Madden 20 has set the internet ablaze with the release of the ratings, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers make up one-third of the strongest players in the game.
The Madden 20 players ratings have been all of the hype and noise over the past two days as we continue to add to the noise. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have two of the strongest players in the entire game in defensive linemen Vita Vea and Ndamukong Suh.
While Los Angeles Rams’ defensive tackle Aaron Donald remains the strongest player in Madden 20 with his strength rating maxed out at 99, Suh is not far behind with a 98 and Vea trails with a 97 strength rating. Only three other players are a 97 strength or above as Vea and Suh are in extremely rare company.
Indianapolis Colts’ guard Quinton Nelson and Houston Texans’ defensive end J.J. Watt both also have a 97 strength rating, while Minnesota Vikings’ defensive tackle Linval Joseph joins Suh as the only other player in the game with a 98 strength rating. Only six players in this escalon of strength, and one-third of them rest on the Buccaneers’ roster.
While this is just a video game, this type of strength will come in handy when the two big men are trying to clear lanes in real life for the explosive linebacker duo of Lavonte David and Devin White to make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Hopefully virtual analytics on paper translate to the football field for the Buccaneers in 2019.
The Buccaneers will be a fun team to rebuild in Madden 20 and these two players are a good foundation to keep. Look out for the tandem of Suh and Vea, coming to a backfield near you in the pewter and red this season.
