In Madden's Overdrive, why do much stronger teams lose to much weaker teams

★★★★ Novice

Every time I play Madden's Overdrive, I'll lose six to eight games in a row to much weaker teams.  My power rank is 1490 and today I lose six games to teams with 3 to 5 times less power.  One to a team with a 30 ranking!  This is ridiculous.  And I almost always lose to teams that are twice as powerful and only once have beaten a time with five times as much power. Does anyone else have this problem?   It's annoying to this player but also a bad business practice because there is no incentive to increase power if power rankings have no real influence on the outcome of so many games.

It's EAs algorithm called dynamic difficulty adjustment. Or what we call being nerfed.

I run my own league named 5th Down. We're a borderline top100 team, in one week out the next... Lol.
My team name is PoppaGator.
