The Line: New York Giants -2.5 -- Over/Under: 44

TV: twitch.tv/betonlinemadden

The Washington Redskins and New York Giants meet Friday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game. 

The Washington Redskins have one player ranked in the 90s, and that’s left tackle Trent Williams who brings in a 92 overall rating and a 90 awareness rating. Right guard Brandon Scherff has an 88 overall rating, giving the Redskins an above-average offensive line in Madden20. As for the skill positions, the Redskins turn to tight end Jordan Reed who has an 84 overall rating and wide receiver Terry Mclaurin who is 81 overall. Quarterback, the Redskins are led by Dwayne Haskins who is 70 overall with a 70 awareness rating and 76 speed rating. The Washington Redskins are one of those teams in this game you have to play really conservative with, as they don’t have the horses on either side of the ball to really flip a game. Rely on defense and ground game and hope Haskins doesn’t make the turnover that kills your bet.

The New York Giants are heavy offensive team with their top-five ranked players being on that side of the ball starting with running back Saquon Barkley who is a 89 overall with a 92 speed rating. Tight end Evan Engram is an 88 overall with an 88 awareness rating, while wide receiver Golden Tate is an 83 overall rating and 96 agility rating. The concern with the Giants is quarterback Daniel Jones brings in a 70 overall rating with a 72 awareness rating and 84 speed rating. Defensively, defensive end Leonard Williams is the highest rated player at 82 overall and defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson is 80 overall with an 88 strength rating. The New York Giants are light on game changing talent, but you can win with this team if you know how to control the offensive line and mix up a power running game.

The Washington Redskins are one of those teams I just don't want to back in these simulations unless they're getting a ton of points. The Redskins are skilled defensively and can hang around, but the second they get down a couple of scores, your bet is pretty much toast. The New York Giants have their flaws as well, but they're not all that bad offensively and Barkley is the type of player you want when a team is looking to put a game on ice.

I'll lay the small chalk with the Giants in this NFC East rivalry.
