The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks meet Sunday in a Madden20 Simulation Game.

The Minnesota Vikings are one of those teams that’s absolutely loaded on the offensive side of the ball with wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, as well as running back Darlin Cook all ranked 90 overall or better. The Vikings defense isn’t too shabby either with safety Harrision Smith being the teams highest rated player at 95 overall and Everyone Griffen and Danielle Hunter being two speed rushers ranked in the high 80s. Quarterback Kirk Cousins is also somebody you can win with, as he has a decent rating of 82 overall and an acceleration of 83. The Minnesota Vikings can’t seem to make this team work in real life, but they have a lot of fun weapons to use in the video game and should have a lot of success as well as flashy plays on both sides of the ball. 

The Seattle Seahawks are led by two of the higher ranked players in the game with linebacker Bobby Wagner coming in at 98 overall and quarterback Russell Wilson carrying a 97 rating overall. Wide receiver Tyler Lockett has a speed of 93 and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has seen his ranking drop since the games launch, but he still comes in at an 88 overall and has an 87 rating for speed that makes him tough to stop once he clears the edge. The Seattle Seahawks are one of the flashier teams in the game due to the overall speed at key positions, and they can change the momentum of the game in a hurry.

The Seattle Seahawks should be favored at home where they have the better quarterback and an aggressive defense. However, you can argue the Minnesota Vikings are the deeper and more talented team from top to bottom, and if there's any team with the offensive weapons to give these Seahawks issues, it's the Vikings. In the video game world, the Vikings have a lot to offer in a three-headed monster at the skill positions. This should be a back and forth battle between two talented clubs. I want the Vikings and the points.
