New York Jets at Miami Dolphins
Madden20 Sim: Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 8:00 pm
The Line: Miami Dolphins +3 -- Over/Under: 41
The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins meet Tuesday night in a Madden20 simulation game.
The New York Jets didn’t win a whole lot in the real life season, but they have some talent on the video game side, especially on defense where safety Jalen Adams and linebackers CJ Mosely and Avery Williamson are all ranked 85 or higher overall. Running back Le’Veon Bell carries an 88 overall rating with a 89 speed rating and 92 acceleration rating. Wide receiver Robby Anderson is the fastest player on the team with a 94 speed rating and 84 overall rating. Quarterback Sam Darnold has a 74 overall rating with a 77 awareness rating and a 83 acceleration rating. For a team that didn’t win a whole lot on the actual field, the New York Jets have some talent in the virtual world and they’re good enough to win with if played with online. Don’t sleep on these Jets.
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 New York Jets have the edge in terms of rankings, especially on the defensive side where there's a handful of players who make life difficult for opposing teams. The Miami Dolphins aren't a fun team to play with and are one of those bottom feeding teams that you really have to be an experienced Madden player to know how to have success with. The lack of difference making talent puts you behind the eight ball. However, we've seen the Dolphins compete in these simulations in the past and Fitzpatrick pushes the ball down field. The Dolphins have fight in this game.
Give me the Fins and the free field goal in this simulation rivalry.
