Aaron Rodgers was close behind at 96 OVR with Patrick Mahomes at 95 OVR, but Brady's ranking did not last.
Things began to fall apart when Brady was dropped one point in Week 4, and that moved him behind the freshly upgraded Patrick Mahomes.
He went through a three-week slide with Brady's Madden 23 ratings decreasing through Week 6, 7, and 8.
Finally, this later midseason shift in the Week 13 Madden 23 Roster Update has brought the Tom Brady Madden 23 rating to a meager 91 OVR.
