On late Thursday morning, Steelers’ safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was revealed as the 10th best safety in this year’s edition of Madden with a rating of 89.
To say that people were perplexed by the ranking would be a considerable understatement. Comment sections throughout the game’s social account called foul and questioned why Fitzpatrick’s rating was below some of his counterparts inside of the top-10.
It did not take long for the Steelers’ account to chime in on the two-time Pro Bowler’s rating.

Luckily for Fitzpatrick, Madden adjusts ratings as the season goes on, giving him a chance to prove those that gave him the rating wrong.
