The Chicago Bears and Los Angeles Rams meet Sunday night in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The Chicago Bears rely heavily on the defensive side of the ball, as six of their top-seven ranked players are defensive players. Linebacker Khalil Mack leads the Bears with 98 overall rating while Eddie Jackson and Kyle Fuller make for one of the better secondary’s in the game. Surprisingly, wide receiver Allen Robinson is the Bears second best rated player at a 89 overall. Overall, it’s hard to get behind the Chicago Bears who have a quarterback in Mitch Trubisky who has a rating of 73 overall, which is the same as their punter Pat O’Donnell. The Bears defense should keep them in games, but you really lack confidence if this team gets behind early and has to rely on throwing the ball to get back in it.
The Los Angeles Rams may not have accomplished much last season, but they have eight players who are ranked at least 85 overall in Madden20. Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is one of the best players in the game with a 99 overall rating and a 99 strength rating. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey is a 94 overall and 93 acceleration rating, while left tackle Andrew Whitworth is 88 overall and has a 90 awareness rating. Running back Todd Gurley has a 86 overall rating and a 91 speed rating and quarterback Jared Goff is rated 77 overall with an 86 acceleration rating. The Los Angeles Rams has one of the better wide receiver trios in this game and have a defense filled with game changers. You can win a lot in this game playing with the Los Angeles Rams.
Oddsmakers seem to be all over the place with the Los Angeles Rams, as they've been favorites in some weird spots. This game seems fair given that they're going up against a Chicago Bears squad that's limited offensively and can play some really ugly simulations. The Rams may be a bit underrated given that the offense is better than advertised, and we know what the defense is capable of with Donald and Ramsey leading the way.
I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Rams in this simulation contest.
