Denver Broncos vs. Atlanta Falcons
Madden 20 NFL Sim: Sunday April 26, 2020 at 10:00 am
The Line: Atlanta Falcons -6 -- O/U: 53.5
The Denver Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Sunday morning.
The Denver Broncos will look to build on a 41-13 beatdown win over Pittsburgh last time out. Phillip Lindsay leads Denver on offense with an 85 overall rating at running back with 93 carrying as well as 93 speed and 91 acceleration. Courtland Sutton is right behind as Denver’s top wideout with 89 speed, 92 acceleration and 92 catching as part of his 84 overall rating. On D, Von Miller leads Denver with a team-high 96 overall rating, including 93 tackling, 89 impact blocking, 90 finesse move and 93 power move. Chris Harris Jr. is at DB at 90 overall with a 91 man coverage rating and 90 speed. Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson make up a strong combination in the Denver secondary at 89 and 87 overall.
The Atlanta Falcons will look to build on back-to-back sim wins after a 23-19 win over the Saints in their last game. Julio Jones leads Atlanta with a 97 overall rating, with 92 speed and 94 agility to go along with 96 catching, 95 catching in traffic and 98 spectacular catch. Austin Hooper rated 89 overall at tight end with 97 catching while Matt Ryan comes in at 87 overall at QB and Devonta Freeman leads the Falcons’ ground attack with an 85 overall rating with 92 speed and 94 agility. On D, Grady Jarrett leads Atlanta rated 90 overall with 89 strength, 90 block shedding and 93 power move while Deion Jones is the Falcons’ top linebacker at 86 overall with 89 pursuit, 90 speed and 91 acceleration. Keanu Neal and Desmond Trufant lead the secondary at 85 and 84 overall respectively with Trufant logging 92 speed, 93 acceleration and 96 agility.
The Broncos have looked really good in their last couple of games, but like I’ve said in other sim articles, two simulated games isn’t really a sample size and momentum isn’t an attribute in these simulated games that are exhibitions as well. Atlanta just has the much more talented team, and while they haven’t blown anyone away lately, I think the Falcons are at least a touchdown better than the Broncos here, so I’ll lay the points with Atlanta in this spot.
