Madden NFL 25 Roster Update: Conference Championships

Posted January 24th at 12:00am.

And then there were two. The Broncos handled the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, while the Seahawks withstood a late 49ers rally to win their second NFC Championship. Both top seeds advanced to the Super Bowl for the first time since the Saints and Colts matched up in 2010.

Here are three of the biggest changes from the Madden NFL 25 Conference Championship roster update. This update covers both the Divisional Playoffs and Conference Championships.

Sherman made perhaps the biggest play of the entire 2013-14 season in Sunday’s NFC Championship win, deflecting a pass in the end zone that led to the game-clinching interception. For his efforts, he receives a one-point increase and joins the prestigious 99 OVR club. He also picked up a whopping six-point boost in his toughness (TGH) rating.

If Sherman’s tipped pass wasn’t the biggest of the season, consider Kearse’s incredible touchdown reception in the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship. With the Seahawks going for it on fourth and seven, Russell Wilson found Kearse for a go-ahead 35-yard score over the middle of the field. Kearse’s OVR gets a two-point jump to 76, and his Spectacular Catch rating (SPC) is up five points to 91 after the stellar grab.

The Broncos’ much-maligned defense has been dominant in playoff wins over the Chargers and Patriots, and Knighton is a big reason why. He helped shut down New England’s ground attack, and also made a huge play by sacking Tom Brady on fourth down with the ball deep in Broncos territory. Knighton’s OVR increases three points to 87, and his TAK is up seven big points to 89.
