'Madden NFL 19' player ratings: 9 head-turning observations include slight to Eli Manning  4 Months ago

Source:   USA Today  

1. New York quarterbacks are especially horrendous: OK, it's no secret the Giants and Jets (especially) have struggled under center lately. But with a rating of 76, two-time Giants Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning ties at 35th league-wide at the position. Ahead of him: Jets passers Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater (both rated at 78), while rookie Sam Darnold barely trails with a 75. Manning is clearly on the back side of his career, but this is a little much for a guy who played better late in the 2017 season and certainly didn't have much offensive support to lean on.

7. Browns QBs: Checking in after Nelson and Barkley, No. 1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield was scored at 81 — the same as new Browns teammate Tyrod Taylor, not to mention new Broncos starting QB Case Keenum, who both took their previous clubs to the playoffs in 2017. In fairness, Mayfield also took Oklahoma to postseason, but ... well, you get it. 

8. Internal team rankings: Some of these should make for some interesting locker room banter. What, you want examples? Andrew Luck (87) is the third-ranked Colt after Jabaal Sheard and T.Y. Hilton (both 89) ... even though we've already noted that injuries basically don't seem to matter. Watson is eighth among Texans — no issue with him trailing Watt, DeAndre Hopkins or even Jadeveon Clowney ... but Andre Hal, Johnathan Joseph and Lamar Miller? Then there's Cousins. Talk about horrid cap management, apparently the Vikings just guaranteed $84 million ... to their 13th-best player.
