Before diving into this week's simulation, let's take a quick look at how Madden NFL 15 Coins has fared so far this season at predicting the results of the Saints first five games.And while Las Vegas has had the Saints favored in each game this season - although Detroit is currently a 2½-point favorite this week - Madden has only gone against the Saints once so far. One week after forcing Minnesota to settle for three field goals, the virtual New Orleans Saints settled for four field goals of their own against Dallas as they came out with a 26-10 victory.
Graham's replacement in the Madden NFL 15 Ultimate Team Coins - tight end Benjamin Watson - hauled in both of Drew Brees' touchdown tosses, finishing as the Saints leading receiver with six catches for 86 yards. Marques Colston added five receptions for 35 yards and Brandin Cooks added five catches for 85 yards. The Saints took a 17-3 lead early, but the Lions chipped away to make it 17-14 heading into the fourth quarter. White's intereception return gave the Saints a 24-14 lead and after the Lions cut the lead to three, Ingram put the game away with a 2-yard touchdown run with just over two minutes to go. The Lions added a late score but could not convert the onside kick.
