AFC South Rankings Are Here. Pick the Colts.

AFC South ratings are out. Avoid this division.

EA's slow reveal of its Madden 16 ratings continues. Being the dead of summer, we'll take any bone they'll throw us. The most recent reveal gives us the AFC South, the conference with perhaps the least intrigue in all of football.

Indianapolis Colts: 87 Overall

Notable Players

Offense (OVR)

  • Andrew Luck QB (94)
  • T.Y. Hilton WR (89)
  • Andre Johnson WR (86)

Defense (OVR)

  • Vontae Davis CB (95)
  • Robert Mathis (87)

The Skinny

Probably your easiest route to the playoffs. The best team in a bad division with a quarterback who’s rated 16 points higher than the next guy. Just hope they don’t modify player stats for the playoffs.

Houston Texans: 79 Overall

Notable Players:

Offense (OVR)

  • Arian Foster RB (91)
  • Deandre Hopkins WR (88)
  • Ryan Mallet QB (74)

Defense (OVR)

  • JJ Watt RE (99)
  • Vince Wilfork DT (91)
  • Jadeveon Clowney ROLB (78)

The Skinny

For those of you enamored with Madden’s new defensive controls, Watt and new addition Vince Wilfork (he has to retire at some point, right?) will make for a nasty defensive line combination. Get JaDeveon Clowney some experience and you’ll be well on your way to winning every game 3-0.

Jacksonville Jaguars: 73 Overall 

Notable Players:

Offense (OVR)

  • Julius Thomas TE (89)
  • Blake Bortles QB (74)
  • TJ Yeldon RB (73)

Defense (OVR)

  • Sen’Derrick Marks DT (87)
  • Dante Fowler RE (79)

The Skinny

If you hate football, this is your team. Take Blake Bortles on year two of a doomed journey with a terrible franchise. Enjoy Dante Fowler doing all the things he literally can’t do with his torn ACL. Thank god owner mode lets you move teams.

Tennessee Titans: 72 Overall

Notable Players

Offense (OVR)

  • Delanie Walker TE (87)
  • Marcus Mariota QB (78)

Defense (OVR)

  • Brian Orakpo ROLB (87)
  • Da'Norris Searcy SS (87)
  • Jason McCourty CB (86)

The Skinny

If you like football, but can't stand enjoying it, take on this tire fire of a project. Play as rookie Marcus Marriota and use his 88 speed to avoid being sacked 5 times a game. He’s the only bright spot on a team that hasn’t been relevant since last century. This is a good way to end up with a controller through your TV.
