Matt Ryan Cracks Top 10 Madden QB Rankings, Rodgers 3rd

EASports continues to release the player ratings for its Madden ’22 release on August 17th.

Matt Ryan cracked the Top 10 list, barely. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback checks in at No. 10 on the list.

Interestingly, Ryan is one spot behind the Ryan Tannehill of the Tennessee Titans. Tannehill had the fifth best passer efficiency rating last year under offensive coordinator Arthur Smith.

Smith is now the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, and there’s nothing in Tannehill’s previous seven seasons in the league that suggested he was capable of a 33 touchdown, seven interception season.

Tannehill’s previous numbers prior to playing two years under Smith were 123 touchdowns against 75 interceptions, a 1.64 touchdown to interception ratio.

In two seasons under Smith, Tannehill had 55 touchdowns against only 13 interceptions, a 3.93 touchdown to interception ratio.

Ryan should benefit greatly playing under Smith and could see his stock, and rating, rise as the season wears on.

Ryan is the only Falcons to crack the Top 10 at any position on Madden ’22.

Patrick Mahomes is at the top of the list with a perfect 99 rating.

Tom Brady is No. 2. He turns 44 next week, is the reigning Super Bowl champion quarterback with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and threw 40 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2020.

Aaron Rodgers, the reigning MVP comes in behind Brady. Rodgers led his Green Bay Packers to a 13-3 record, won the MVP, threw 48 touchdowns and only five interceptions.

But his Packers lost to the Bucs in a game in which Rodgers and Brady both threw three touchdowns. Brady threw three interceptions while Rodgers had one.

Brady got the win and the nod from Madden ’22.
