Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is coming off an MVP season, but in the video game Madden 22, he will not receive the biggest achievement in the game – a 99 overall rating.

The “Madden NFL” video game releases day-by-day the ratings of the top-10 players in each position. On Friday, July 30, they released the quarterback ratings and the reigning MVP didn’t get the top spot.

Rodgers received a 96 overall after throwing the most touchdowns in the league (48) with five interceptions, led the NFL in completion percentage (70.7), rating (121.5), QB rating (84.4), and winning the NFL MVP honors.

All that wasn’t good enough to earn the top overall among quarterbacks or to join the exclusive Madden 99 Club.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes received the only 99 overall rating among quarterbacks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback received a 97 overall rating.

Rodgers isn’t the only Packer to be snubbed by their Madden rating. Za’Darius Smith was rated as an 89 overall and the tenth highest overall among edge rushers. Then, after tying Travis Kelce for most touchdowns among tight ends, Robert Tonyan didn’t even crack the top-10 in his position.

Outside of the Packers, there were still other questionable ratings by Madden. Players like Khalil Mack (96) and J.J. Watt (94) received too high of a rating, then players like Minkah Fitzpatrick (89) and Josh Allen (87) were rated too low.

This doesn’t seem like a big deal to fans, because it’s a video game. However, some players look forward to seeing their rating.

Madden does update ratings throughout the season, so there’s a chance Rodgers can take the top quarterback spot or join the others in the 99 Club. Last year, in Madden 21, Rodgers and Adams were originally not in the 99 Club or rated the highest in their position, but they finished the season as one of the best players in the game.

Madden 22 will be coming out soon. The initial release date is Aug. 28, but if people order the Deluxe or MVP Edition (which doesn’t have Rodgers, the NFL MVP, on the cover), they can play three days earlier.
