Starting with the Giants vs. Saints in Week 2 and continuing through the 2016 NFL season, GMen HQ will use Madden 17 to simulate Big Blue’s weekly match-up ahead of the game. We’ll simulate each game 10 times and give you the results, assessing the quarterback comparison and the Giants’ defense.
We lead off this week with the New Orleans Saints, a perennial thorn in the Giants’ side. The teams don’t meet often (four times in 7 seasons), but when they do, Drew Brees has a field day. Brees has averaged 400 yards and 4 TDs on a 70 percent completion percentage in those four contests.
The Giants’ have upgraded their defense from a year ago, but they know what they’re facing. In a post on Giants.com, the team’s official website, one of those upgrades, Janoris “Jackrabbit” Jenkins talked about the challenge Brees presents this weekend.
“Preparing for a rookie is easy because they have a limited playbook. With Drew Brees, he has an open playbook. To changing all the routes and switching plays, and seeing matchups he doesn’t like, and attacking.”
– Janoris Jenkins
Will Brees once again shred the Giants secondary? We turn to the simulator, and the results may not be what you thought.
Final Results: NYG wins 7/10
Eli Manning, yds/TD-INT/completion %- 252.9/1.6-.6/74.2%
Drew Brees, yds/TD-INT/completion %- 230.0/1.2-.9/59.4%
