EA Sports saved the best for last in its ratings reveals week. Quarterback leads the final day, and the top passer comes as no surprise.
With a second ring and Super Bowl MVP to his name, there's no debating Mahomes' standing as the best quarterback in the NFL. At 27 years old, he's only entering his prime with a resume that is already strong enough to land him in Canton, Ohio, when his playing days are finished.
Mahomes is the fifth and final "99 Club" member to be revealed this week, joining Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson, Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Cowboys guard Zack Martin and teammate Travis Kelce.
The Madden NFL 20 and Madden NFL 22 cover athlete isn't fronting the game this year, but he's leading the way among signal-callers -- and he isn't going anywhere any time soon.
Mahomes headlines a group that features just four players rated 90 or better: Cincinnati's Joe Burrow (95), Madden 24 cover athlete Josh Allen (94), and Baltimore's Lamar Jackson (91). His Super Bowl LVII adversary, Philadelphia's Jalen Hurts, rounded out the top five at 88 overall.
The defenders tasked with stopping these players will have plenty of reinforcements in Madden 24. San Francisco 49ers star and two-time All-Pro Fred Warner is the top-rated linebacker at 96 overall, followed by Ravens linebacker Roquan Smith (92), Buccaneers veteran Lavonte David (91), and Saints star Demario Davis (90).
