Oakland Raiders vs. New York Jets
Madden20 Sim: Sunday, June 14, 2020 at 6:00 pm
The Line: New York Jets +1.5 -- Over/Under: 45.5
The Oakland Raiders and New York Jets meet Sunday night in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The Oakland Raiders aren’t all that fun to play with in this game, as their highest rated player is their center in Rodney Hudson, who is a 93 overall rating with a 90 strength rating. Richie Incognito and Trent Brown are the Raiders next highest rated players, which makes for a strong offensive line but really thin on the difference makers. Running back Josh Jacobs is rated 85 overall with a 91 acceleration rating while tight end Darren Waller is rated 85 overall with an 89 speed rating. Quarterback Derek Carr is rated 80 overall with an 87 acceleration rating and Tyrell Williams is his top ranked receiver with an 82 overall rating and 95 agility rating. The Oakland Raiders have one of the better offensive lines in the game, but the defense can get gashed and the offense can struggle to produce the big play that really opens the game up.
The New York Jets didn’t win a whole lot in the real life season, but they have some talent on the video game side, especially on defense where safety Jalen Adams and linebackers CJ Mosely and Avery Williamson are all ranked 85 or higher overall. Running back Le’Veon Bell carries an 88 overall rating with a 89 speed rating and 92 acceleration rating. Wide receiver Robby Anderson is the fastest player on the team with a 94 speed rating and 84 overall rating. Quarterback Sam Darnold has a 74 overall rating with a 77 awareness rating and a 83 acceleration rating. For a team that didn’t win a whole lot on the actual field, the New York Jets have some talent in the virtual world and they’re good enough to win with if played with online. Don’t sleep on these Jets.
The Oakland Raiders are one of those teams that doesn't have much going for them in these simulations outside of a solid offensive line and a talented running back. Like in real life, the Raiders defense is trash and the offensive playmakers on the outside are thin. The New York Jets have one of the more underrated defenses in this game and they have speed at the skill positions on offense. The Jets can surprise some folks in this game.
I'll gladly take the Jets, the better team, and the free points.
