Madden Matchup: Texans at Dolphins – by Eric SanInocencio, HoustonTexans.com

"The curse is over.After three straight weeks of Madden 16’s predictions turning out backwards on the actual field, the game finally got one right last week. Even the score they predicted was pretty close to what happened. Take a bow Madden.Despite, shall I say, uncertainty about last week’s article and prediction (you can read the comments here), the game accurately put the Texans in a W column, and in a big way. Madden’s 41-9 score wasn’t too far off from the actual 31-20 final, especially if you consider that Jacksonville scored a late touchdown to make the score appear closer. Well done."
