The Line: Minnesota Vikings PK -- Over/Under: 44
The Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings meet Saturday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
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 Minnesota Vikings are one of those teams that’s absolutely loaded on the offensive side of the ball with wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, as well as running back Darlin Cook all ranked 90 overall or better. The Vikings defense isn’t too shabby either with safety Harrision Smith being the teams highest rated player at 95 overall while Everyone Griffen and Danielle Hunter being two speed rushers ranked in the high 80s. Quarterback Kirk Cousins is also somebody you can win with, as he has a decent rating of 82 overall and a 82 acceleration rating to do a good job of moving the pocket. The Minnesota Vikings can’t seem to make this team work in real life, but they have a lot of fun weapons to use in the video game and should have a lot of success as well as flashy plays on both sides of the ball.
This should be a hell of a matchup between two of the better and more balanced teams in the game. The Seattle Seahawks are a tough team to bet against because they have Wilson leading their offense, one of the best rated quarterbacks in this game and a guy with a very high awareness rating, which is key in spots like this. However, the Minnesota Vikings have more balance on both sides of the ball and have a more consistent offense with deep wide receivers and a speedy running back.
In a true pick em contest, give me the Minnesota Vikings at home.
