Low scores in even competition games

Maybe it is just me, but everytime I play the ai and we are evenly matched it is a defensive slugfest. I have had some games where I have put up over 35 points against a super weak opponent but that is about it. The ai has consistently struggled to score over 17 against me. I am not saying my d is great, in fact I know it is not as I struggle to get good pressure on the quarterback.

Essentially my question is as follows: is anyone getting semi ofensive games in big games of their dynasty, like a miami/fsu, in my dynasty and exhibitions all close competition games are defensive as hell. Just wondering what you guys are encountering.

My sliders are something like this:

All american, 8 min qtrs

human/ai offense

human/ai defense

me and ai have big red zone problems which turns td's into field goals, also if this needs to go in slider post, please feel free to move mods

this is not a complaint, just looking for others feedback

Re: Low scores in even competition games

I was playing as West Virginia @ Texas earlier today, and it was just 6-7 after the first half. .

I never finished the game, but it had all the makings of a defensive minded football game.

Re: Low scores in even competition games

I'd be happy if I could get more defensive games. The majority of my games are 42-35, 38-35, stuff like that. Only 2-3 out of the 50+ games I've played have been with scores of less then 21 points. I think I've finally got sliders to the point where I can get those lower scores with defensive teams, but still allow for high scoring if the defense can't do anything.

Re: Low scores in even competition games

I had my first great shootout, with an even opponent. I won 42-14 (i know i had 42, not sure about them).

Most of my games against even opponents though are in the 20-30 point range.

I agree though, it is rare to see high scoring evenly matched games, 40 to 35 type games.

For me it's a 20% chance of getting a high scoring game.
