The Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Thursday night.
The Philadelphia Eagles will look to build off of a 37-33 win over Tampa Bay in their last simulation matchup. Zach Ertz leads Philadelphia on offense with a 90 overall rating with 87 acceleration and 93 catching while Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson make up the top receiver pairing for the Eagles at 85 and 84 overall respectively. Carson Wentz is starting QB for Philly at 83 overall while the Eagles’ top rated players are on the right side of their offensive line with Jason Kelce at center with a 94 overall rating, Brandon Brooks at 93 overall at right guard and right tackle Lane Johnson at 89 overall. On the defense, Fletcher Cox leads Philly at 95 overall with 95 strength, 93 tackling and 96 power move while Brandon Graham is right defensive end at 87 overall with 90 power move and 93 impact blocking. Malcolm Jenkins leads the Eagles’ secondary at 86 overall with 91 acceleration, 90 agility and 88 zone coverage.
The Atlanta Falcons will look to bounce back from a 41-27 loss to San Francisco last time out. Julio Jones leads Atlanta with a 97 overall rating, with 92 speed and 94 agility to go along with 96 catching, 95 catching in traffic and 98 spectacular catch. Austin Hooper is rated 89 overall at tight end with 97 catching while Matt Ryan comes in at 87 overall as Atlanta’s starting QB and Devonta Freeman leads the Falcons’ rushing attack with an 85 overall rating with 92 speed and 94 agility. On defense, Grady Jarrett leads Atlanta with a 90 overall rating with 89 strength, 90 block shedding and 93 power move while Deion Jones is the Falcons’ top linebacker at 86 overall with 89 pursuit, 90 speed and 91 acceleration. Keanu Neal and Desmond Trufant lead the Falcons’ secondary at 85 and 84 overall respectively with Trufant logging 92 speed, 93 acceleration and 96 agility.
The points with Atlanta are tempting, especially when you have playmakers on both sides like Julio Jones, Austin Hooper and Grady Jarrett. However, the Falcons have had more downs than ups lately, and while Philadelphia’s had their own ups and downs, they’ve had a tendency to hang more points up in bunches and just feel that the Eagles are easier to trust in this spot. I’ll lay the points with Philadelphia here.
