We’ll start with Jeff Maillet’s look at Aaron Rodgers earning one of the precious few 99 player ratings on the new Madden.
NFL games haven't started this season, but Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers received another accolade on Wednesday.
EA Sports, the video game giant, revealed the highest-rated NFL players in its latest edition of the Madden 19 football game, and Rodgers was one of seven stars to receive a 99 rating.
Receiver Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers, defensive tackle Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams, linebacker Von Miller of the Denver Broncos, linebacker Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers, and quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots also were honored to the 99 club with some hardware.
