Each week during the season I will run a full simulation of the Giants game. All Madden, 15 minute quarters, injuries, and depth charts up to date to the best of my ability. So with that said, here’s the Madden 25 Week 13 Recap:
Giants Keep Playoff Hopes Alive, Beat Washington 42-29.
A very beaten up Giants squad went into Washington Sunday night and came out with the victory.
Terrell Thomas earned player of the game honors with 2 interceptions, one that was easily the play of the game.
With :52 seconds left in the first half, and the Giants leading 21-16, T2 picked off a deep pass to Pierre Garcon, out jumping him for the ball. The ensuing Giants drive ended in a TD.
Antrel Rolle picked off RGIII with less than :20 to go in the 4th to seal the deal.
Eli Manning: 20-27 for 293, 3 TD, and 1 INT
Robert Griffin III: 21-34 for 226, 1 TD, and 4 INTs. 12 rushes for 105 yards.
Andre Brown: 24 carries for 170 yards and 1 TD
Peyton Hillis: 4 carries for 19 yards and 1 TD
John Conner: 1 carry for 2 yards and a TD
Alfred Morris: 14 carries for 108 yards and 1 TD
Victor Cruz: 5 receptions for 116 and 1 TD
Brandon Myers: 4 receptions for 51 yards
Hakeem Nicks: 4 receptions for 41 yards and a TD
Santana Moss: 5 receptions for 82 yards
Pierre Garcon: 2 receptions for 15 yards and 1 TD
Jordan Reed: 2 receptions for 8 yards.
Jon Beason led the game with 12 total tackles.
Justin Tuck had 2 sacks, Damontre Moore had 1.
Terrell Thomas had 2 interceptions, Rivers and Rolle each had 1
Orakpo, Doughty, Meriweather, and Kerrigan each had a sack.
Orakpo had the interception.
Josh Brown attempted zero field goals.
Kai Forbath was 5 for 5.
JPP, Jacobs, Webster, McBride, Cordle are all injured and not playing. I started Kiwi for JPP with Damontre being the backup for both end positions. I put T2 on the outside opposite Prince with Hosley in the slot, Charles James rounded out the cornerbacks. Boothe was put at center and Brewer was moved over to left guard.
The Giants 4 game winning streak came to a halt last week with a loss to the Cowboys. The loss brought Madden’s record to 9-2 vs the Giants season. I still have hope for a victory tonight despite the injuries, in large part because of Madden 25 said so. Let’s face it, the game is 9-2 this year.
