After winning Super Bowl LII, Nick Foles becomes the highest-rated player in Madden 18's Ultimate Team
Many sports fans were shocked when the Philadelphia Eagles took down the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, Feb. 4.
The Eagles won 41-33, and were led by quarterback Nick Foles, who was named the Super Bowl MVP after throwing for 373 yards and three touchdowns—and he even contributed a receiving touchdown, too.
Foles is being rewarded for his play by earning a 99-rating card in Madden 18's Ultimate Team. Ultimate Team is a game mode where you try to build the best team possible by collecting cards of NFL players—and now, Foles is the highest-rated card in Madden 18's Ultimate Team.
That's right, Foles is the not only the No. 1 quarterback in MUT, but also the best overall player currently in the game mode. This is pretty remarkable for a backup QB who was previously a 75-rating, even if he just won the biggest game in professional football.
Although many fans might be outraged that Foles has a higher rating than five-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady—who threw for 505 yards and three touchdowns last Sunday—it appears that this 99-rating card has become a tradition in MUT. Last year when the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, Brady also earned a 99-rating card—even though he probably already had a high-rated card because he's widely-considered the best QB in NFL history.
If you play Madden 18's Ultimate Team, you'll probably want to try to get your hands on this Foles card.
