EA Sports just earned itself a "99" in trolling.

On Tuesday, EA Sports announced that Seattle's Marshawn Lynch was the highest-rated running back in Madden 16. Lynch earned an overall rating of 96 thanks to some near-perfect scores in some of the attributes:

99 Stiff Arm + 98 Trucking = BEAST MODE @MoneyLynch is the top-rated RB in #Madden16. http://t.co/61GBG5fOIn http://t.co/xKRFDN6uol

Given that the running back's nickname is "Beast Mode," the Seahawks questioned one of the ratings:

Seattle Seahawks @Seahawks

C'mon @EAMaddenNFL! What's a Beast got to do to get a 99 TRUCKING? [http://t.co/fxhgqQcdYX] #Madden16 http://t.co/MWB3dYuPZ8

Bad move.

EA Sports Madden NFL responded with a tweet that quickly put an end to the argument, referencing Seattle's decision to throw at the goal line in the final minute of Super Bowl XLIX:

.@Seahawks one more of these probably could've helped... 😁 http://t.co/T1rHpVW5NF

There wasn't much the Seahawks could say to that:

Once again, EA Sports Madden NFL had a response:
