Typically, numbers go down if players do not complete the season.
However, the former Louisville standout had comparable completion percentages (identical at 64.4) and passing yards (2,757 to 2,882) from 2020 and 2021.
But his rushing yards dropped from 1,005 to 767.
Therefore, could that be the reason behind the significant drop in Jackson’s Madden NFL 23 rating?

NFL insider Dov Kleiman tweeted, “@Lj_era8 finished Madden 22 with an overall rating of 90 – so this is a strange drop.”
He quoted his earlier tweet wherein Jackson is ranked eighth among the top quarterbacks with an 87 rating.
Jackson’s ranking is a blatant disrespect to his impact on the Ravens.
Yes, he is unlike the typical pocket passer but he has a profound effect on their games.
Last season is a great example of his impact because the Ravens did not win again when he was sidelined by injury.
When he’s playing, he affects the game in a lot of ways because of his mobility.
Therefore, it would be better for EA Sports to retain his 90 rating from last season.
That Jackson dropped three points in a span of one offseason is beyond explanation.
Jackson Still Waiting For His Big Payday
He will use the Madden rating as a chip on his shoulder to have a great 2022 campaign.
But what would make it better is if he gets a contract extension he deserves.
Kyler Murray‘s new deal lent him a hand in having a value to negotiate.
If his Madden NFL 23 rating doesn’t go up, he should at least get the contract he deserves based on the market’s existing valuation.
