It should come as no surprise that the top-rated teams are the ones that made it furthest in last year’s playoffs, but even for the New England Patriots, a 93 rating is impressive.

The Buffalo Bills may want to think twice about their rebuild, as they already have the 12th-best team in Madden. Meanwhile, the Houston Texans are left wondering if they truly were the AFC South champions in 2016.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t getting the love that social media wants to give them after adding DeSean Jackson, O.J. Howard, and Chris Godwin to the offense; the ninth-ranked Tennessee Titans may have been the ones to scoop up that hype instead.

While the order is a bit different, Madden and theScore agreed that the Cincinnati Bengals, Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Rams, and New York Jets make up the seven worst teams in the NFL entering the season.
