Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens
Madden20 Sim: Wednesday, April 15, 2020 at 8:00 pm
The Line: Baltimore Ravens -5.5 -- Over/Under: 44.5
The Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens meet Wednesday in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Tennessee Titans have four players ranked 86 overall or better in safety Kevin Byard, running back Derrick Henry, cornerback Logan Ryan and tight end Delanie Walker. Just like in real life, the Titans are a physical team in the trenches and rely on a power running game behind the highly rated offensive linemen Rodger Saffold and Taylor Lewan. If the opposing defense doesn’t have a strong front seven, the Titans are going to control the clock and run the ball to victory. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill comes in at 80 rating overall and is a solid 81 speed rating and 86 acceleration rating, so he can make plays with his legs and give the defense something else to think about. The Tennessee Titans may not be the sexiest team in Madden, but they have an identity and are extremely good at the style they bring to the field.
The Baltimore Ravens have five played ranked 91 overall or better, including safety Earl Thomas, left tackle Ronnie Stanley, quarterback Lamar Jackson, right guard Marshal Yanda and defensive tackle Michael Pierce. Not only do the Ravens have a stacked offensive line, but they have a quarterback who has a 96 speed rating and 96 acceleration rating, which makes him the modern Michael Vick and pretty much a cheat code in the video game world. Running back Mark Ingram is also tough to bring down and kicker Justin Tucker misses almost nothing with his 87 overall rating. The Baltimore Ravens may not have won the Super Bowl in real life, but they’re absolutely loaded in Madden and almost unfair to play with if you find yourself playing online.
The Baltimore Ravens are the scariest team in Madden due to their athletic defense and an offense with Jackson leading the way. Jackson is a nightmare in the open field and even a quarterback spy doesn't work due to his speed rating being able to outrun defenders. However, the Tennessee Titans are a physical bunch in the trenches and it's one of the few counters to this Ravens squad, as we saw last year in the playoffs. The Titans are going to slow the game down, play a bend but don't break defense and rely on Derrick Henry to bring them home.
I want the Titans and the points.
