The Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs meet Saturday afternoon in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The Tennessee Titans have four players ranked 86 overall or better in safety Kevin Byard, running back Derrick Henry, cornerback Logan Ryan and tight end Delanie Walker. Just like in real life, the Titans are a physical team in the trenches and rely on a power running game behind the highly rated offensive linemen Rodger Saffold and Taylor Lewan. If the opposing defense doesn’t have a strong front seven, the Titans are going to control the clock and run the ball to victory. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill comes in at 80 rating overall and is a solid 81 speed rating and 86 acceleration rating, so he can make plays with his legs and give the defense something else to think about. The Tennessee Titans may not be the sexiest team in Madden, but they have an identity and are extremely good at the style they bring to the field.
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 Tennessee Titans are physical on both sides of the ball and their ground game makes them a tough team in the underdog role. However, I'm concerned about the Titans lack of quick striking offense in a game against the Kansas City Chiefs who can score quickly and often. If the Kansas City Chiefs get up more than one score, I don't have the confidence that the Titans can respond.
I'll lay the field goal with the Kansas City Chiefs.
