Madden NFL 23 Cheats, Tips Strategy

Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include why it is important to identify the secondary coverage and why you should take advantage of the hit stick:

Make a Note of Successful Plays

Not every play you call will be successful the first time you try it, so it is recommended that you give them at least ten tries so that you can take into account mistakes and effectiveness against different types of plays. After continually trying the play a pattern will emerge, if it is an offensive play it will either reliably gain you decent yardage or continually get stopped by the defense. Once you discover the best plays for your team you can skip any 'recommended' plays you know don't work well and stick to what you know does. This goes for both offense and defensive plays.

Identify the Secondary Coverage

Look at how the defensive backs are lined up to identify whether the defense intends to play man or zone defense. If the defensive backs are lined up opposite the receiver at the line of scrimmage it's going to be man coverage so a play that has slants will enable the receiver to get open from the cornerback who will be dragging behind. If the defense is spread out evenly across the field the coverage is likely to be zone defense in which case you require a play that enables you to hit the receiver when they get to a spot in between the secondary areas the defensive backs are covering. If there is too much coverage in the secondary you will be able to get decent yardage by calling an audible at the line of scrimmage and dumping the ball off to a running back.

Switch to Coverage for Interceptions

Keep in mind that the AI-controlled cornerbacks in NFL Madden 23 are slow and not particularly good at catching and will be easily outplayed by any given receiver. To therefore prevent easy touchdowns switch to coverage the instant the ball is thrown by the quarterback and hold onto the right trigger of your controller to sprint. Then once in position, tap the top button of your controller (Triangle on PlayStation or Y on Xbox) to increase your chances of intercepting the ball.

Keep the Defense Guessing

Keep in mind that running and passing has been balanced out in NFL Madden 23, so you will no longer be able to have an elite running back who continuously grinds out chunks of yardage play after play behind decent offensive linemen. To be successful now regardless of whether you are playing against the computer or another player you will have to keep the defense guessing by having a mix of running and passing plays.

Use the Hit Stick to Create Turnovers

If you are playing defense you should look to use the hit stick to inflict brutal hits whenever possible in order to try and make the ball carrier fumble the ball, so your teammates have a chance to recover it for a turnover. To tackle an offensive player hard you need to tap the right thumbstick in their direction. Crunching tackles can also injure players and knock them out of the game which is something that can give you a significant advantage if you take out your opponent's best players.
