The Line: Seattle Seahawks -4.5 -- Over/Under: 45
The Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks meet Thursday night in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Los Angeles Rams may not have accomplished much last season, but they have eight players who are ranked at least 85 overall in Madden20. Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is one of the best players in the game with a 99 overall rating and a 99 strength rating. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey is a 94 overall and 93 acceleration rating, while left tackle Andrew Whitworth is 88 overall and has a 90 awareness rating. Running back Todd Gurley has a 86 overall rating and a 91 speed rating and quarterback Jared Goff is rated 77 overall with an 86 acceleration rating. The Los Angeles Rams has one of the better wide receiver trios in this game and have a defense filled with game changers. You can win a lot in this game playing with the Los Angeles Rams.
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 are a dangerous team with Wilson leading the way, as he's a 97 overall and has the speed and acceleration that gives defenses something else to think about. With that said, the Los Angeles Rams are one of the better defenses in this game with highly rated players across the board, and they still have an effective ground game with Gurley in the backfield. The Rams may have underachieved last year in real life, but they're still a force in video game form.
I want the Rams and the points in this intriguing NFC West virtual showdown.
