The Denver Broncos and the Pittsburgh Steelers meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Saturday afternoon.
The Denver Broncos will look to build on a 29-24 win over the Chicago Bears in their last matchup. Phillip Lindsay leads the offense for the Broncos with an 85 overall rating at running back with 93 carrying as well as 93 speed and 91 acceleration. Courtland Sutton is not far off as Denver’s top receiver with 89 speed, 92 acceleration and 92 catching as part of his 84 overall rating. On defense, Von Miller leads the Broncos with a team-high 96 overall rating, including 93 tackling, 89 impact blocking, 90 finesse move and 93 power move. Chris Harris Jr. is at cornerback at 90 overall with a 91 man coverage rating and 90 speed. Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson make up a strong combination in the Denver secondary at 89 and 87 overall.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to rebound from back-to-back losses after a 50-31 loss to New Orleans last time out. JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the Steelers on the offensive side of the ball at wide receiver with an 86 overall rating, which includes a rating of 91 speed and 92 acceleration as well as 90 catching and 93 catching in traffic while James Conner is Pittsburgh’s top RB with an 81 overall rating with 86 speed, 89 acceleration and 89 carrying. Ben Roethlisberger is the starting quarterback with an 81 overall rating with 89 throwing power and 89 short pass accuracy. On the defense, Cameron Heyward leads Pittsburg with a 90 overall rating with 93 strength, 91 tackling and 92 power move while Stephon Tuitt is on the other side of the front at 87 overall with 90 block shedding and 91 strength.
The Steelers have had their good days, but we’ve seen the Steelers stumble here and there as of late. The Broncos on the other hand, continue to be given this underdog role and they continue to thrive in the sim games, narrowly losing to the Patriots by a single point and then beating the Bills and the Bears as a dog as well. I think this is another spot where the Broncos are a live dog, so I’ll take a shot with Denver and the points as well as putting a bit on Denver ML.
