The Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints meet Friday night in a Madden20 simulation game.

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 New Orleans Saints have five players ranked 91 or better overall in quarterback Drew Brees, wide receiver Michael Thomas, defensive end Cameron Jordan and offensive linemen Ryan Ramczyk and Terron Armstead. As if a solid offensive line and game changers at quarterback and wide receiver wasn’t enough, the Saints also have an 89 overall at running back in Alvin Kamara who also has a 94 acceleration rating. The Saints are able to flip a game quickly and with Brees having a 98 awareness rating, he’s not going to be fooled by the defense often. The Saints also have one of the faster secondary’s in the game with Justin Hardee, Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple all having speed and acceleration above 90 ratings, so you’re confident they won’t get beat deep often. The New Orleans Saints are easily one of the best teams to play with in Madden 20.

The New Orleans Saints should have the edge at home and few teams are as balanced as them in this video game. With that said, the Seattle Seahawks have difference makers on both sides of the field and one of the best quarterbacks in this game. The Seahawks can make up a deficit quickly and have game changers on the defensive side who can force key turnovers. This should be a tight game throughout and getting the hook on top of the free field goal seems to be a good spot to be in this contest.
