Every championship-level NFL team needs top-tier level play out of their starting quarterbacks, with some teams having it much better than others when it comes to transcendent talent under center. Here are the best quarterbacks in the NFL heading into the 2015 season, according to the player ratings in Madden NFL 16.
5) Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts (OVR: 94)
Via EA Sports: "Luck boasts the same league-high 95 Throw on the Run as Big Ben (Roethlisberger), with comparable accuracy at 88 TAS/89 TAM/75 TAD. He also features 95 Throw Power and 92 Play Action."
T4) Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers (OVR: 95)
Via EA Sports: "Big Ben is tops among all QBs with 85 Strength and 95 Throw on the Run, which makes him tough to bring down. He adds 94 Throw Power to 87 TAS/90 TAM/73 TAD, and deceives with 92 Play Action."
T4) Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints (OVR: 95)
Via EA Sports: "Even without All-Pro Tight End Jimmy Graham, it’s tough to bet against Brees. He starts 2015 with 93 TAS/91 TAM/79 TAD, and also adds 87 Throw Power and 93 Play Action."
2) Tom Brady, New England Patriots (OVR: 97)
Via EA Sports: "Brady claims league-best marks with 96 TAS and 97 TAM. Brady threads the needle with 94 Throw Power, but lay off the deep ball with his 70 TAD."
1) Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers (OVR: 99)
Via EA Sports: "The NFL MVP is excellent at many things. Between his 95 Throw Power, 98 Play Action, and 88 Throw on the Run, Rodgers can beat you in or out of the pocket. He’s awfully accurate, too. His 80 TAD is tops in the league, and he also boasts 94 TAS/92 TAM."Back to the NFL Newsfeed
