The Week 12 roster and ratings update for Madden NFL 12 is live early for PS3 and Xbox 360 users, in anticipation of Thanksgiving. With it comes a list of changes for the Minnesota Vikings, which total ten changes in all, including five changes to overall ratings. Minnesota is coming off a bad loss to the Oakland Raiders, so two of those changes are decreases, but they do come out ahead with three players going up in rating.
Perhaps the weirdest change in this update is defensive lineman Jared Allen getting a decrease - dropping from a 98 overall to 97. Allen has been having one of his best seasons yet, has a below-average game, and suddenly is dropping? It seems like an odd punishment, especially with quarterback Christian Ponder getting an increase after throwing more interceptions than touchdowns for the second straight game. Either way, make the jump for a full list of changes for the Minnesota Vikings.
QB Christian Ponder 76 to 77
OL Charlie Johnson 77 to 79
LB Chad Greenway 90 to 91
DL Jared Allen 98 to 97
OL Steve Hutchinson 88 to 87
