With the NFL Playoffs kicking off this weekend EA Sports has introduced Playoff-related content to Ultimate Team in Madden NFL 17. The Predictor went live earlier in the week while these new additions include the ability to earn special Team Leader cards and turn in extras for special cards featuring players appearing in the Playoffs.
The Team Heroes for the month are gone and in their place are Playoff Team Leaders. Adding all 10 of a team’s Playoff Players to their respective set will unlock that Team Leader rated at 94 Overall: LeGarrette Blunt (NE), Marcus Peters (KC), Mike Mitchell (PIT), A.J. Bouye (HOU), Rodney Hudson (OAK), Jarvis Landry (MIA), Zack Martin (DAL), Vic Beasley (ATL), Jimmy Graham (SEA), Mike Daniels (GB), Eli Manning (NYG), DeAndre Levy (DET).
The Man of the Playoffs card is a 97 Overall Tom Brady. He’s earned by turning in all 12 Playoff Leader cards. You can also earn a Playoff Elite by completing a set with 40 Gold and 20 Silver items from non-Playoff teams. Each Playoff team also has a trade-in set with 20 Gold and 10 Silver cards in exchange for an Elite Playoff Player.
