The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Seattle Seahawks meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Wednesday night.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will be trying to rebound from a 43-28 loss to Minnesota in their last time out. JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the Steelers’ offense at wide receiver with an 86 overall rating, which includes a rating of 91 speed and 92 acceleration as well as 90 catching and 93 catching in traffic while James Conner is the top running back with an 81 overall rating with 86 speed, 89 acceleration and 89 carrying. Ben Roethlisberger is starting QB with an 81 overall rating with 89 throwing power and 89 short passing accuracy. On D, Cameron Heyward leads Pittsburgh rated at 90 overall with 93 strength, 91 tackling and 92 power move while Stephon Tuitt is on the other side of the front at 87 overall with 90 block shedding and 91 strength.
The Seattle Seahawks will look to build off of a 38-10 win over Baltimore in their last sim matchup. Russell Wilson leads the Seahawks offense with a solid 97 overall rating with 86 speed, 90 acceleration and 93 agility as well as 91 throwing power and 93 short pass accuracy, 94 medium pass accuracy and 96 deep pass accuracy. Tyler Lockett is Seattle’s top wideout with an 88 overall rating including 93 catching, 93 speed, 92 acceleration and 97 agility while Chris Carson also has an 86 rating in leading Seattle’s backfield with 88 speed, 89 acceleration and 91 stiff arm. On the defense, Bobby Wagner is Seattle’s top defender with a 98 overall rating, with 96 tackling, 90 impact blocking, 98 power, as well as high-90s attribute ratings in pursuit and play recognition. Jadeveon Clowney is right behind on the d line at 88 overall with 95 pursuit, 91 play recognition, 87 speed and 90 acceleration.
I was tempted by Pittsburgh and the points for a while, but the problem is that the Steelers have fallen off more often than not lately and every time I find myself backing Pittsburgh, the Steelers burn me, and when I don’t, they show up. So take it with a grain of salt, but I’m rolling with Seattle here. The Seahawks have just been easier to trust, especially defensively, and I think Seattle wins this one by at least 6 points, so I’ll take the Seahawks and lay the points here.
