowns, two interceptions
- Ronald Jones II – 14 rushes, 67 yards, three catches, 59 yards
- Mike Evans – 13 catches, 120 yards, two touchdowns
- Rob Gronkowski – six catches, 82 yards
- Scotty Miller – four catches, 58 yards, one touchdown
- Shaquille Barrett – two tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss
- Devin White – ten tackles, one sack, and two tackles for loss
- Mike Edwards – seven tackles, one interception
- Vita Vea – six tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss
What can we actually expect from the Chicago Bears?
It was not a bad loss by any means for the Bears. The offense was not crazy explosive, but it did as much as it could. Nick Foles was okay, throwing for two touchdowns and a pick, while Brady threw three touchdowns and two picks. The ground game was good, and David Montgomery finding the endzone is a good sign. Also, Cole Kmet saw a lot of action, even scoring a touchdown.
Still, the Bucs were able to get pressure as well as a lot of tackles for loss. The Bears defense did well against the run but allowed over 300 yards and two scores through the air. I do have to point out the two interceptions for Jaylon Johnson, who has shown that he has a very bright future.
Hopefully, in real life, the Bears offense can match the play of the defense and hold its end of the bargain. Football works best when both sides of the ball are performing, and it is time for this offense to show it can move the ball. Let’s hope madden is wrong and the Bears come away with this one.
