As he begins his 23rd NFL season, Tom Brady is once again regarded as the best quarterback in the league.
The star player for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has the same overall rating in Madden 23 as he did last year, 97. In the most recent iteration of the well-known video game, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who had won the position each of the previous three years, fell from 99 to 95.
Aaron Rodgers, the two-time defending MVP, is still second at the position with a total ranking of 96.
After a dismal 2019 season with the New England Patriots, Brady’s overall rating for Madden 21 dropped to 90 two years ago.
However, a switch to the Buccaneers has revived his career, and even at 44 years old, he is once again among the best in the NFL.
Brady finished second in the MVP vote to Rodgers last season despite leading the league with 5,316 passing yards and 43 touchdowns.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion is back and should be prepared for a dominant season despite briefly retiring during the winter.
After winning his fourth MVP award last year, Rodgers is also shown that getting older is not a factor.
With a quarterback rating of 111.9, the 38-year-old led the NFL and is still a top performer both on the field and in video games.
Mahomes’ drop came as a surprise considering his dominance in recent years.
However, the 26-year-284.6-yard old’s average and 98.5 passer rating from last season were both the lowest figures in his four seasons as a starter.
Tyreek Hill is now a member of the Miami Dolphins, and Mahomes has lost a few rating points, thus the Chiefs may no longer be a Madden cheat.
After Josh Allen’s score increased from 88 in the matchup last year to 92, players may decide to root for the Buffalo Bills instead.
The dual-threat athlete proved himself on the national stage with a solid postseason showing, demonstrating that his 2020 campaign was no fluke.
As they enter their third NFL seasons, Joe Burrow (90) and Justin Herbert (88) are also on the upswing.
