The Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs meet Tuesday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Arizona Cardinals have their top-three ranked players on the defensive side of the ball in linebacker Chandler Jones (90 overall), cornerback Patrick Peterson (88 overall) and safety Budda Baker (84 overall). Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald brings in a 83 overall with an 86 acceleration rating. The real difference maker for the Cardinals is quarterback Kyler Murray, who may be just a 75 overall with a 69 awareness rating, but he brings in a 91 speed rating and 92 acceleration rating. The only quarterback faster than Murray in this video game is the Baltimore Ravens Lamar Jackson. Having that type of playmaker with the ball constantly in his hands is a game changer and a big play waiting to happen.
The Kansas City Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champs and have six players ranked in the 90s overall. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is damn near a cheat code with his 99 rating overall, 97 awareness rating and 87 acceleration rating. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill has a 96 rating overall and his acceleration and speed ratings are 99, and he’s an easy touchdown once he gets off press coverage. Defensive end Frank Clark is a speedy pass rusher who gets to the pass rusher regularly and tight end Travis Kelce is a beast across the middle with his 96 rating. Like most teams that win the title, Madden shows love to a lot of the players and it’s been no different for the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Arizona Cardinals can be a tricky team in these simulations as most people don't think they're all that good, but they have an underrated defense with highly skilled playmakers, and the offense has speed that can make up for a lack of highly rated players. Let some of these Cardinals get in the open field and they can find enough points to cover some of these numbers. However, the Kansas City Chiefs are head and shoulders the better team in this game and most times will win this game comfortably.
I'll lay a big number in these simulations for once.
