SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller now owns the highest possible rating, with a 99 overall on Madden NFL '16.

After the Denver Broncos' 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers, several players had their ratings adjusted by Electronic Arts.

Drops could have cost Panthers wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., who saw his rating go from 82 to 81. Defensive tackle Kawann Short's rating went from 96 to 95. Michael Oher and Mike Remmers watched their ratings slide to 76 and 75, respectively.

"On the other end of the spectrum, the big stage might have proven to be too much for the Carolina Panthers – particularly Ted Ginn Jr.," the EA Sports website said of Ginn. "He had a few key drops which stalled the offense, so this week he drops -1 OVR (81)."

The Panthers did have some positive swings in ratings with Jared Allen and Kony Ealy. Allen's rating increased by one, going to 83. Ealy is now rated at 80 overall.

The Broncos' Derek Wolfe is now a 91 overall. Running back C.J. Anderson is now an 85 overall. Sylvester Williams increased his rating to 77 overall.

"It's been decided," the EA Sports website said of Anderson. "The Denver Broncos are Super Bowl 50 Champions. While it was a defensive battle between both teams, the one bright spot for the Broncos' offense would have to been C.J. Anderson. His tough ball running and ball security earned him a +1 OVR (85)."

Miller is the top rated player in the game that participated in the Super Bowl. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton owns a 98 overall rating.
