Madden NFL 12 Roster Updates, Week 12: Lions See Nine Increases

The Week 12 roster and ratings update for Madden NFL 12 went live for Xbox 360 and PS3 users early, in anticipation of Thanksgiving. The Detroit Lions have been getting steady increases on Madden this year, becoming a force to use online with strong receivers and a monster defensive line, though they started to stall out over the past couple weeks. Now, with a big win over the Carolina Panthers, the Lions see only one player decrease in rating.

Even better for them, there's twelve changes overall, and nine of those changes are increases in rating, some of them significant. The lone decrease goes to linebacker Justin Durant, who drops from an 83 overall to an 82 - a simple one-point decrease. The most significant increase in rating goes to running back Kevin Smith, who jumps from a 74 overall to 79, in just his second game since being signed off the street. Make the jump for a full list of changes for the Lions.
