Patrick Peterson ranked fourth-best corner in Madden 17

Jul 30, 2016, 10:45 AM | Updated: 12:01 pm

Other than death and taxes, the one certain thing in life is a new Madden video game.

As the game’s release date on August 23 creeps up, the player ratings are a hot topic for many NFL fans and players alike.

Recent released ratings show that the Arizona Cardinals’ Patrick Peterson received a 91 rating overall, listing him as the fourth-best corner back in the game. Peterson tied with the New York Jets’ Darrelle Revis, but fell short of the Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman (92), the Denver Broncos’ Chris Harris (93) and the Washington Redskins’ newest offseason pick up Josh Norman (94).

Apparently the creators of Madden did not take into account that multiple NFL analysts have tabbed Peterson as the best corner of the game, and even New York Giants’ super receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. has praised the Cardinal for his covering abilities.

Looks like Peterson might have some added bulletin board material for the upcoming season.
