The Cleveland Browns and Green Bay Packers meet Thursday 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 Green Bay Packers have three players ranked 90 or better overall in left tackle David Bakhtiari, wide receiver Davante Adams and defensive tackle Kenny Clark. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers comes in with an 89 rating overall, a 82 rating in acceleration and a 91 awareness rating. Of course, a lot of the Packers success comes down to quarterback play and as long as he takes care of the ball, they’ll give you a chance to win no matter who they play. The problem is the Packers have limited weapons outside of quarterback, so scoring can be limited at times and the ground game has been weak in past simulations. However, the Green Bay Packers have eight players with an awareness rating of at least 90, which is important in a computer simulation where you’re counting on guys to do their job correctly.
The Cleveland Browns can be real hit or miss in these simulations, as the offense is either explosive or has issues moving the chains. In a game against the Green Bay Packers with Aaron Rodgers leading the offense and so many players with high awareness ratings, I'm not going to play a guessing game with the Browns. Other than a defense that can have issues stopping the run, we know what we're getting from the Packers from game to game.
I'll take the Packers by a touchdown in this spot.
