Chicago Bears: Madden 21 simulation for Week 10 versus Vikings
What does Madden 21 predict for Week 10 matchup between the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings?
Heading into Week 10 on a three-game losing streak, the Chicago Bears are looking to get back in the win column and stay in the playoff picture. They are set to face a Minnesota Vikings team that has found their stride and have ridden Dalvin Cook to two straight divisional wins. The Bears have not looked good on offense the last three weeks, and that is going to have to change for them to stay competitive.
We simulated this week on Madden 21 to see a possible outcome. David Montgomery was just ruled out, so Cordarrelle Patterson and Ryan Nall played the main snaps at running back. The simulation resulted in a 24-13 win for the Chicago Bears. This would be a welcomed victory, in reality, one the Bears almost need to get their momentum going in the right direction. Here are some key stats from the simulation:
- Nick Foles – 28/41 completions, 273 yards, two touchdowns, one interception
- Cordarrelle Patterson – 12 carries, 41 yards, five receptions, 32 yards
- Ryan Nall – 10 carries, 53 yards, one touchdown, two receptions, 15 yards
- Allen Robinson – eight receptions, 101 yards, one touchdown
- Darnell Mooney – five receptions, 64 yards
- Jimmy Graham – four receptions, 53 yards, one touchdown
- Roquan Smith – 14 tackles, three tackles for loss
- Danny Trevathan – ten tackles, one tackle for loss
- Khalil Mack – five tackles, two sacks, one sack-fumble, one fumble recovery
- Robert Quinn – six tackles, one sack, one forced fumble
- Eddie Jackson – nine tackles, one tackle for loss
- Jaylon Johnson – six tackles, two interceptions
- Kirk Cousins – 21/36 completions, 235 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions
- Dalvin Cook – 19 carries, 82 yards, four receptions, 33 yards
- Adam Thielen – six receptions, 78 yards, one touchdown
- Justin Jefferson – seven catches, 67 yards
- Harrison Smith – twelve tackles, one tackle for loss
- Eric Wilson – six tackles, one interception
- Eric Kendricks – nine tackles, two tackles for loss
- Jayln Holmes – four tackles, two sacks
Once again, the story of the game is the defense for the Bears. They forced four turnovers and were able to sack the quarterback six times. Khalil Mack and Robert Quinn had great games, as well as guys like Roquan Smith and Jaylon Johnson, who had two interceptions. It was a team effort all around the defensive side of the ball, one that will be needed against a high powered Vikings offense come Monday night.
The offense for the Bears was okay, and they ran the ball somewhat well considering they were without David Montgomery. Foles was decent enough for the Bears to get a win, but they will need to be better in the actual game. It will be interesting to see if switching play-callers is going to help this offense get going.
The Madden 21 simulation has been very generous to the Bears this season, so hopefully, they are right this week and the Bears come away with a win on Monday Night Football versus the Vikings.
