Madden 13 team ratings: No respect for the Bengals...


I know it's just a video game, but the rumored rating for the Bengals in the newest edition of Madden is surprisingly low. With any luck these rankings aren't accurate, otherwise I doubt I'll be buying the game this year. For full team ratings click the jump:

Team Rating
New England Patriots 86
Green Bay Packers 86
Pittsburgh Steelers 85
Philadelphia Eagles 84
New York Giants 84
San Francisco 49ers 81
Chicago Bears 81
Atlanta Falcons 81
Baltimore Ravens 80
Dallas Cowboys 79
New York Jets 79
Washington Redskins 78
New Orleans Saints 78
Houston Texans 78
San Diego Chargers 78
Detroit Lions 77
Carolina Panthers 76
Denver Broncos 76
Kansas City Chiefs 76
Arizona Cardinals 75
Cincinnati Bengals 74
Buffalo Bills 74
Seattle Seahawks 73
Tennessee Titans 72
St. Louis Rams 71
Minnesota Vikings 71
Oakland Raiders 70
Jacksonville Jaguars 70
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 69
Miami Dolphins 68
Cleveland Browns 67
Indianapolis Colts 66

As you can see, a rating of 74 puts us tied with the buffalo bills for 21st out of the 32 teams in the league. That seems incredibly disrespectful for a young team with a top five defense and one of the best young receiver/quarterback combos in the game, especially when we were a playoff team last season and are expected to be a contender again this upcoming season. I just can't fathom how the Cardinals, Chiefs, Redskins and Jets could all be rated high than the Bengals based on the off-season and last seasons performances.

(As a side note, I also would have expected the Titans and Seahawks to be rated a little higher)

I understand that we generally don't get a lot of respect from the national media, but this just seems a little below the belt. What do you guys think?
