Miami Dolphins at Kansas City Chiefs

The Line: Kansas City Chiefs -14 -- Over/Under: 48
The Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs meet Sunday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Miami Dolphins don’t have a ton to offer in this game, but three of their top-four rated players are on the defensive side in cornerbacks Xavien Howard and Aqib Talib, as well as safety Reshad Jones. Wide receiver DeVante Parker is the Dolphins highest rated player at 84 overall with a 91 speed and acceleration ratings. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick checks out at 74 overall with an 80 awareness rating and 80 acceleration rating. The x-factor for the Dolphins is wide receiver Jakeem Grant, who has a 96 sped rating and 94 acceleration rating, one of the few difference makers on this team capable of turning out a big play. Overall, the Miami Dolphins aren’t scaring anybody and have just four players ranked 81 overall or higher. At least in Madden20, the Dolphins are a tough team to sell and can often find themselves over their head.
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.
I've said many times that the Kansas City Chiefs are a dangerous team to bet against due to how explosive they are on the offensive end and their ability to flip a game extremely quick. However, the Miami Dolphins have been a scrappy bunch during these simulations and have covered for us a lot as big underdogs. It's not always pretty, but the Dolphins compete. You're also asking a lot of a computer when laying these sort of numbers. The computer has to play near perfect football to cover these big numbers.
Give me the Miami Dolphins and the two free touchdowns.
