The New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Saturday afternoon.
The New England Patriots will look to build off of a 33-25 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in their last sim appearance. Tom Brady leads the Pats at QB in this game with a 91 overall rating with 90 throw power and 96 short pass accuracy while Julian Edelman is #1 on the depth chart in New England’s receiving group at 87 overall with 91 acceleration, 91 agility and 85 catching. James White leads New England’s rushing attack at 83 overall with 89 speed, 92 acceleration and 90 agility. On defense, Stephon Gilmore leads the Patriots with a 98 overall rating with 99 awareness and 92 speed with 94 acceleration and 94 agility while also rated at 98 in man coverage and 96 in zone coverage. Devin McCourty is New England’s second-highest rated CB at 92 overall with 93 zone coverage and 90 marks across the board in speed, agility and acceleration. Dont’a Hightower leads New England’s linebacking group at 88 overall with 91 impact blocking and 92 tackling in addition to 93 play recognition and 93 pursuit.
The Los Angeles Rams will look to build off of a 36-24 win over Tampa Bay in their last sim appearance. Cooper Kupp leads the Rams’ offense and receiving group with an 87 overall rating with 94 agility and 95 catching while Robert Woods is not far off of the pace with an 86 overall rating including 94 catching and Brandin Cooks follows at 85 overall with 95 speed, 92 acceleration and 95 agility. Todd Gurley II leads L.A.’s rushing attack at 86 overall with 91 speed and 91 acceleration as well as 95 agility and 89 carrying. On defense, Aaron Donald is one of the s five highly-touted 99 overall rated players with 90 acceleration, 99 power move, 96 finesse move, 97 block shedding, 93 impact blocking and 92 tackling. Jalen Ramsey leads the Rams’ secondary at 94 overall with 95 man coverage and 95 zone coverage with 92 speed, 93 acceleration and 90 agility.
The Patriots finally bagged themselves a cover against the Eagles but that doesn’t change the fact that New England, albeit a talented team in the game, are still struggling to cover games for the most part in these sim matchups. Los Angeles has picked it up in the sims lately and have been covering with more consistency. The Rams also have some decent pieces in their own right and I think L.A. can keep this one within the number so I’ll take the Rams and the points here.
