Las Vegas Raiders edge rusher Maxx Crosby has received a 94 edge rusher rating in the popular video game Madden 24. Madden released their official ratings this week with a top 100 list for each position group and role, including edge rusher.
A 94 rating ties Crosby for the fifth-highest-rated edge rusher in the game. He is tied with Buffalo Bills star Von Miller and Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro T.J. Watt. He is one of nine X-Factor edge rushers and one of 11 to receive a 90 overall or above.
Crosby is the anchor of the Raiders defense and has been so for four years since he was drafted in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The rankings reveal it, as he is one of the best edge rushers in the sport today.
Crosby is a 94 overall player, making him the third-highest-rated player on the Raiders and the highest-rated defensive player. Only Davante Adams (97) and Josh Jacobs (95) are higher.
Some other featured edge rushers include Aaron Donald, who ranks No. 1 overall as a member of the famed 99 club. Divisional opponent Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers ranks ninth on the edge rusher list with a 91 overall. Neither the Kansas City Chiefs nor the Denver Broncos have an edge rusher in the top 25.
But the Chargers do have more representation in the form of 24th-ranked and 85 overall edge rusher Khalil Mack.
There are seven players with X-Factor abilities in the game and eight players with a superstar tag in the top 25 of this skill group.
