The Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals meet Sunday afternoon in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The Seattle Seahawks are led by two of the higher ranked players in the game with linebacker Bobby Wagner coming in at 98 overall and quarterback Russell Wilson carrying a 97 rating overall. Wide receiver Tyler Lockett has a speed of 93 and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has seen his ranking drop since the games launch, but he still comes in at an 88 overall and has an 87 rating for speed that makes him tough to stop once he clears the edge. The Seattle Seahawks are one of the flashier teams in the game due to the overall speed at key positions, and they can change the momentum of the game in a hurry.
The Arizona Cardinals have their top-three ranked players on the defensive side of the ball in linebacker Chandler Jones (90 overall), cornerback Patrick Peterson (88 overall) and safety Budda Baker (84 overall). Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald brings in a 83 overall with an 86 acceleration rating. The real difference maker for the Cardinals is quarterback Kyler Murray, who may be just a 75 overall with a 69 awareness rating, but he brings in a 91 speed rating and 92 acceleration rating. The only quarterback faster than Murray in this video game is the Baltimore Ravens Lamar Jackson. Having that type of playmaker with the ball constantly in his hands is a game changer and a big play waiting to happen.
The Seattle Seahawks should win this game considering they have the edge at just about every position and one of the highest rated quarterbacks who can takeover a game at any moment. However, the Arizona Cardinals are better in this game than they are in real life, and they have difference makers on both sides of the ball, especially on defense where they have highly rated players at all three levels. We're also getting double-digit free points, which can be key in these simulations where the computer is hard to trust. You have to have a lot of confidence to lay big numbers in these toss up simulations.
Give me the free points and the Arizona Cardinals.
