Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson scored a loss, too. He began the game at 94, but improved to 95 in the week 7 update, but is now at 92 overall.

Peyton Manning, one of the greatest quarterbacks of NFL history -- and one of the best audible-callers in NFL history. He'll be remembered for his amazing passing ability, defying defenses, and the two teams he led to Super Bowl victories. However, it turns out that Manning only wanted to be an Madden Ratings Adjuster, and he's ready to take down his rival, Tom Brady, if EA let him.

Brady led The Buccaneers between 7-9 and a Super Bowl the following year and the Broncos went from 8-8 in 2011 to two Super Bowl appearances and one win under Manning.
