With only one game left in the NFL’s season, the team at EA SPORTS will be releasing a Super Bowl XLVII roster update for Madden NFL 13 tomorrow. The roster update will work for ‘Play Now’ or online matches, but will not be applied to the popular Connected Careers mode.
EA detailed that there are over 150 transactions that took place for the update, and detailed some of the biggest movers on the positive and negative side as well.
The biggest mover after Conference Championships Weekend was Baltimore HB Bernard Pierce, who received a four-point increase to 77 overall after rushing for 52 yards on just nine carries. Baltimore QB Joe Flacco continued his ascent into the league’s elite with another two point boost this week (now 91 overall), while Atlanta WR Julio Jones (92), San Francisco FB Bruce Miller (88), and New England OL Ryan Wendell (82) also received two point upgrades. San Francisco LB NaVorro Bowman went up one point as well to a 94 overall.
Some of the biggest movers on the negative side are Atlanta FB Mike Cox (from 74 to 72 overall), New England HB Danny Woodhead (from 81 to 79 overall), Atlanta DE John Abraham (from 94 to 92 overall), and San Francisco OL Mike Iupati (from 95 to 92 overall).
This update now puts EA SPORTS at 21 updates for the year which is the most we’ve ever seen for the Madden NFL series. To get the full list of updates that took place for this roster update, EA SPORTS has detailed them in full via their blog post.
