Is Tom Brady still a top-five NFL quarterback?
EA Sports' "Madden NFL 21" says he is, but just barely. The popular football video game franchise released its overall ratings for its top 10 QBs, and Brady ranked fifth with a solid 90.
That puts Brady -- now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer -- ahead of Aaron Rodgers (89), Matt Ryan (87), Deshaun Watson (86), Dak Prescott (84), and Carson Wentz (84). The four QBs rated higher than him are Patrick Mahomes (99), Russell Wilson (97), Lamar Jackson (94), and Drew Brees (93).

All things considered, that's a pretty fair top 10.
We'll just have to wait a bit longer to find out how Madden rates Patriots quarterbacks Cam Newton and Jarrett Stidham this year. But Pats fans should be hyped up about Stephon Gilmore's rating, as the All-Pro cornerback reportedly will join the exclusive "99 Club."
Madden 21 is set to be released Aug. 25.
