Arizona Cardinals vs Oakland Raiders 05/07/2020 – The Arizona Cardinals face the Oakland Raiders in an NFL Madden20 SIM matchup on Thursday. Both teams are going off victories and will try to make it two-in-a-row. NFL betting lines favor the Raiders to come out victorious. However, anything can happen in simulation games, meaning the Cardinals could come out and defy those odds. The Raiders will rely once more on Rodney Hudson, the team’s player with a top overall rating of 93. Richie Incognito will be in focus as well with an 87 overall rating. On the other side, the Cardinals will bank on Larry Fitzgerald anew who has an 83 overall rating. Kenyan Drake will hold up the fort defensively, owning an 81 overall rating.

It would be foolish to write off Arizona Cardinals heading into Thursday’s sim game with most banking on player rating. But given that this how it is in simulation, Arizona can just hope that in-game situations alter the course. If ever they do lose, it will not a trashing. Fitzgerald and Drake hold decent ratings of 83 and 81 plus they have other players to bank on. That includes quarterback Kyler Murray (75) who could rise to the occasion. Defense could also make a big difference. Arizona has Chandler Jones (90) and Patrick Peterson (92) to hold up the fort. If they can check the Raiders offense, this sim game could be interesting.
Oakland Raiders own a vaunted offensive line that makes them slight favorites over the Cardinals. Leading them is Hudson and Incognito, players that need to connect with quarterback Derek Carr (80). There is also Trent Brown (86), Josh Jacobs (85) and Darren Waller (85) ready to pick up the offense. On defense, Oakland will rely on Lamarcus Joyner (83) to lead the way. After him, the Raiders have several players owning 79 overall rating or lower that makes them a pretty tough unit to penetrate.
