Outside of throwing passes with pinpoint accuracy, the primary role of a quarterback in Madden 23 is to read the defense. While some of the better QBs in the league can make plays happen after the ball has snapped, the truly elite QBs switch things up at the last second before the play has commenced. More commonly referred to as an audible.

In this guide, we will break down everything you need to know about how to audible in Madden 23.

How to Audible in Madden 23

In Madden 23, teams are constantly strategizing to come up with new ways to beat their opponent. Which means they there’s a good chance that every team has some sort of answer for the play you’re about to run. While not always the case, chances are you will encounter at least a few situations where the defense (or the offense) has completely read the play before it happens.

  • Quick Audible – Press X (for Xbox) or Square (for PlayStation) to bring up the audible menu prior to the snap. Then, flick the Right Analog Stick in any of the 4 directions to switch plays.
  • Offense – On the D-Pad, press Up to Quick Pass, Down to Run, Left for Play Action Pass or Right for Standard Pass.
  • Defense – On the D-Pad, press Up for Cover 2 Man, Down to Blitz, Left for Cover 3 and Right for Tampa 2.
