Madden 13 Team Ratings

One of the best ways to pass the boring July days without football is to play endless hours of Madden.

The good news is, both the NFL season and Madden 13 are right around the corner. M13 is featuring a new physics engine that from all the promos looks like it could finally be the game-changer Madden fans have been waiting for. We’ll have a review of the new game later this summer but for now, I thought I’d share the initial team ratings with you if you haven’t seen them yet.

Team Rating
New England Patriots 86
Green Bay Packers 86
Pittsburgh Steelers 85
Philadelphia Eagles 84
New York Giants 84
San Francisco 49ers 81
Chicago Bears 81
Atlanta Falcons 81
Baltimore Ravens 80
Dallas Cowboys 79
New York Jets 79
Washington Redskins 78
New Orleans Saints 78
Houston Texans 78
San Diego Chargers 78
Detroit Lions 77
Carolina Panthers 76
Denver Broncos 76
Kansas City Chiefs 76
Arizona Cardinals 75
Cincinnati Bengals 74
Buffalo Bills 74
Seattle Seahawks 73
Tennessee Titans 72
St. Louis Rams 71
Minnesota Vikings 71
Oakland Raiders 70
Jacksonville Jaguars 70
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 69
Miami Dolphins 68
Cleveland Browns 67
Indianapolis Colts 66

The first thing that you will notice here is that the ratings for teams, on the whole, are much lower than normal. Not a single team has a rating of 87 or highers, so while KC’s rating is lower than you might have expected, it is important to frame your thinking with that knowledge.

I can live with this as an initial offering. I like that the Chiefs have the same rating as Denver, though I am not sure why SD gets the nod as the division leader. I think they belong on the same line as KC and Denver. Also, Cam Newton is awesome and all ,but what the heck are the Panthers doing rated higher than the Chiefs?

The Raiders, who I think got worse this offseason, took a bad tumble. They’re near the bottom of the league with a 70.

What do you think, Addicts? Are there any other teams the Chiefs should be rated higher than?
