Deshaun Watson reacts to his surprising ‘Madden 21’ rating


The disrespect is real.

EA Sports released their latest ratings for their new Madden NFL 21 video game, and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson found their rankings very funny, and not in a good way.

Patrick Mahomes was the top quarterback with a 99 overall rating. Russell Wilson had the second highest at 97. Lamar Jackson was a 94, and Drew Brees was a 93. Tom Brady rounded out the top-5 with a 90 overall rating.

Watson was No. 8 overall with an 86 rating.

The two-time Pro Bowler tagged the official Madden Twitter account and posted a facepalm emoji along with a crying-laughing emoji.

Watson’s numbers show he’s right up there with the best.

Take a look at some compelling stats below:

The good thing about Madden’s ratings are, they’re not set in stone. This is exactly the kind of thing Watson will use as motivation during the season.
