The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks meet Monday afternoon in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The New England Patriots have three players ranked in the 90s in cornerback Stephon Gilmore, quarterback Tom Brady and safety Devin McCourty. This day is obviously all about Brady with the Patriots hosting four simulation games, and he brings a 95 awareness rating to the table with a 70 agility rating. However, when you throw in linebacker Dont’a Hightower and his 88 overall rating, the Pats rely heavily on their defense in this game with three of their top-four ranked players being on that side of the ball. Offensively, wide receiver Julian Edelman has a solid 91 acceleration rating and 87 overall rating, while the offensive line has three players with an 84 overall rating or above. The New England Patriots are short on offensive weapons, but they have an effective defense and a quarterback who doesn’t get fooled often and takes care of the football.
The Seattle Seahawks are led by two of the higher ranked players in the game with linebacker Bobby Wagner coming in at 98 overall and quarterback Russell Wilson carrying a 97 rating overall. Wide receiver Tyler Lockett has a speed of 93 and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has seen his ranking drop since the games launch, but he still comes in at an 88 overall and has an 87 rating for speed that makes him tough to stop once he clears the edge. The Seattle Seahawks are one of the flashier teams in the game due to the overall speed at key positions, and they can change the momentum of the game in a hurry.
The New England Patriots can be hit or miss in these simulations and the defensive effort isn't always there to make them worthy of being the constant favors they usually are. The Seattle Seahawks have one of the top rated quarterbacks in this game who is tough to slowdown once he finds his groove, and that defense is fast and aggressive. This is a game the Seahawks could run away with things if the Pats defense doesn't play better than usual.
In a near toss up, give me the Seattle Seahawks.
