Football is back ladies and gentlemen! And that means the start of my weekly Madden 20 game previews and breakdowns for each NFL game. Every week, I will simulate each NFL game and give everyone a breakdown of the stats from each game. We kick off the season tonight on Thursday Night Football with a giant NFC North showdown between the Bears and the Packers.
Green Bay Packers vs Chicago Bears – 8:20 pm on NBC
As many expected, there was not a ton of offense in this game. Chicago couldn’t get the rushing or passing attack going and that seemed to fall on the offensive line, as Trubisky was sacked six times. However, Trubisky found his two top targets Anthony Miller and Taylor Gabriel for touchdowns. Despite the past failures, the Bears kicking squad made all the difference as they beat out the Packers by a field goal to go 1-0 on the season, leaving Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers without a real identity for yet another start of the year. The only bright spot on the Packers? Young wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who housed eight receptions for 109 yards. Fantasy Sleeper? You tell me. However, it wasn’t enough for the Packers to come away with the victory.
Tune in Sunday for breakdown and more Madden 20 predictions for the remained of the week one games.
