Madden NFL 25 Roster Update: Week 9

We’ve reached the halfway point of the NFL season and the tightest division race comes to us from the much-maligned NFC East, where the last-place Giants trail the division-leading Cowboys by just two games.

Here are three of the biggest improvements from the Madden NFL 25 Week 9 roster update.

The Bengals have been looking for a solid #2 receiver across from superstar A.J. Green, and they might have found their guy in the second-year player out of Cal. Jones caught four touchdown passes in  Cincinnati’s 49-9 romp over the Jets, giving him six scores in his last three games and seven on the season. His OVR rating increases five points to 79.

A key cog in one of the NFL’s most underrated pass rushes (tied for fifth with 25 sacks), Quinn has already reached 10 sacks on the year after taking down the Seahawks’ Russell Wilson three times on Monday Night. Quinn’s OVR increases four points to 89, thanks in large part to a whopping seven-point increase in FNM.

KENNY STILLS, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS WR                                                              
The rookie out of Oklahoma is flashing the last couple weeks, and he had the biggest game of his young career in the Saints’ win over the Bills. Stills caught four passes for 129 yards and a TD, giving the Saints yet another threat in the passing game. Stills’ OVR is up three points to 73, and his AWR received a six-point boost.
