Everyone loves to throw deep all game and try to put 100 points on the scoreboard, but true Madden pros will tell you the way to win in Madden 13 is by running the ball and playing defense.  In today’s Free Tips Tuesday Episode, we looked into the San Francisco 49ers offensive playbook to find one of the best power running plays in the game.

Formation: I-Form Niners Heavy

Play: Off Tackle

Free Tip Tuesday - Madden 13 Power Run Game


  1. Motion your DT (offset fullback) to the right

When done correctly, you should get at least a 5 yard gain every play.  You can also flip the play to the other side so that your opponent doesn’t stack one side of the field with defenders.

  1. I just wish i ran the niners play book, does this work with the I-Form tight?

    1. I-form tight is a very nice running formation but it isn’t as effective as the i-form niner heavy formation.

  2. How about some chiefs plays, they need the help

  3. Can this formation be effective for Marchon of the seahawks

    1. Yes it will work well with the Seahawks

  4. Are there any Special Offensive plays in the 49ers playbook if so, Can you please send me some to the address above Thanks, fredgwill

  5. I have Madden Defensive Tatics and Madden Defensive Lockdown, do you have anymore defensive guides? Thanks…
