Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears
Madden20 Sim: Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 4:00 pm
The Line: Chicago Bears +3.5 -- Over/Under: 45
The Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears meet Saturday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Dallas Cowboys have four players ranked 91 or better overall in running back Ezekiel Elliott, wide receiver Amari Cooper and offensive linemen Zack Martin and Tyron Smith. That makes for a strong running game and a difference maker on the outside. Quarterback Dan Prescott is rated 81 overall, but he has a decent speed rating of 83 and acceleration rating of 86, so he can hurt defenses with his feet. Speaking of the defense, the Cowboys have a shutdown corner in Byron Jones who has an 88 rating overall and a top tier pass rusher in DeMarcus Lawrence who also has an 88 rating overall and a 88 acceleration rating. The Dallas Cowboys are loaded with difference makers on both sides of the ball and have to be one of the more balanced teams in this years version of Madden.
The Chicago Bears rely heavily on the defensive side of the ball, as six of their top-seven ranked players are defensive players. Linebacker Khalil Mack leads the Bears with 98 overall rating while Eddie Jackson and Kyle Fuller make for one of the better secondary’s in the game. Surprisingly, wide receiver Allen Robinson is the Bears second best rated player at a 89 overall. Overall, it’s hard to get behind the Chicago Bears who have a quarterback in Mitch Trubisky who has a rating of 73 overall, which is the same as their punter Pat O’Donnell. The Bears defense should keep them in games, but you really lack confidence if this team gets behind early and has to rely on throwing the ball to get back in it.
The Dallas Cowboys have the better and deeper top tier talent, but they're going up against one of the better defenses in the league with a front seven that rushes the passer and stops the run. The Chicago Bears don't exactly have difference makers on the offensive side, but they can grind games out and win ugly style games in these simulation contests. Points can be key a lot of times in these type of matchups. Give me the Bears and the free points.
