Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts
Madden20 Sim: Friday, April 24, 2020 at 4:00 pm
The Line: Indianapolis Colts +2 -- Over/Under: 46.5
The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts meet Friday afternoon 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 Indianapolis Colts weren’t given many favors in this game rating wise, but they have a respectable offensive line with Quenton Nelson and his 94 rating as well as Anthony Castonzo and his 85 overall rating. There’s also some decent options on the outside in TY Hilton and Eric Ebron, both who are ranked in the high 80s overall. After that, things start to fall off a bit with the Colts and it’s hard to find players who can takeover a game. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett is ranked 72 overall and has an 84 acceleration rating, and his awareness rating is just 74 so he comes with boneheaded plays in these simulation games. The Colts are one of those teams that have to play at a high level for 60 minutes and the second they make mistake things can unravel rather quickly. Most people aren’t running to the sticks to play with the Colts in Madden20.
The Tennessee Titans are a tough tam to bet against in these simulations given that they have an identity and a formula to where even the computer can have success. However, the Indianapolis Colts have been better than advertised in some of these games and are starting to become worth a look in the underdog role. I'll take a shot with the Colts and the free points in a game that should come down to the final quarter. CLICK HERE TO
