Season 4: Week 3 Open

Season 4: Week 3

Wow! A legitimate early advance in back to back weeks. I love it! And with the EA servers being down a night no less!

I can't stress how much better the game is when you have a mic to correspond with your opponent. It goes a long way to ease any negative thoughts about your opponent trying to cheese you.

So that Little Hurricane band I posted as last week's video. They have me hooked after youtube recommended them to me last week. Just a guy and a girl jamming out some Dirty Blues. I'd never seen "Dirty Blues" used to describe a genre. Anyone else have some lesser known music to recommend?

We've got a few great storylines in user games. Last year mission absolutely destroyed the Chargers, only to ignite a flame in Ken and see him knock off the Bears the following week. Can Ken finally exact some revenge? The two AALoA noobs square off this week.  And then the historic rivalry is always a good show.

   VS      
As two of the three user games consist of teams from last week's GotW, the Bears and Packers are this week's GotW by default. But let's be honest, shouldn't this always be GotW?  Plusch and his Packers have yet to topple my Bears in Madden 15. I don't think he's beat me since my short stint in Legit Madden League in Madden 10? But he has to be due. It won't be easy as the Packers will be missing Randall Cobb.  The Bears, while full strength, are still trying to solve the issue with Mario Jeter's Sophomore slump. He may just keep the Packers in it single-handedly.

Game of the Week lived up to the label. The Bears made the short trip up to Green Bay to face the Packers coming off a tough loss to the 49ers. After falling down 0-10, the Bears rallied to stake a commanding lead. Bad Jeter showed up to give the ball away twice on ill advised throws (one due to lag), to fall behind 24-28 late. Inside the final two minutes, Matt Forte plunged into the end zone, and Bears faithful held their collective breath as Aaron Rodgers moved down the field. Thanks to a timely sack on third down, the Packers took a time out to form a plan. They then bungled the clock force 4th and 20+ due to a delay of game being unable to take back to back time outs.

Chris "Pick-onte Sauce" was not his mild self grabbing a key interception at the end of the 2nd half in the end zone to take away points, and then another on the 4th and long to seal the game.

Rookie TE Marc Sensabaugh grabbed his first career TD. And the backfield of Forte, Lofton, and Jeter is a real three-headed monster to contend with.

Chargers fall 19-7 to the Chiefs in a defensive battle. This was the most competitive game between the two teams in years. Skylar Murray did better than Christian Ponder ever did in his starts against the Chiefs.

Raiders prevail vs the Bills, 16-10.  It was a rough game for both teams. Raiders feel the brunt of the game, with the loss of Derek Carr. Derek is done for the season with a pectoral tear, that will sideline him for 20 weeks.

Rookie Lindsay takes over quarterback duties for the Raiders

24 hour warning on advance. All User games are done. I'll give up to 48 hours from advance for CPU games to get played. That's Vikings, Eagles, Colts left to play.

Vikings up their start to 3-0 defeating the defending champion Steelers 17-7 in a defensive battle at Heinz Field.  On the heels of facing a tough STL Rams team, they traveled to Pittsburgh to grind out an ugly win.  The Steelers were held to 109 yds through the air and only 82 on the ground.  The Vikes could only muster up 153 passing and 63 rushing themselves. Teddy didn't look so hot, and yards were hard to come by but plays were made when they were needed to secure the win. and grind out the clock.

Up next week are the Falcons at home.
