The Line: Buffalo Bills -3 -- Over/Under: 42
The Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills meet Wednesday 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 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.
The Washington Redskins are a team I fade often in these simulations, as they just don't have a lot going for them other than a decent defense. The Buffalo Bills have their issues as well, but they're a far more trustworthy team with some underrated playmakers on the offensive side of the ball and a quarterback who can move the pocket.
It's rare I side with the Redskins in these games. Give me the Bills and the reasonable chalk.
