Patrick Mahomes’ reign as Madden’s highest-rated quarterback is over.
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback held the best overall rating among quarterbacks in each of the last three editions of Madden, but Tom Brady has claimed that title this year.
The seven-time Super Bowl champion leads all players at his position in “Madden NFL 23” with a 97 overall rating. That just barely edges out two-time defending MVP Aaron Rodgers, who has a 96 rating. Mahomes sits behind Brady and Rodgers in third with a 95 rating.
The only other signal callers with a rating in the 90s are Josh Allen (92) and Joe Burrow (90).
Dak Prescott (89 rating), Justin Herbert (88), Lamar Jackson (87), Russell Wilson (87) and Matthew Stafford (85) round out the top 10.
Some other highlights from the Madden quarterback ratings:
- While Kyler Murray is now the second-highest-paid quarterback, Madden doesn’t view him as a top-10 player at the position. The $230.5 million man is tied for 11th with Deshaun Watson with an 84 rating.
- Tua Tagovailoa has the same rating as his backup, veteran Teddy Bridgewater, at 75.
- The NFC East has three starting quarterbacks with below a 75 rating in Jalen Hurts (74), Carson Wentz (73) and Daniel Jones (70). Jones' rating is tied with Browns backup Jacoby Brissett, Saints backup Andy Dalton and Falcons rookie Desmond Ridder.
- You have to go all the way down to the high 60s before you find the first Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback. Mitchell Trubisky has a 69 overall rating, while first-round rookie Kenny Pickett is at 68. And you have to go even further down the rankings before you reach the first Seattle Seahawks QB, with Drew Lock at 66, Jacob Eason at 62 and Geno Smith at 60.
- Speaking of Pickett, he is tied for third with Matt Corral among rookie signal callers. Desmond Ridder has the best rating among that group at 70 and Malik Willis is in second at 69.
- Mac Jones leads the second-year quarterbacks with a 78 rating, followed by Trevor Lawrence (76), Justin Fields (74), Zach Wilson (73), Trey Lance (72) and Davis Mills (71).
