    Madden Night net 17 loves the Patriots and Panthers, hates the Broncos

  • Night net The Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots will enter the 2016 season as the best teams in the Night net, according to Madden Night net 17. EA Sports has revealed the Overall Ratings for all 32 teams, as well as how they stack up on both offense and defense.The best offensive team in the league is the Pittsburgh Steelers, who in real life would feature an incredibly potent attack if their players could keep from getting suspended. In the video game, they're all on the base roster, so the suspensions are not factors in the ratings. Defensively, the Kansas City Chiefs rate the highest, rather than the Broncos or Seahawks. The Super Bowl Champs may feel slighted by the way EA Sports evaluated their team. The loss of Peyton Manning, who had an awful season but was still rated highly by the video game, from an already lethargic offensive attack resulted in the Broncos having an offense worse than all teams in the league besides the Bears.MORE MADDEN RATINGS: QBs | WRs | RBs | TEs | LBs | Rookies Broncos are tied with Titans rated 82 in Madden Night net 17.
