The Carolina Panthers and the Green Bay Packers meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Tuesday night.
The Carolina Panthers will be out to bounce back from a 16-6 loss to Seattle in their last matchup. Carolina is in one of the most enviable spots in this year’s edition of Madden as the only team with two of the game’s five highly-touted 99 overall rated players, and they have one on each side of the ball. Christian McCaffrey leads the Panthers’ offense with 92 speed, 93 acceleration and 97 agility as well as 98 carrying and 96 juke. Greg Olsen is 88 overall at tight end with 93 catching and 93 catching in traffic while D.J. Moore comes in at 85 overall with 93 speed and acceleration and 81 catching at WR. Cam Newton remains the starting QB for Carolina but only at 79 overall. On defense, Luke Kuechly has the other 99 rating at linebacker, with 90 jumping, 91 impact blocking and 99 tackling as well as 99 play recognition and 96 pursuit. After Kuechly, Gerald McCoy and Kawann Short anchor the defensive line at 85 and 84 overall, with both possessing strength and impact blocking ratings in the low-90s.
The Green Bay Packers will be out to build on a 41-27 win over Baltimore last time out. Davante Adams leads the Packers on offense at 94 overall, with 94 catching and 94 catching in traffic while also possessing 89 speed and 92 acceleration. Aaron Rodgers is the starter at quarterback with an 89 overall rating, with 94 throwing power, 90 short pass accuracy and ratings in the high-80s in medium and deep pass accuracy while Aaron Jones leads Green Bay’s ground attack with an 87 overall attribute rating with 93 carrying, 92 juke, 91 speed and 93 acceleration. On defense, Kenny Clark leads Green Bay’s defensive front at 90 overall with 95 strength with 92 block shedding and 89 power moves while Jaire Alexander is not far off at 89 overall to lead the Green Bay secondary at cornerback, with 92 man coverage in addition to 93 ratings in speed and acceleration with 94 agility. Za’Darius Smith and Adrian Amos come in at 88 and 87 overall respectively as well as a pair of key pieces in a strong defensive group for Green Bay.
I’ve gone back and forth on this game, as the Packers aren’t a team I’m necessarily high on but they keep stepping up against the better teams, but Carolina isn’t a team to sleep on either. Instead of trying to pick a side, I’m going to side with the over. I think both of these teams are capable of putting up 30 if need be, and I could see this one being a 34-27 final either way so I’ll take the over in what should be a high scoring game.
