I recently picked up Madden 15 for the Xbox One and the first thing I did was simulate an entire Kansas City Chiefs season to find out how our team will fare this season. I couldn’t wait on the season to play out to find out how well they would do so I spoiled it for myself. If you don’t want their season spoiled stop reading now, but if you are like me and can’t wait to find out then you came to the right place.
Before we start I would like to note that I did make the Chiefs current roster and I in no way rigged the system. I started a franchise, cut the players that needed cut, and hit the button to simulate the entire season.
Kansas City Chiefs Season Stats
Alex Smith – 3,007 Yards, 17 Touchdowns, and 6 Interceptions (Smith missed 1 game with an injury)
Jamaal Charles – 1,076 Yards, 4 Touchdowns, and 5.4 YPC
Knile Davis – 737 Yards and 6 Touchdowns.
It appears like Davis will get many of the red zone and goal line carries which explains him having more touchdowns than Charles. It should be noted that (I don’t want to say it. If you are feint of heart skip this part) Charles missed two games with an injury.
Dwayne Bowe – 1,164 Yards and 10 Touchdowns. It looks like Bowe will come up big for Kansas City this year when they desperately need him to. I guess he really is in the best shape of his life.
Donnie Avery – 611 Yards and 3 Touchdowns
Derrick Johnson – 120 Tackles, 1 sack, 2 Interceptions, and 1 Forced Fumble.
Justin Houston – 103 Tackles and 18 sacks. In a contract year, Houston proves why he deserves a pay day and proves to be the Chiefs best defensive player.
Eric Berry – 4 Interceptions.
Sean Smith – 3 Interceptions.
Cairo Santos – 30-38 Field Goals 78%.
De’Anthony Thomas was unable to take a single kick off or punt back for a touchdown to which I say blasphemy.
AFC West results
Kansas City Chiefs 11-5
San Diego Chargers 6-10
Denver Broncos 5-10-1 (This would make me feel better than the Chiefs winning the division I think)
Raiders 4-12 (The least surprising part of this article)
AFC Playoff Teams
Buffalo Bills 12-4 (There is always a surprise team and this year apparently it is going to be Buffalo)
Kansas City Chiefs 11-5
Baltimore Ravens 11-5
Houston Texans 10-6 (They have the talent, the question is do they have the quarterback?)
New England Patriots 9-7
The Chiefs had a first round bye in the playoffs, so their first game came in the Divisional Round where they were matched up with the Houston Texans. Kansas City jumped out to an early 21-0 lead in the first quarter and all the hard work and stress on finishing finally paid off as they never slowed down and went on to win 58-22.
The Chiefs then met the New England Patriots in the Conference Championships with a ticket to the Super Bowl on the line. If you’re into happy endings, rainbows, sunshine, and Super Bowl’s then this is where you stop reading and pretend the Chiefs took the momentum all the way to a Super Bowl victory.
Riding high off of their domination of the Texans, the Chiefs laid an absolute egg. I am sorry to tell you this, but your Kansas City Chiefs will lose one game short of a Super Bowl birth to the Patriots with a final score of 26-3.
So there you have it, the Kansas City Chiefs will get that playoff victory that the fan base has been waiting so long for, but in the end we will all be left disappointed at what could have been.
I will have weekly “Madden Simulates Kansas City Chiefs Vs (weekly match up)” articles up to tell you how all the games will finish. Keep an eye out for the Chiefs vs Titans simulation later this week.
