You’re not the only one that’s ready for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs this weekend, as Madden 13 has a new roster update going live this weekend with 350+ transaction and player adjustments.

The upcoming Madden NFL 13 roster update is the 19th of the season, and includes key upgrades for players like Seattle Seahawks’ RB Marshawn Lynch, who has steadily been moving up in rating throughout the season, and now sits at a comfortable 97 overall rating. Other players moved up too, like Houston’s Arian Foster (now 98 overall), and CB Jonathan Joseph (from 93 to 94). However it’s Lynch that remains one of the unexpected surprises this year.
