Vikings Get A Boost In Madden's Latest UpdateOwen Good10/08/10 9:00pmFiled to: RatingsMadden nfl 11Madden NFLNflSportsEA SportsFootball67EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkInterestingly, the trade sending Randy Moss to Minnesota boosted the Vikings' overall rating in Madden NFL 11 without diminishing the New England Patriots'. Not that this is necessarily a zero-sum game, but what gives there?New England, with no game this week, is now a receiving corps headlined by Wes Welker and Brandon Tate, with Alge Crumpler at tight end. Basically zero serious deep threat, in real life anyway. At launch, the Patriots were an 86-rated team. They since improved to 87 and remain that, post-Moss. Minnesota, which slid from 88 at launch to 85 last week, goes back to 87 overall with Moss' arrival. Moss also gets his old No. 84 jersey back.
