The Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings meet Monday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Cleveland Browns don’t ever accomplish anything in real life, but they have all the talent in the world that makes them intriguing in the video game. The Browns have three players ranked 90 or better in defensive end Myles Garrett, running back Nick Chubb and wide receiver Odell Beckham. The Browns have another highly ranked running back in Kareem Hunt at 88 and a speedy slot receiver in Jarvis Landry who is ranked at 84 overall and 91 acceleration. Quarterback Baker Mayfield went from an 83 overall to a 76, but his 82 speed and 86 acceleration makes him somebody who can extend plays and even move the chains with his legs at times. The Cleveland Browns are a team you can win a lot of games with in Madden.
The Minnesota Vikings are one of those teams that’s absolutely loaded on the offensive side of the ball with wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, as well as running back Darlin Cook all ranked 90 overall or better. The Vikings defense isn’t too shabby either with safety Harrision Smith being the teams highest rated player at 95 overall while Everyone Griffen and Danielle Hunter being two speed rushers ranked in the high 80s. Quarterback Kirk Cousins is also somebody you can win with, as he has a decent rating of 82 overall and a 82 acceleration rating to do a good job of moving the pocket. The Minnesota Vikings can’t seem to make this team work in real life, but they have a lot of fun weapons to use in the video game and should have a lot of success as well as flashy plays on both sides of the ball.
The Cleveland Browns are more than capable of holding their own on the offensive side, but we've also seen them be very sloppy in these simulations and look like the Browns they are in real life. The Minnesota Vikings are one of the more balanced teams in this game and are no stranger to blowing teams out. The Vikings are easily one of the more underrated teams in this game.
I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Vikings.
