AFC vs. NFC
Madden20 Sim: Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 5:00 pm
The Line: NFC +3 -- Over/Under: 44.5
The AFC and NFC meet Wednesday in a Madden20 Pro Bowl Simulation Game.
This game will be played on All Madden with 10 minute quarters and no accelerated clock. Considering it’s computer vs. computer and it’s not about making sure guys don’t get hurt, I’d safely assume only the starters will see playing time.
Team AFC will be led by video game cheat code Lamar Jackson who is a 96 speed and 96 acceleration, and he’s absolutely unfair to play with in this game. The other top rated players on Team AFC is cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who is 98 overall and 94 acceleration. Linebacker Von Miller brings in a 96 overall rating and 90 agility rating, while left guard Quenton Nelson is a 94 rating overall and 97 strength rating. Unfortunately for Team AFC, there’s a decent amount of higher rated players in the conference who weren’t named starters to last years Pro Bowl, so I question if they’ll see the field in this game.
Team NFC has Drew Brees at quarterback who is a 94 rating overall and a 98 awareness rating, so he doesn’t make that many mistakes in this game. The NFC has the top rated receiver in Michael Thomas who is a 99 overall, and they have a top rated left tackle in Terron Armstead who is a 95 overall with a 95 awareness rating. Fletcher Cox will start on the defensive line with his 95 rating overall and 95 rating in strength, while safety Harrison Smith brings his 95 overall rating to the defensive backfield. Like team AFC, Aaron Donald and Luke Kuechly weren’t starters in the Pro Bowl, so that’s two highly rated players who may not see the field.
I'm going to assume that only the staters play in this game and that's probably why Team AFC is the favorites because Lamar Jackson is the quarterback. However, we still have two teams that are absolutely stacked with the highest rated players in the game and you can't go wrong with either side. In fact, Team NFC probably has the edge on the defensive side and having Brees as a starter with his awareness rating holds major value in a simulation game. I'm going to treat this game like I treat the actual Pro Bowl and grab the points. Two even teams and the computer controlling both sides, give me the points.
