The New York Giants and Cleveland Browns meet Tuesday afternoon in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The New York Giants are heavy offensive team with their top-five ranked players being on that side of the ball starting with running back Saquon Barkley who is a 89 overall with a 92 speed rating. Tight end Evan Engram is an 88 overall with an 88 awareness rating, while wide receiver Golden Tate is an 83 overall rating and 96 agility rating. The concern with the Giants is quarterback Daniel Jones brings in a 70 overall rating with a 72 awareness rating and 84 speed rating. Defensively, defensive end Leonard Williams is the highest rated player at 82 overall and defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson is 80 overall with an 88 strength rating. The New York Giants are light on game changing talent, but you can win with this team if you know how to control the offensive line and mix up a power running 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 Cleveland Browns are hit or miss in these simulations and often find themselves in dogfights due to sloppiness on both sides of the ball and an offense that rarely plays up to its potential. The New York Giants don't have the top rated players to go score for score if the Browns are hot, but they are physical in the trenches and have a ground game that can suck the life out of a contest for four quarters. This feels like a lot of points to give the Browns, regardless of opponent.
Give me the Giants and the points.
