The Atlanta Falcons and the Chicago Bears meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Tuesday night.
The Atlanta Falcons will try to rebound from a 33-20 loss to the New England Patriots in their last outing. Julio Jones leads Atlanta with a 97 overall rating, with 92 speed and 94 agility to go along with 96 catching, 95 catching in traffic and 98 spectacular catch. Austin Hooper’s rated 89 overall at tight end with 97 catching while Matt Ryan comes in at 87 overall at starting QB and Devonta Freeman leads the Falcons’ rushing attack with an 85 overall rating with 92 speed and 94 agility. On defense, Grady Jarrett leads the Falcons, rated 90 overall with 89 strength, 90 block shedding and 93 power move while Deion Jones is the Falcons’ top linebacker at 86 overall with 89 pursuit, 90 speed and 91 acceleration. Keanu Neal and Desmond Trufant lead the Falcons’ secondary at 85 and 84 overall respectively with Trufant logging 92 speed, 93 acceleration and 96 agility.
The Chicago Bears will try to bounce back from a 37-27 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in their last sim appearance. Allen Robinson II leads the Bears on the offensive end with an 89 overall rating with 90 speed and 93 acceleration as well as 96 catching while Trey Burton is at 82 overall at tight end and Taylor Gabriel is an 81 overall rated wide receiver. Tarik Cohen leads the Chicago backfield at 78 overall while Mitch Trubisky is still Chicago’s starting quarterback at 73 overall. On defense, Khalil Mack leads Chicago with a solid 98 overall rating, with 87 speed and 89 acceleration along with 94 tackling, 90 impact blocking, 91 block shedding, 91 finesse move and 95 power move. Eddie Jackson is rated 89 overall at free safety with a 94 grade in zone coverage and 90 acceleration while Kyle Fuller has 92 speed and acceleration at cornerback with 91 zone coverage and Akiem Hicks is at 88 overall at left defensive end with 91 block shedding and 89 power move.
I get the Bears being favored, but the problem is I still don’t agree with it, even if the Bears have burned me from time to time. As good as the Bears’ defense is, it’s still struggled in these sim games against pretty good offenses like we saw against the Rams. The Falcons have a good enough defense that they can get it done here as well, so I’ll take Atlanta and the points as well as putting a bit on the Falcons ML.
