Honestly it’s hard to say… if I had to list a top 3 in no particular order it would probably be 49ers, Broncos, Seahawks.
The 49ers have arguably the best front 7 in the NFL; with a solid secondary… they are very well rounded and hard to do anything against. The Seahawks have a solid front 7 with the most physically dominate secondary in the NFL. It will be hard for people to use Johnson, Marshall, Thomas or any other large fast receivers against them. And Denver is probably the most versatile defense in the NFL. They are solid in the secondary and up front. With players such as Philips, Miller and Woodyard… they have unparalleled versatility. Which allows them to be one of the only teams, who can use a multi-D playbook. And transition between the formations seamlessly.
Personally I believe all 3 will be flat out dominate in Madden 25… it really comes down to the style of play people prefer.
I'm excited for a new look Dallas defense!

I agree... and the updates ratings are even better than last yeari still like the bears, if corectly usered
here the ovr. stats from madden 13
cb 1 tillmann 94 ovr
cb2 jennings 89 ovr
re peppers 97 ovr
le i think it will be wotton 77 ovr. but u have 2 other mid 70s u can throw in and 3 rookie de (maybe one makes a push)
dt1 melton 89 ovr. (?)
dt 2 pretty much the same situation like at le. a bunch of mid 70s so u can rotate
rolb briggs 92 ovr.
mlb d.j. williams 84 ovr.
lolb j. anderson 84 ovr.
ss wright 81 ovr.
fs the weakness of that defense: conte 76 ovr.(?) or hardin 71 ovr. but extremly athletic and fast, but im not the big fs/ballwahk user so i stay most of the time with conte and use hardin as the 3rd safety
good thing is:
all substitute cb, de, dt and lb are 73-76 ovr. players so u really have the possibility to change between formations and specific situationel needs without having a loss of qualitiy players ( the stars simply stay in. arround 75 ovr. players get substituted so i have always the fresh guy on the field).
i switch majority of the time betwenn...
4-3 over / over plus
CB Tillman - 95 (increase)
CB Jennings -90 (Increase)
RE Peppers - 90 - Took a drop, not sure why though
LE Wooten - 78 - Increased
DT Melton - 90 - increase
DT Paea - 77- same, but still has crazy blockshed and 98 power
ROLB Briggs - 95 - Increase
MLB D.J Williams - 80 - decrease, still fast and with 95 hit power (rookie Bostic will probably get nice boost with the first madden update since he's actually starting and impressive in preseason
LOLB James Anderson - 82? I forget, still decent. (Rookie Khaseem Green is pretty nasty on the game too)
SS Wright 81 ovr. - Same as last year, good speed, nice hit power
FS - Zbikoskwi 79/Conte 77 /Hardin 70 - weakness of team as you said - All 3 are fast 87, 88, 91 speed respectively and Hardin is still a "madden beast" with his speed and hit power combined.
I love the Ravens defense this year!
DL you've got so much depth with Ngata, Canty, Spears, McPhee, Cody and Brandon Williams
OLB you've got even more depth with Suggs, Dumervil, Upshaw, Simon and Mclellan if you want him there.
MLB you've got 3 solid guys in Smith, Brown, McClain and Mclellan for depth.
CB is the only real weakeness, but it's manageable if you put guys where they can succeed. I play Smith as my #1, Webb as my #2, and Graham in the slot and it works out nicely.
Then at safety you've got the fastest safety in the game in Michael Huff and Matt Elam has 88 speed and good coverage ratings as well.
The Ravens defense is ferocious this year.
Sna I agree with u completely that d line is crazy and Elam lays wood
