The Line: Tennessee Titans -2 -- O/U: 55
The Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans meet in a Madden 20 NFL Sim Classic matchup on Monday afternoon.
The Indianapolis Colts come into this game with a 3-8 sim record after a 28-26 loss to Washington in their last game. T.Y. Hilton leads the Colts on offense with an 88 overall rating, with 93 speed as well as 95 agility and 91 acceleration. The Colts also have some solid muscle up front with four offensive linemen with at least an 80 overall rating, led by Quenton Nelson who has a team-high 94 overall rating with a 99 awareness rating as well as 97 strength and 92 run blocking. On the defense, Justin Houston leads the Colts at 86 overall, including a 93 mark in play recognition while Darius Leonard sits at one of the outside linebacker spots with an 85 overall rating including an 88 rating in tackling.
The Tennessee Titans come into this matchup with a 3-6 sim record after a 26-24 loss to Cleveland last time out. Derrick Henry leads the Titans with a 91 overall rating with 91 speed, 87 strength, 91 carrying and 98 stiff arm while Delanie Walker comes up at 86 overall as the Titans’ top pass catcher and tight end with 86 catching. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis make up an the top tandem at wide receiver, rated just 80 and 79 overall respectively, while Ryan Tannehill comes in at 80 overall at starting QB for the Titans. On defense, Kevin Byard shares the team-high on the defensive end at 91 overall with 93 zone coverage and 90 speed while Logan Ryan is at 86 overall at cornerback with 87 speed, 91 acceleration and 90 agility with 92 play recognition. Jurrell Casey also checks in at 85 overall at right defensive end with 92 play recognition, 89 tackling and 89 impact blocking as well as 92 strength.
Neither of these teams were anything special since we started covering these sim games, and these were two of the few division opponents to not face off up to this point. With that said, I just think side-by-side, the Titans are the better team and have the better skill players like Henry and Tannehill as well as Kevin Byard, Logan Ryan and Jurrell Casey on defense. I’m just not a fan of Jacoby Brissett at QB for the Colts, so I’ll side with the Titans and lay the points here.
