EA Sports has released their weekly Madden NFL 17 roster update, just in time for week 4 of the NFL season.
Week 4 gets underway tonight as the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Miami Dolphins in southern Ohio. The Bengals are a team with Super Bowl aspirations who are off to a rough start, while the middling Dolphins are just trying to stay afloat. This could be what Andy Dalton’s crew needs to get back to .500, or the Dolphins could surprise. Miami played well against the Seahawks and the Patriots in weeks 1 and 2, but it took an overtime win against the lowly Browns to get their first victory of the season last week.
There is much to be determined in week 4, but before we get there, let’s take a look at the players whose Madden ratings have risen and fallen based on their week 3 performance.
Terrelle Pryor Sr., WR, Cleveland Browns (+3 to 77 Overall)
Jamie Collins, LOLB, New England Patriots (+1 to 93 Overall)
Orleans Darkwa, New York Giants (+1 to 74 Overall)
Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers (-2 to 92 Overall)
Ryan Clady, LT, New York Jets (-3 to 81 Overall)
Tyvon Branch, CB, Arizona Cardinals (-5 to 76 Overall)
The full list of rating changes can be found here.
What is going with Cam Newton? The mercurial quarterback continues to struggle. He will be in tough this week against the Falcons, who seem to have found their groove as of late.
Can Jamie Collins and his Pats stay undefeated against the Bills this week? Rex Ryan’s squad can’t be taken lightly after their upset win against the Cardinals in week 3.
