The popular video game is about to be released again in it’s annual installment. Let’s just say the Colts have some players with higher rankings than they did a year ago.
Madden is a great video game. It has been played for over 20 years now and different generations of players have gotten to see themselves in the game. I always play as the Colts myself, no matter how good they are in the game. This year, that shouldn’t be a problem.
The Colts have several players rated 85 or above. The highest ranked players are Andrew Luck (92), T.Y. Hilton (91), Justin Houston (87), Quenton Nelson (87), and Eric Ebron (86). This is higher than almost all of their rankings in last year’s game.
Luck definitely deserves that high of a rating after the year he had. He was able to have the second most touchdown passes in the league and put to bed any injury concerns people may have had about him. His two top targets, Hilton and Ebron, had good years too and deserve their ranking.
Nelson being ranked that high is a little surprising. Sure he was named First Team All-Pro as a rookie and made the Pro Bowl. But he still is only a second-year player. Normally it takes a few years to acquire such a high rating. But he is definitely deserving.
Houston’s ranking is the most surprising to me. While his career in Kansas City has been good, he now is 30 years old. That is when pass rushers typically begin to slow down. An 87 rating seems high for someone like that.
If the Colts play even better this year, more players will have high rankings like these guys.
