Last week’s Madden 19 score: Buffalo 13, Tennessee 12

Last week’s real-life score: Buffalo 10, Tennessee 7

Overall Madden 19 prediction record: 4 for 5

EA Sports’ Madden 19 is officially back on track. The video game successfully predicted that the Buffalo Bills would defeat the Tennessee Titans in a low scoring, grind it out type of game. Despite their offensive inadequacies, the win puts the Bills at 2-3, a mere single game back of first place in the AFC East.

This weekend the Bills travel to Houston to take on another AFC South opponent, the Houston Texans. If you recall, the last time the Bills played in Houston, things did not go all that well.

Let’s see what the Madden 19 crystal ball predicts will happen!

HOUSTON, TX (Oct 14) – The sun is glistening on a fine mid-October afternoon in Houston, Texas. The Buffalo Bills decide to go with their customary white-on-blue away attire for this crucial inter-conference tilt. With trade rumors swirling, could this be the last time we see star running back LeSean McCoy in a Buffalo Bills uniform?

Much like last week, the Bills offense manages to march the ball down the field on their first possession. Quarterback Josh Allen links up with much maligned wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin on two pivotal third downs to move the chains. The drive is capped off with Allen displaying seasoned footwork to evade an all-out blitz and finds tight end Charles Clay wide open in the flat, and proceeds to walk into the end zone for a 17-yard score.

End of first quarter score: Buffalo 7, Houston 0

Rookie linebacker Tremaine Edmunds is the star of the show in the second quarter. His uncanny range allows him to chase down running back Lamar Miller behind the line of scrimmage on multiple occasions. The Virginia Tech product also manages to get two pressures on sophomore sensation Deshaun Watson to keep, the Texans offense at bay.

End of second quarter score: Buffalo 7, Houston 0

Both defenses are playing at an elite level. All-world defensive lineman JJ Watt absolutely abuses Buffalo’s interior line to the tune of two sacks and multiple pressures. He, along with his defensive line brethren are able to stymie McCoy and the Bills’ running game.

End of third quarter score: Buffalo 7, Houston 0

The Bills are able to manufacture a 50-yard drive by utilizing pick plays, screens and draws to help throw off the menacing Texans defense. The end result is a 39-yard field goal from last week’s hero, Steven Hauschka.

Unfortunately, the Bills decide to take their foot off of the gas pedal and play a soft zone coverage on defense. This allows Watson and the Texans to efficiently traverse down the field and register a short field goal and an 11-yard touchdown catch by tight end Ryan Griffin to send the game into overtime.

End of fourth quarter score: Buffalo 10, Houston 10

After three-and-outs from both sides, the Bills secure tremendous field position after a spectacular 40-yard punt return from rookie Ray-Ray McCloud. After register an additional first down via the running game, the Bills are in prime position to win a second consecutive game via field goal.

As usual, “Hausch Money” fails to disappoint. The 33-year old proceeds to drill a 41-yard field goal to send the Bills back to a .500 record.

Final score: Buffalo 13, Houston 10
