Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns 05/17/2020 – The Cincinnati Bengals face the Cleveland Browns in an NFL Madden20 Sim matchup Sunday. Both teams are hungry for a win after coming off losses.

The Bengals are struggling and would want nothing more than a win on Sunday. Unfortunately, pundits are not giving them much of a chance. To defy those odds, Cincinnati Bengals need good plays on both ends. Joe Mixon, Tyler Boyd and Andy Dalton need to come out and perform well. Mixon owns an 87 overall rating while Boyd has 83. Dalton only has a 72 overall rating but is expected to spark this team’s offense. Defensively, Atkins needs help as well. Carlos Dunlap could provide that, a player with an overall rating of 82. Aside from him, there is also William Jackson who has an 81 overall rating to show.
Cleveland Browns have players with good ratings on both ends but cannot take the Bengals lightly. Chubb will get plenty of help on offense from guys like Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham has an overall rating of 90 and is one of the top receivers for Cleveland. Kareem Hunt is another option for the Browns, owning an 88 overall rating. Quarterback Baker Mayfield may have only a 76 overall rating but his connection with Chubb, Beckham and the rest is more important. On defense, the Browns need to have others involved and not solely rely on Garrett.
