Vikings top-10 highest-rated Madden NFL 23 players – Vikings Wire

The Minnesota Vikings are entering the 2022 season with a sense of purpose, and that purpose can be felt through the Madden NFL 23 video game.

This is one of the more talented rosters the team has had in years, and they’re hopeful it translates into them mirroring the 2021 Cincinnati Bengals with a wildly unexpected Super Bowl appearance.

The team has three players with a 90-plus overall rating in the upcoming Madden NFL game. But there are obviously a couple of head-scratchers thrown in there as well, such as quarterback Kirk Cousins being given an 80 overall rating.


However, Vikings fans will be happy to know it was an even split between offensive and defensive players in the top-10 highest-rated players on the roster. Here’s who made the cut.
