What Madden 21 predicts for the Chicago Bears Week 6 matchup vs Panthers
After another nail bitter, the Chicago Bears find themselves at 4-1 going into their Week 6 game versus the Carolina Panthers, who sit 3-2. Madden 21 had predicted the Bears to lose to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but fortunately this time the simulation was wrong. In the Madden season, their record is 4-1, which matches their real-life record. So what did Madden 21 predict for the Bears vs. Panthers game this week?
The Bears came away with a win over the Panthers in the simulation, with a final score of 38-17. This was the best game in the simulation this year, as both sides of the ball were on fire. The offense scored a lot of points, which is something the Bears hope to actually do this week, as the Panthers defense can be suspect at times.
Here are some key stats for the game:
- Nick Foles – 28/35 completions, 342 yards, three touchdowns
- David Montgomery – 22 carries, 121 yards, two touchdowns, four catches, 45 yards
- Allen Robinson II – 11 catches, 112 yards, one touchdown
- Jimmy Graham – six catches, 54 yards, one touchdown
- Cole Kmet – two catches, 31 yards, one touchdown
- Eddie Jackson – 12 tackles, one interception, two tackles for loss, one forced fumble
- Roquan Smith – 10 tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss
- Khalil Mack – six tackles, 2.5 sacks, three tackles for loss, one forced fumble
- Akiem Hicks – three tackles, 1.5 sacks, one tackle for loss, one fumble recovery
- Jaylon Johnson – five tackles, one interception, three passes defended
- Teddy Bridgewater – 26/40 completions, 302 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, five rushes, 23 yards
- Mike Davis – 15 carries, 61 yards, three catches, 43 yards
- Robby Anderson – four catches, 130 yards, one touchdown
- D.J. Moore – seven catches, 63 yards, one touchdown
- Shaq Thompson – 13 tackles, one sack
- Jeremy Chinn – nine tackles, two passes defended
- Donte Jackson – seven tackles
- Brian Burns – three tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss
The Chicago Bears had one hell of a game in this simulation
What a game it was for the Bears, one in which the whole team came together and played at the top of their game. Foles had his best game as a Bears, with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Montgomery broke out as well, going for 5.5 yards per carry against the lackluster Panthers run defense. That is a breath of fresh air for a team that has struggled to run the ball.
The Bears also dominated time of possession, as they were on offense for a little over 43 minutes this game. This is great to see because it is a change from the normal Bears offense which struggles to stay on the field at times.
The defense played super well today, coming away with two picks, as well as two fumble recoveries. Khalil Mack was back at it, recording 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble. All in all, it was a great effort by the Bears and hopefully, we see a game like this in real life on Sunday.
The Panthers have played very well considering all the changes they went through this offseason. Let’s hope the Bears play hard and do not come out thinking they have a free win. The Panthers are a tough team, and the Bears will need a very balanced attack on both sides of the ball to fulfill Madden 21’s prophecy.
