Tecmo Bowl Futures - Buccaneers Vs. Falcons

New, comments

You can go anywhere on the web and find what the experts think the outcome of any game will be. I have my own expert. She was born in 1991 and has had my heart ever since. Her name, Tecmo Super Bowl.

Tonight we get to witness a showdown in the NFC South. The Falcons already have a strong win in the division and they would like to keep that momentum going at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All the pundits claim that the Falcons play better at home in the dome, but as we all know, division games are always wildcard games. I expect to see a lot of offense tonight from both sides. Let's turn to our old faithful prognosticating software, Super Tecmo Bowl.

The Falcons start with the ball and to no surprise they attack through the air. Matt Ryan finds Levine Toilolo for a huge gain. Then he spots Roddy White wide open for the first score of the game.

The 4th quarter opens with tough defense from the Falcons as the Bucs struggle to move the football. Persistence pays off as Vincent Jackson makes a great catch for the touchdown.

The onside kick is not recovered so it looks like the Falcons can easily run out the clock for the one point win. However, Ryan decides to throw the football and add insult to injury. Roddy White catches the pass for yet another touchdown.

The game ends with the final score 28 - 20.
