Pittsburgh / Cleveland Spectate Mode Play by Play

Parker 11carries 16 yards
Lewis 11 carries 8 yards

It is uncanny how the CPU/CPU game plays out almost exactly like the games I play. Most passes are

A) Open
B) Underneath in the middle of the field

And the AI is HORRIBLE and seeing a hole and running through it. On more than o ne occassion, Parker had a huge hole in front of him but was zig zag running for no reason at all, and would get crushed.

You want to know what playing the game is like? This is a very common example.

Second half to follow..
