Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills
Madden20 Sim: Monday, April 27, 2020 at 6:00 pm
The Line: Buffalo Bills +6 -- Over/Under: 49.5
The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills meet Monday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Kansas City Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champs and have six players ranked in the 90s overall. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is damn near a cheat code with his 99 rating overall, 97 awareness rating and 87 acceleration rating. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill has a 96 rating overall and his acceleration and speed ratings are 99, and he’s an easy touchdown once he gets off press coverage. Defensive end Frank Clark is a speedy pass rusher who gets to the pass rusher regularly and tight end Travis Kelce is a beast across the middle with his 96 rating. Like most teams that win the title, Madden shows love to a lot of the players and it’s been no different for the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Buffalo Bills rely on their defense in this video game, as it’s the side of the ball where their top-four ranked players are. Micah Hyde, Tre-Davious White, Jordan Poyer and Lorenzo Alexander are the Bills top ranked players with overall ratings of at least 83 overall. The Bills offense is led by a pair of receivers who are ranked 83 overall in Cole Beasley and John Brown and they also have high awareness ratings as well which is key in these simulations. For quarterback, Josh Allen is rated 77 overall and has a speed rating of 84 and a 87 acceleration rating. Allen isn’t the most aware quarterback in the world and can struggle with accuracy, but he moves the pocket well and can make plays with his feet. The Bills aren’t the sexiest team in the world, but they get after it defensively and can do just enough offensively to cash a winning bet.
It's always risky to bet against the Kansas City Chiefs even in video gam form, as they have the horses to blow any team out in a single quarter. These teams played each other yesterday at arrowhead stadium and the Chiefs won by 14 points, never really in danger of letting the game slip away. With that said, the Bills put up 20 points of offense on the road and I'd have to think they can have an even more complete showing at home. Also, no two video games are alike, so expect some odd stuff to take place here.
Give me the Buffalo Bills and the free touchdown.
