EA Sports' Madden NFL 15 video is due to hit stores in a few weeks and today they published  the entire ratings for the Denver Broncos. Today, we'll take a look at each starter on the team.

The Broncos boast two of the highest-rated players at their positions in the league. Peyton Manning is the top-rated quarter (tied with Aaron Rodgers) at 98, while Matt Prater reins supreme among kickers at 95. Prater broke the NFL record for longest field goal in 2013.

The Broncos are the 2nd-highest rated team overall in Madden NFL 15 and first in the AFC. Their 90 puts them behind the Seattle Seahawks at 91, tied with the San Francisco 49ers for second place.

Here's what EA Sports had to say about the Denver Broncos --


How can the Broncos possibly improve an offense that shattered records in 2013? Five-time MVP is back as the top-rated quarterack in Madden 15. Despite the loss of Eric Decker in free agency, the Broncos still have an embarrasment of pass-catching riches in DeMaryius Thomas, Wes WelkerJulius Thomas and newly acquired Emmanuel Sanders. On the ground, the Broncos must get improvements from Montee Ball andRonnie Hillman to account for the loss of Knowshon Moreno.

After being shredded by Russell Wilson and Co. in Super Bowl XLVIII, the Broncos addressed the defensive side of the ball by bringing in veterans DeMarcus Ware (90 OVR) and Aqib Talib (90 OVR) to help shore up the pass rush and secondary respectively. In the trenches, defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (88 OVR) was dominant in Denver's run to the AFC Championship.

The Broncos are the highest rated team in the AFC in Madden 15. This really shouldn't come as a surprise considering that they were the best AFC team last season, and they added playmakers like Aqib Talib, DeMarcus Ward, T.J Ward and others this season.

The Broncos should be a fun team to play with in Madden when it's released August 26th!
