The Seattle Seahawks and the Minnesota Vikings meet in a Madden 20 NFL simulation game on Saturday night.
The Seattle Seahawks will look to build on a 40-26 win over Pittsburgh last time out. Russell Wilson leads Seattle’s 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 the Seahawks’ #1 WR 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.
The Minnesota Vikings on the other side, will look to build on their own win over the Steelers in the form of a 43-28 victory last time out. Stefon Diggs isn’t a Viking in reality anymore, but he’s still with the team in this game with a 93 overall rating with 92 catching, 91 speed, 93 acceleration and 93 agility. Adam Thielen has a 91 overall rating another wide receiver spot with 90 speed and 93 grades in acceleration and agility as well. Thielen also has 95 catching and 90 catching in traffic. Dalvin Cook leads Minnesota’s rushing attack at 90 overall with 91 speed, 92 acceleration and 94 agility while Kyle Rudolph is an 84 overall rated tight end and Kirk Cousins is 84 overall at starting quarterback. On the defensive end, Harrison Smith leads Minnesota at 95 overall with 93 power, 92 zone coverage, 95 play recognition and 93 pursuit. The Vikings have a group of 90 overall rated defenders, with Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter sitting opposite on the D-line while Eric Kendricks hunkers down the linebacking corps. Linval Joseph also sits at 86 overall in the middle of the defensive line.
The points in this spot would be tempting over the course of most of these sim games, but the Vikings have stumbled here and there as of late, while the Seahawks are back to flattening teams left and right. I just think that Seattle’s fully capable of winning this one by a field goal with no disrespect to the Vikings and what they have on their roster to this point. Give me Seattle in this one.
