The Game Haus will be analyzing the player ratings from Madden 21 of every NFL team. Madden has a daunting task of rating all NFL players and their attributes. While they have the ability to correct some of these rankings with in-season roster updates, there are some issues with some of the initial rankings of players. Here are the Madden 21 questionable ratings: Philadelphia Eagles.
Lane Johnson– 89
Madden rating adjusters seem to have a dislike for right tackles, as Lane Johnson is an anchor at the position for the past half-decade and continued his dominant play in 2019. Johnson allowed only one sack last year and was a vital member of Philadelphia’s no. 1 ranked offensive line per ProFootballFocus. Johnson is one of the most disciplined players as well, only being called for one holding penalty in the past two seasons combined. Overall, Johnson is an elite blocker in both the run and pass and did not miss a beat in 2019, making his 89 overall rating quite surprising.
Adjusted Rating- 93
Carson Wentz– 84
Sports fans and experts across the country are split on Carson Wentz, with one side believing he is in the elite range of quarterbacks and has as much talent as any, and others see him as an underachieving, injury-prone player who is not a good leader. His 84 overall is good enough for ninth best, tied with division rival Dak Prescott. However, after last season Wentz deserves a minor rating boost. While leading the most injury-ridden offense and team in the NFL, Wentz still managed to eclipse 4,000 passing yards and 27 touchdowns while throwing less than 10 interceptions. With the season on the line, Wentz led an offense that featured receivers Rob Davis, Greg Ward and JJ Arcega-Whiteside past the Dallas Cowboys in a game that positioned them to win the division. Carson Wentz is a very good quarterback and has the potential to be among the elites in the NFL in the future.
Adjusted Rating- 87
Miles Sanders– 80
One of the best rookies in the NFL last season, Miles Sanders amassed more yards from scrimmage than anyone else in the 2019 draft class, including Josh Jacobs. He was one of the few members on the Philadelphia Eagles’ offense to be healthy by the season’s end and was a key to their late postseason push. In the Eagles’ biggest game of the year, Sanders was the most valuable player on the offense, eclipsing over 150 total yards and one of the only two touchdowns scored in the entire game against division rival Dallas Cowboys. Sanders only got better as the season went on, and expect another leap in play from the back in 2020.
Adjusted Rating- 82
