The best Madden 22 teams - the five highest rated sides in the game

Here are the best teams in Madden 22 so you're ready to take the crown in Exhibition and Franchise mode.

The Cleveland Browns players walk out of the tunnel

American Football is a complicated game, and whether you’re a dedicated fan or just simply someone who stays up to watch the Superbowl every year, it’s hard to keep track of the comings and goings of franchised teams. When you were hunting for glory in Madden 22’s Exhibition or Franchise modes though, you would have wanted to know what the best Madden 22 teams were.

Fortunately for you, it was relatively easy to find that information out in Madden 22 thanks to the game’s rating system. And, while the team stats spoke for themselves, the granular details hidden within each team’s roster were where you really needed to look if you were hoping for a deep NFL run.

The five best Madden 22 teams were:

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 92
  • Kansas City Chiefs – 89
  • Baltimore Ravens – 88
  • Buffalo Bills – 87
  • Cleveland Browns – 87

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Right at the top were the Super Bowl Champions – the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. These champions had an overall rating of 92 and were bolstered by not one, not two, not three, but four 90-rated plus players. Legendary quarterback Tom Brady led the pack with a 97 rating followed by Lavonte David (MLB), Mike Evans (WR), and Ali Marpet (LG), who were rated 93, 91, and 90 respectively.

If you’ve dreamed of lining up alongside Brady, then this was the team for you.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs might have lost the Superbowl final, but they were still looked at favourably in Madden 22 with an overall rating of 89. While its rating was not as good as the Buccaneers, you would have made a mistake to write the team off. That’s because the Chiefs had five 90+ rated players in their pack, led by none other than Patrick Mahomes (QB) and Travis Kelce (TE) who both had the maximum ratings of 99.

Tyreek Hill (WR) was close to that number with an overall rating of 98, followed by Tyrann Mathieu (SS) and Chris Jones (LE) at 95 and 90 respectively.

Baltimore Ravens

Despite being the Madden 21 cover star, Lamar Jackson was no longer the highest-rated player on the Baltimore Ravens team. However, that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing – it just meant that the Ravens had much more strength in depth.

Ronnie Stanley (LT) ruled the Ravens’ roost with a rating of 93, followed by Marlon Humphrey (CB) with a rating of 92. Jackson was third with a rating of 91, only just overcoming Calais Campbell’s (RE) rating of 90.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills had a bit of skill rating disparity among its ranks, with Stefon Diggs (WR) leading the charge with a 97 rating. After that, there was a five-point gap between the second-highest-rated player – Tre’Davious White (CB). These were the only 90+ rated players on the Bills team, but it did have a couple of hidden talents among its ranks too.

The Bills weren’t the best Madden 22 team, but if you played your cards right, they could do very well.

Cleveland Browns

Despite being only the fifth-best Madden 22 team, the Browns had a few aces up its sleeve. Myles Garret (RE) had a strong rating of 98, followed by Nick Chubb (HB) at 96. Odell Beckham Jr, who had a superstar X-Factor rating, fell just under the 90 rating, with a score of 89.

So there you have it, the best teams in Madden 22. All you needed then were the best Madden 22 team captains and you were well on your way to claiming the crown.
