The Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers meet in a Madden 20 NFL Sim Classic matchup on Wednesday night.
The Cincinnati Bengals will still be looking for their first sim victory after starting their Sim Classic with a 37-19 loss to Baltimore in their last game. A.J. Green leads Cincinnati with a 90 overall rating at wide receiver, with 90 speed and 92 agility with 92 catching and 96 marks in catching in traffic and spectacular catch. Joe Mixon starts at running back for Cincinnati with an 87 overall rating with 91 speed and 93 acceleration while Tyler Boyd is 83 overall at wide receiver. Andy Dalton is now on the Dallas Cowboys, but in this game, he’s the starting at quarterback for the Bengals, but only has a 72 overall rating at the position. On the defensive end, Geno Atkins leads the Bengais’ front line at 88 overall with 90 strength, 89 impact blocking and 90 power moves. Carlos Dunlap is also at 82 overall on the defensive line while William Jackson leads the secondary at 81 overall.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to build on their winning start to the Sim Classic after a 37-34 win over Cleveland in their last game. JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the Steeler offense at wide receiver with an 86 overall rating, which includes a rating of 91 speed and 92 acceleration as well as 90 catching and 93 catching in traffic while James Conner is Pittsburgh’s top running back with an 81 overall rating with 86 speed, 89 acceleration and 89 carrying. Ben Roethlisberger is the starting QB with an 81 overall rating with 89 throwing power and 89 short passing accuracy. On defense, Cameron Heyward leads Pittsburgh rated at 90 overall with 93 strength, 91 tackling and 92 power move while Stephon Tuitt is on the other side of the front at 87 overall with 90 block shedding and 91 strength.
I’d like to give the Bengals here as it feels like Cincinnati is due, but the Bengals just continue to get beat up on and while Pittsburgh isn’t the most dominant team out there, they’ve won both sim matchups against Cincinnati by a combined score of 78-20. That’s enough for me. I’ll lay the points with Pittsburgh here.
