Here are the best teams in the NFL, according to their Madden 16 ratings, the worst teams in the NFL and a look at the team with the biggest change in ratings from last year.
The Madden 16 release date is just weeks away and we know the best Madden 16 teams and the best Madden 16 players at each position, which will help you pick out a team to take on your friends.
This may be more important than ever if you are a San Francisco 49’ers fan as Madden rates the team as a 78 — a 12 point drop from last year. The Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints also drop dramatically coming down 9 points and 8 points respectively.
We may see the New York Jets rating change thanks to Geno Smith’s broken jaw after a team-mate punched him in the locker room and put him out for 6-10 weeks.
The Madden 16 ratings for teams and players change each week based on performance, so this is not a static look at how the teams will play throughout the year, but it is a good starting point.
In Madden 16 the initial ratings come from the Madden Ratings Czar who oversaw ratings in the game for many years, but he will not play a role in the updated ratings each week.
