Madden Preview: Steelers vs Texans

So another week, another Madden Preview by yours truly. Last week, i was actually starting to smile as I thought that my madden game vs the Saints was coming to fruition. I mean who would have thunk the Texans were making strides against the Saints and actually shutting down Brees. Low and Behold it ended as I thought it would. Saints recorded the W and Houston came home to a 2-1 record. 

But this week is a new week, and we are at home vs. the Steelers who honestly IMO have looked much like a disorganized unit who beats teams they are supposed to, ( Barely i might mark against INDY) and lose to a Real Good team (minus their week against the BE-SFs.) So jump with me for a play by play of my game against that team from philly Pittsburgh.

HOU 6- PItt 28

Notes, how the hell did this get out of control? well I didnt get any time to get passes off most of the game. Pitts blitzes overpowered the Line. I dont think Madden takes into account how well houston's :line plays. I am not happy with this outcome, but I will not cheat and play till an outcome is favorable. Oh well guess we have a defensive struggle to watch this weekend. YAY! GO TEXANS!
