Davante Adams is the newest member of the Madden 99 club and Aaron Rodgers was the one to deliver him with the news.
If we’ve learned anything in 2020, it’s that Green Bay Packers star receiver Davante Adams is unstoppable. Seriously, we knew Adams was one of the best wide receivers in the game, but he’s taken things to a whole new level this season.
With Aaron Rodgers throwing him the rock, the two have created magic throughout the season. That was once again the case in Week 16, with the two hooking up for three touchdowns.
Countless folks have taken notice of Adams’ tremendous play, including the team over at Madden. Adams now has a 99 ranking and Rodgers was the one to deliver him the news with a nice little surprise.

Aaron Rodgers surprising Davante with the Madden 99 was incredible
Talk about a sweet post-Christmas surprise for Adams. Judging from the look on his face, he had no idea this was coming. Even better, Rodgers did a fantastic job of delivering the news to his favorite wide receiver.
No one can argue Adams deserves that 99 ranking too. Thus far this season, he’s put up video game-type numbers, as he’s hauled in 109 balls for 1,328 yards and 17 touchdowns. His 17 scores is No. 1 among all receivers in the league, while his receptions and yards checks in at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.
With Rodgers and Adams playing so well, the Packers enter Week 17 holding the No. 1 seed in the NFC over both the Saints and the Seahawks. They could secure the coveted No. 1 spot and first-round bye with a win over the Bears, or a Saints and Seahawks loss.
Regardless of which seed they land, the Packers are looking like serious threats to win the Super Bowl in February. We’ll see if Rodgers and Adams can lead them back to the promised land.
