The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins meet Wednesday night in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The Dallas Cowboys have four players ranked 91 or better overall in running back Ezekiel Elliott, wide receiver Amari Cooper and offensive linemen Zack Martin and Tyron Smith. That makes for a strong running game and a difference maker on the outside. Quarterback Dan Prescott is rated 81 overall, but he has a decent speed rating of 83 and acceleration rating of 86, so he can hurt defenses with his feet. Speaking of the defense, the Cowboys have a shutdown corner in Byron Jones who has an 88 rating overall and a top tier pass rusher in DeMarcus Lawrence who also has an 88 rating overall and a 88 acceleration rating. The Dallas Cowboys are loaded with difference makers on both sides of the ball and have to be one of the more balanced teams in this years version of Madden.
The Miami Dolphins don’t have a ton to offer in this game, but three of their top-four rated players are on the defensive side in cornerbacks Xavien Howard and Aqib Talib, as well as safety Reshad Jones. Wide receiver DeVante Parker is the Dolphins highest rated player at 84 overall with a 91 speed and acceleration ratings. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick checks out at 74 overall with an 80 awareness rating and 80 acceleration rating. The x-factor for the Dolphins is wide receiver Jakeem Grant, who has a 96 sped rating and 94 acceleration rating, one of the few difference makers on this team capable of turning out a big play. Overall, the Miami Dolphins aren’t scaring anybody and have just four players ranked 81 overall or higher. At least in Madden20, the Dolphins are a tough team to sell and can often find themselves over their head.
The Dallas Cowboys are obviously the better team here with weapons on both sides to punish lesser teams, however, I rarely lay double-digit chalk in these simulations where you're relying on a computer to play correctly. We've seen many double-digit underdogs win outright and we see countless boneheaded plays in every game where the computer doesn't understand game situations. The Miami Dolphins also aren't as bad as you'd think given their rating, and they play aggressive on the offensive side.
Give me the Dolphins and the free points.
