It's almost time to pick up the controllers again.

In anticipation of the release of Madden 20 on Aug. 2, EA Sports revealed all teams and players ratings for the game on Monday.

Here's a look at the top five teams based on overall ratings:

Team Overall Defense Rating Offense Rating
Eagles 89 84 87
Cowboys 88 86 86
Saints 87 82 92
Patriots 87 84 91
Packers 87 84 89

And here are the bottom five teams:

Team Overall Defense Rating Offense Rating
Dolphins 74 72 69
Giants 77 72 75
Bills 78 80 71
Buccaneers 78 74 76
Cardinals 78 80 73
Jets 78 80 73

On the player side, DeAndre Hopkins, Aaron Donald, Bobby Wagner, and Khalil Mack were all awarded a 99 overall rating.

Here are the top five players in every position group:

Quarterbacks

Player Team Rating
Patrick Mahomes Chiefs 97
Tom Brady Patriots 96
Philip Rivers Chargers 94
Drew Brees Saints 92
Andrew Luck Colts 92

To the surprise of some, Carson Wentz was given a rating of only 82, placing him behind fellow QBs Baker Mayfield and Jared Goff. Aaron Rodgers ranks seventh among quarterbacks with a rating of 90.

Running backs

Player Team Rating
Todd Gurley Rams 97
Ezekiel Elliott Cowboys 94
Le'Veon Bell Jets 92
Melvin Gordon Chargers 92
Saquon Barkley Giants 91
Christian McCaffrey Panthers 91

Kareem Hunt and Alvin Kamara just missed the top five with ratings of 90 apiece. If you're looking to break ankles, Tarik Cohen has an elusiveness rating of 92.

Wide receivers

Player Team Rating
DeAndre Hopkins Texans 99
Antonio Brown Raiders 98
Julio Jones Falcons 98
Odell Beckham Jr. Browns 96
Michael Thomas Saints 95

Tyreek Hill holds an overall rating of 94, placing him sixth among receivers. However, he's the fastest player in the game with a speed rating of 99. Marquise Goodwin, who recently won the 40 Yards of Gold tournament, has a speed rating of 96.

Tight ends

Player Team Rating
Travis Kelce Chiefs 96
Zach Ertz Eagles 93
Delanie Walker Titans 92
George Kittle 49ers 90
Grego Olsen Panthers 89

After missing the entirety of last season, Walker ranks third among tight ends. Jason Witten also missed 2018 - albeit for a very different reason - and was given a rating of 83.

Offensive linemen

Player Team Rating
David Bakhtiari Packers 97
Zack Martin Cowboys 96
Trent Williams Redskins 95
Travis Frederick Cowboys 94
Jason Kelce Eagles 94
Tyron Smith Cowboys 94

Handling Zeke behind a Cowboys offensive line that boasts three players with ratings of 94-plus is a surefire way to dominate the run game.

Edge rushers

Player Team Rating
Khalil Mack Bears 99
Von Miller Broncos 97
J.J. Watt Texans 97
Calais Campbell Jaguars 92
Jadeveon Clowney Texans 92

The Texans were tabbed as having the best push-rushing group, but the Chargers' duo of Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram did not go unnoticed. They are rated 97 and 94, respectively, in terms of their finesse moves against offensive linemen.

Also, DeMarcus Lawrence had quite the reaction to his 89 overall rating.

Defensive tackles

Player Team Ratings
Aaron Donald Rams 99
Fletcher Cox Eagles 96
Damon Harrison Lions 95
Michael Pierce Ravens 92
Geno Atkins Bengals 91

There was never any doubt that Donald would lead this group after totaling 20.5 sacks last year. He also leads all players with a 99 strength rating, although his former teammate Ndamukong Suh comes close with a strength rating of 98.

Linebackers

Player Team Rating
Bobby Wagner Seahawks 99
Luke Kuechly Panthers 98
Lavonte David Buccaneers 90
Deion Jones Falcons 90
Telvin Smith Jaguars 88

If you're looking to utilize the hit stick, Wagner is your man. He has a league-high hit power rating of 98. Last year's league-leader in tackles, Darius Leonard, received a rating of 84.

Cornerbacks

Player Team Rating
Jalen Ramsey Jaguars 96
Stephon Gilmore Patriots 94
Richard Sherman 49ers 93
Patrick Peterson Cardinals 92
Byron Jones Cowboys 91

Sherman is 31 years old, but he's still near the top of the ratings. The Madden 15 cover athlete also holds the highest rating for zone coverage with 97, while Ramsey holds the highest for man coverage with the same rating.

Leading the league in interceptions last year apparently did Xavien Howard no favors, as he was given a rating of only 83.

Safeties

Player Team Ratings
Earl Thomas Ravens 95
Harrison Smith Vikings 94
Malcolm Jenkins Eagles 92
Eddie Jackson Bears 91
Jamal Adams Jets 90

Landon Collins may be the highest-paid safety in the league but he's ranked 19th among all safeties (83 overall).

Kickers

Player Team Rating
Justin Tucker Ravens 87
Robbie Gould 49ers 85
Aldrick Rosas Giants 84
Stephen Gostkowski Patriots 80
Greg Zuerlein Rams 80

If you're going to attempt any 60-yard field goals, make sure you've got Graham Gano taking them. His kick power rating of 99 leads the league.
