Madden 25 Strategy: Run or Pass


The most common question I've received in Madden 25 is should I run or should I pass? There are plenty of strategies and tips for both the passing game and the running game. A lot of that comes down to the team you use and your playing style.

If you are using a team like the Broncos or the Packers in Madden NFL 25, then it makes much more sense to pass much more than you run. Quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers have very high ratings especially compared to the running backs on their team.

However, if you are using a team like the Vikings or Browns, you wouldn't dare throw the ball more than a few times per game. Both teams struggle at the quarterback position but have dominant running backs who can take over a game by themselves.

In general, my recommendation would be to run more than pass in Madden 25 as long as you don't have a strong preference one way or the other. The game's motto is "Run Free" not "Pass Free" and that idea is evident in the running game.

The offensive domination ebook for Madden 25 can help you out with both the running game and the passing game. If you are struggling at all on offense, it is the kind of all inclusive guide that will take your game to the next level.
