During the first three weeks we at Ramblin’ Fan had been doing a Madden 25 simutlation for each game, and we will continue to do so. Last week was a short week, so we didnt get to it, but we are back at it again this week.
The Rams are 1-3 and are desperate for a win after losing three straight games. This week they get the Jacksonville Jaguars who are right now considered the worst team in the NFL. These Madden 25 simulations get harder and harder to do each week, only because Madden doesnt seem to give the Rams a chance and that trend continued this week against the Jaguars as the Rams lost 52-20.
Dont ask me how the Jaguars would ever score 52 points or even how the Rams would ever lose by 32 points the the Jaguars, but in “Madden 25 Land” anything and everything is possible.
Maurice Jones-Drew scored the first touchdown of the day to put the Jaguars up 7-0. The Rams would then tie it up with a Zac Stacy touchdown run. The Jaguars would go up 14-7 at the end of the first quarter with a Blaine Gabbert touchdown pass.
In the second quarter is when things got ugly for the Rams as the Jaguars scored the next 14 points with two Gabbert touchdown passes to go up 28-7. Greg Zuerlein would kick a field goal to cut the deficit to 28-10 and then Jones-Drew would finish the half with a touchdown run to go up 35-10 at the half.
The Jaguars let off the pedal a little in the second half scoring two rushing touchdowns from Jones-Drew and then the Kendricks would catch the only other Rams touchdown in the 4th quarter to make it 52-20.
Maurice Jones Drew was the difference in the game as the Rams could not stop him and he rushed for 281 yards and four touchdowns. Gabbert was held to under 200 yards passing with 150.
Bradford on the other hand had 372 yards passing and the Rams running game continued to struggle as Stacy only had 37 yards on 18 carries.
If Madden got one thing right, it’s that if the Rams cant stop Jones-Drew, the Jaguars can come out with the win. However, other than that I dont see how anything else in the game is possible on Sunday. Hopefully the Rams can get the win in week five and dont duplicate the Madden simulation, because if the Rams lose 52-20 to the Jaguars, they may not have a fan base.
