The Dallas Cowboys and the Los Angeles Chargers meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Wednesday night.
The Dallas Cowboys will look to build off of a 37-34 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in their last simulation matchup. Ezekiel Elliott leads Dallas’ offense, rated 93 overall at starting RB with 90 speed, 91 acceleration and 95 agility while Amari Cooper leads the Cowboys’ receiving group at 91 overall with 92 speed, 96 agility and 89 catching. Dak Prescott has an 81 overall rating center at starting quarterback with 87 throwing power and 88 short pass accuracy. The Cowboys also have some beef on their offensive line, with Zack Martin boasting a team-high 97 overall rating while Tyron Smith is at left tackle at 91 overall. On the defensive side, Byron Jones and Demarcus Lawrence lead the Cowboys’ D, each at 88 overall apiece, with Lawrence owning a 93 finesse move rating, 89 power move and 88 block shedding rating while Jones has 92 speed, 94 acceleration and 96 agility to go along with an 84 man coverage rating and 90 zone coverage rating in the Dallas secondary.
The Los Angeles Chargers will try to pick up another W after a 29-10 win over the Cardinals in their last simulation matchup. Keenan Allen leads the Bolts at 92 overall with 90 catching and 94 catching in traffic in addition to 89 speed, 92 acceleration and 92 agility while Hunter Henry is the Chargers’ top tight end at 87 overall with 89 catching as well. Melvin Gordon III and Philip Rivers are no longer on the Chargers in reality anymore, but they’re still there in the game at 84 overall with Gordon rated at 92 speed and 92 agility with 90 carrying and 90 juke while Rivers has 94 short pass accuracy and 92 medium pass accuracy. On the defensive end is where the Chargers are stashing their top-rated players with Joey Bosa leading the pass rush at 91 overall with 90 impact blocking as well as 97 finesse move and 87 strength while Casey Hayward Jr. is at 91 overall in the secondary with 91 acceleration and 92 agility in addition to 89 speed and 90+ ratings in man coverage and zone coverage. Melvin Ingram III and Derwin James Jr. each come in at 88 overall on the defensive end for the Chargers.
Dallas is always capable of putting up lots of points and are one of those teams that the game loves a lot more than real life, while the Chargers are in the same boat but have provided value as an underdog often during these sim games. With that said, I think this game could go either way so rather than pick a side, I’ll side with the over. I think this is a simulation where both teams end up scoring into the 30s so give me the over in this one.
