Baltimore Ravens: Top 5 Madden 20 ratings that are spot on
1. Earl Thomas: Rated 95 overall
When you have arguably the best safety in football, you need to make sure he’s rated highly. Madden 20 got this right with Earl Thomas, giving him a 95 overall.
Not only was Thomas given a 95 overall, but his rating is first among all safeties (free and strong). Thomas was granted a 98 overall for zone coverage with 80 catching, making him a threat to pick off any balls thrown his way. Just like in real life, Thomas is going to be a ball hawk in Madden 20.
It’s nice to see the guys working for EA Sports treating Thomas equally. Despite two leg injuries over the last three seasons, Thomas still has a 91 injury rating, making him a very durable player. What makes this so special is that the rating crew correctly identified that Thomas’ injuries were more of a case of bad luck than him being injury prone. Prior to 2016, Thomas had never missed a start while recording 21 interceptions (2010-2015).
Madden 20 did a fantastic job reflecting this into his rating and not allowing injuries to derail his skills. Thomas is just more reason that the Baltimore Ravens secondary will no only be elite in real life, but also in the virtual world.
