Tyrann Mathieu thought Texans’ Deshaun Watson’s Madden 20 rating wasn’t fair
The Kansas City Chiefs didn’t waste any time this offseason and signed Tyrann Mathieu in hopes to bolster their secondary. Even after Mathieu left the Houston Texans, he is still defending one of his former teammates.
Recently, EA Sports released their rating for this year’s Madden video game. Among the players who disliked the ratings, Mathieu thought Deshaun Watson’s Madden 20 rating wasn’t fair.
Ain’t no way Deshaun Watson a 82.
No wonder kids are playing fornite now.

The Chiefs safety was quick to defend his former quarterback, and he may have a valid point. Watson is rated an 82 overall in the game and is the 13th highest-rated quarterback in Madden 20.
The third-year quarterback is rated one overall behind Baker Mayfield who has only played one season in the NFL. Mayfield is going to be a talented quarterback in the league but is he better than Watson already? That’s tough to say.
In just two seasons with the Texans, Watson’s numbers speak for themselves. The Texans franchise quarterback has 5,864 passing yards, 45 touchdowns, 17 interceptions, 820 rushing yards, and seven rushing touchdowns.
Watson has also helped lead the Texans to a 14-8 record in his 22 starts and a playoff bid in 2018. In his third season, Watson could be in for his best season in his career in the NFL. The duo of Watson and DeAndre Hopkins has been remarkable over the past two seasons.
The people who decided the ratings for players for Madden 20 dropped the ball on a couple of players—including Watson. Houston fans will probably continue playing Fortnite (as Mathieu alluded to) until Watson’s overall improves.
