"Games aren't played on paper. Nothing is certain, which is why the games are physically played. That was not a deterrent, though, in letting Madden 10 (on the PS3) match up the AFC and NFC contenders to see who emerges for the right to play in the divisional championship series.
Now Madden does not have the EA Sports Dynamic DNA function of who's hot and who is not. While it did update rosters, it does not have a one-click feature to simulated the atmosphere of a playoff game. These were straight head-to-head competitions to see who would do what. Only time will tell if the most "accurate" football sim got it right."
