Giants kickoff and force a 3 and out.  They score a TD.  Raiders answers mixing runs and passes, despite some called plays.  Giants punt on second drive and Raiders defense tightened up.  Four picks later the Raiders get the W.

East Region:

(4) ARNCOEM (Buffalo Bills) 17

(13)Drake (NY Giants) 14

 

http://tecmoworld.com/twpc/?page_id=180&game=74963

 

Drake won the coin toss & took NYG - I responded w/ Buffalo.

 

Opening drive Buffalo put together strong 90 yard drive that Andre Reed got JJ at the 1 yard line - as he came down was stripped of ball for fumble - bounced into endzone where NYG 3 DBs scooped it up = touchback.

 

NYG went the distance to take 7-0 lead now about 3 min left in half.

Buffalo put another strong drive together to tie it up going into halftime (7-7).

 

Buff stopped NYG on 4th & 1 then scored to go up 14-7.

G-Men tied it up (14-14) w/ 3:15 left on clock.

 

Buffalo started at the their own 15 after KR & used 3min  clock up going 80 yards when faced w/ 4th down at the NYG 20 kicked a FG w/ LT literally in holder/kicker's face - somehow it wasn't blocked & Buffalo took 3 point lead.

KR w/ 5 seconds left was brought out about 10 yards before gang tackled by Buffalo drones.

 

GG Drake, very close game!

GG man...the 4th down hold had Baker running free at bottom...Simms just needed to get it out, but either Talley or Biscuit batted it down while rushing Phil (who was in bad unfortunately.) The Reed jumping stabs were just not being stopped. Must've been 5 or 6 of those. LT was fondling your holder instead of blocking the kick on the last play. Silly LT! Wrong balls!

Regulator (Giants) 42 N00BTecmo89 (Raiders) 0

 

Bryan wins the toss and calls giants/raiders. Against my fun factor I choose the G-men. The raiders had trouble stopping the giants offense. The raiders were able to run effectively but could not punch it in. The rust is slowly coming off.

 

GG Bryan and gl! Hope you stick around in the tecmo community

Just an FYi for your next round, this isnt matchup calling.  The winner of the toss is P1 and chooses any team from the tier.  The loser of the toss then chooses one team from remaining teams in that tier.

Prime (Buffalo) 20                   GoNickMontana (Giants) 14

 

 

Nick wins the coin toss and chooses to kickoff, Prime scores first. GoNick leads 14-7 @ the half after he scores once and makes a good stop against the Bills. GoNick gets the ball after the half but Prime makes a good stop on defense and ties the game up 14-14...After a back and forth battle the game goes into overtime and Prime pulls it off 20-14. Not a pretty game but it was a challenge to say the least.

Great battle. Prime, that playbook was ugly (especially against LT), but you pulled it off.

QB Bills and his 81pc was the difference here. GoNick was in position for a key INT a few times, but no dice. He still intercepted Bills twice but at times that didn't matter.

EAST BRACKET (#8 Bradbears [NYG] vs. #9 Oklahoma[BUF])

GIANTS1 28

BILLS1 14

 

Ingram caught 3 TD passes from Simms and as Bo mentioned above, Bills were on the doorstep, took the smart move to kick a short FG, but LT being 4th man down is a nightmare!  Thermal ran basically all over the Giants defense, but that's pretty much what he does.  QB Bills was off on a few passes to wide open receivers, which could have easily turned this game around for those who circle the wagons.  GG Oklahoma & that was a good rumble.  Hope we get to play again in the future!

REGS BRACKET (Hoff #8 vs Jesus #9)

 

GIANTS1 40

RAIDERS1 14

 

Gmens offense was unstoppable.. Raiders couldnt buy a break.. 

 

gmen get the rock first and start off with a nice drive.. simms to ingram for a nice chunk and 2 solid anderson runs to put up the first score.. 

raiders get the ball and l.t sniffs out any offense they can muster.. raiders go for it on 4th and 5.. its a sack on a picked play..

 

1 play later simms to ingram again 14-0.. gmens special teams is insane.. starting the raiders inside the 10 again.. 

next play and its a int inside the 30.. gmen are on fiyah.. enter bob golic on a picked play fumble to da house doh.. 14-7..


anderson gets a solid run to start off the drive.. then 2 picked plays in a row from the raiders.. but simms finds stephen the touchdown maker baker streaking up the middle for a td.. 21-7..

 

again raiders are stuck inside the 10 on kickoff.. however raiders would find life with a nice chunk about 50 from schroeder to 
tim brown i think.. bo would do work to the 2.. l.t would do work again.. schroeder couldnt handle the pressure and throws another pick this time in the redzone.. 

 

simms looks to put one more score up before the half and hits baker again for a 90 yard jj.. 28-7..

 

again raiders start inside the 10.. 1st play reasons gets a jj pick.. yowza.. giants slice and dice the raiders d with the pass as if they weren't there.. anderson on another nice run and the gmen score again.. 35-7..

 

raiders again inside the 10 could do nothing.. on the 2nd play they get sacked in the endzone.. 37-7..

 

the rest is history.. giants tack on a fg after draining the clock some.. the raiders also get another td from buerline to graddy getting to double digits..

 

nothing could go right for the raiders.. gg Hoff..

BILLS1 Neerrm 21
GIANTS1 adversity 7


http://tecmoworld.com/twpc/?page_id=180&game=74998
 

Bills start with the ball, and QB Bills decides to overthrow on a crucial 4th down. Not looking good out of the gate, until Talley pulls in an INT in the Giants endzone.

Thurman puts the team on his back and clutches out a couple of big runs and the Bills go up 7-0.

Giants driving in the 2nd quarter only to have Simms put the ball in the hands of Talley again. Bills get down the field to make it 14-0 at the half.

Anderson gets in some legwork in the 3rd, and the G-men pull it to 14-7. QB Bills decides to make up for his overthrow and leads a drive to make it 21-7. Simms, despite being in good, throws yet another pick, this time to the unknown Smith on the Bills D.

QB Bills can put the game away, but gets cute and FUMBLES the ball, giving the Giants a slim chance in the 4th, but it wasn't meant to be. 21-7 is the final.
