The accolades just keep coming for Adrian Peterson. MVP Award. ESPYs. #1 spot in the NFL Network Top 100. Wheaties box. And his latest honor? Being the top-rated running back in the newest installment of the Madden video game franchise. In the upcoming Madden 25 game, Adrian will sport an overall rating of 99. Keep in mind that 100 doesn’t exist on Madden. So a 99 rating is as good as it gets. A 99 rating means you are the elite of the elite.
Adrian is one of only two offensive players to score a coveted 99 in Madden 25. The other? Calvin Johnson. That’s it, that’s the list. AD and Megatron. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady only get a 98. Rob Gronkowski only gets a 98. Hear that Adrian? Video game geeks really love you. So do fantasy football nerds.
Adrian makes all the geeks cream their shorts, basically. And with good reason. He is indisputably the Man. And by the way, if you’re a non-Viking fan who is sick of Viking fans gushing over Adrian Peterson? Tough. We’re going to keep gushing about him. CAUSE HE’S PRETTY MUCH ALL WE’VE GOT.
