Well, every game under EA sports I can think of were made by one of EA's many developement studios across North America. I know they've purchased alot of Independant Studios such as Westwood and the studio that made the Sims, which makes them technically EA.
Occationally you get games like Star Wars the Old Republic which was co published by EA and LucasArts but developed by Bioware (which I believe is now owned by EA as well), but that's an exception more than a rule. There probably was a point in the early EA years where they dealt with 3rd party devs, but looking at their relevant franchises most if not all were made in-house.
