After impressive Week 1 performances, several Denver Broncos saw their Madden NFL 13 video game ratings jump on Thursday. The Broncos defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-19 on Sunday and EA Sports took note of several players’ execution.
Cornerback Tray Porter, who was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week, saw the highest rating jump (+3), going from 80 to 83 overall while six other players—offensive lineman Manny Rameriz, linebacker Wesley Woodyard, offensive guard Zane Beadles, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, linebacker Von Miller and quarterback Peyton Manning—each saw +1 rating’s jump.
Meanwhile, safety Mike Adams went from 75 to 77 overall and defensive end Elvis Dumervil oddly dropped from 88 to 87 overall after failing to record a sack. While ultimately meaningless, seven Broncos played well enough in Week 1 for EA Sports to boost their Madden ratings, which is a positive development.
