Best Offensive Playbooks in Madden NFL 23

Published on: 11/07/2022
By: PlayStation

Finding it hard to get your offense going in Madden 23? Try using different playbooks. Each NFL team uses a different playbook. You can apply them to other teams or use them with your Madden Ultimate Team.

Certain playbooks focus on a specific game plan. For example, some center around throwing the ball while others establish the run. Finding a playbook that caters to your preferred playstyle will help you run your offense exactly how you prefer.

There are a few playbooks that are a cut above the rest. Here are the best offensive playbooks in Madden 23 for each playstyle.

Best Playbook for Passing

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs’ playbook is easily the best choice for running an air raid offense. A lot of passing plays are run from the Shotgun formation. It gives the QB an extra split second of time in the pocket and more freedom to improvise in the backfield.

Kansas City’s offense works mostly from the Shotgun. In fact, they have 19 different packages under the formation. Receivers are either spread out wide, bunched in close near the offensive line, or with three on one side of the field in Trips. 

What separates KC from other pass-heavy playbooks is versatility. Apart from the traditional Singleback and Shotgun, the Chiefs use an I-Form, Strong I, Weak I, and a bunch Pistol formation. These extra options give you more room for creativity and make it easier to switch to a balanced offense when necessary.

Best Playbook for Running 

Tennessee Titans

The Titans operate most of their offense through star running back Derrick Henry. So it’s no surprise they have one of the most run-heavy playbooks in Madden 23. 

Tennessee runs most of its plays from the Singleback or I-Form formations. There are plenty of bunch and dual tight end packages that set receivers as extra blockers near the line. The classic I-Form uses a fullback as a lead blocker for the running back. 

A very exclusive feature makes Tennessee’s playbook stand out. The Titans are the only team to include the Wildcat formation in their default playbook. These plays snap the ball straight to the running back and give him the option of handing it off to another player or taking off into the open field himself.

Best Playbook for Balance

 Buffalo Bills

Buffalo’s playbook is built for balance. While fairly simple, it’s also very robust. It features the four common formations: Singleback, I-Form, Shotgun, Strong I, and Weak I. 

The Bills’ playbook places no emphasis on the run or pass. Most plays are straightforward and will look familiar to players who have played Madden games over several years. There is also a healthy mix of both Singleback and Shotgun packages, whereas most teams usually favor one or the other. Buffalo’s playbook has all the essential plays to support any kind of offensive style.

Rounding out the Bills’ playbook is the inclusion of the Pistol formation. However, their version lines receivers further out wide. This allows players to use the Pistol like an additional Singleback package with the extra element of misdirection.

Best Playbook for RPO and Play Action

Baltimore Ravens

Plays that involve trickery and misdirection can yield big rewards. In today’s NFL, the Run-Pass Option (RPO) is one of the toughest plays to defend. It allows the QB to run the appropriate play in real-time after the snap depending on the defense being played.

No team runs the RPO better than the Baltimore Ravens. With Lamar Jackson holding the reigns, the offense is predicated on giving the QB a ton of open running lanes. If your team has a dual-threat QB and good running backs, the Ravens’ playbook is perfect for keeping defenses confused. 

Baltimore’s playbook uses an extensive Pistol formation with 11 different packages. This is where most RPO plays are called from. The Pistol is also great for Play Action, another way to catch defenses off-balance.  

Most Accessible Playbook

Los Angeles Rams

Some playbooks are beautiful in their simplicity. They reduce the headache of learning formations and packages while still giving you plenty of plays to succeed with. 

If you want an easy-to-learn playbook that also isn’t limited, look no further than the defending Super Bowl champions. The Rams only use two formations: Singleback and Shotgun. However, each has exactly 14 different packages for a fully-balanced offensive approach. 

Compared to other two-formation playbooks in Madden 23, the Rams’ has the widest array of plays available. It is perfect for running a simple, smooth game plan without having to sacrifice any quality for accessibility. 

Now put your skills to the test in Madden 23 PlayStation Tournaments and see how far you can go.
