Who are the very best players in this year's Madden effort?

Well, publisher Electronic Arts has released the quarterback ratings for Madden NFL 16 and the top five should be expected.

Leading the way is Green Bay Packers superstar Aaron Rodgers, coming in with an overall rating of 99, and he's followed by the great Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, as he registers a 97 rating. Then comes Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints (95), Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers (95), and Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts (94). Interestingly, Luck knocks former Colts – and current Denver Broncos – QB Peyton Manning out of the top 5.
