Madden 25 Buffalo Bills Team Breakdown

madden 25 bills

The Buffalo Bills have traditionally been lower tier Madden team.  They have made some strides into the middle group of teams that aren’t necessarily bad but aren’t yet considered a great team in Madden 25.  We have the full analysis below.

Team: Buffalo Bills

Offensive Strategy: Read Option/Vertical Game.  By adding a quarterback to their Madden 25 team, the Bills took a giant step forward.  We don’t yet know how good E.J. Manuel will be but first round rookie quarterbacks usually get the benefit of the doubt in ratings.  C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are both dangerous running backs and the wide receivers are solid.

Defensive Strategy: Get After The Quarterback.  Mario Williams is an absolute beast in Madden.  Combine that with Manny Lawson and his size/speed combination and you have 2 of those most feared pass rushers in the game.  The rest of the defense is solid but not spectacular.

Impact Players: QB E.J. Manuel, HB C.J. Spiller, HB Fred Jackson, WR Stevie Johnson, DT Marcell Dareus, LB Manny Lawson, CB Stephon Gilmore, S Jarius Bird

Key Newcomers: QB E.J. Manuel, WR Robert Woods, WR Da’Rick Rodgers, WR Marquise Goodwin, LB Manny Lawson

Biggest Strength: Playmakers.  The Bills are loaded with established playmakers on offense like C.J. Spiller and Stevie Johnson.  They also added some potential playmakers on offense in their rookie QB and receivers.  On defense, Mario Williams is a big time playmaker.

Biggest Weakness: Linebackers.  There really isn’t any linebacker on the Bills roster that jumps out as an impact linebacker when it comes to Madden 25.

Rating: Average. Traditionally, this team would be rated poorly.  This “average” rating comes with the disclaimer that it could easily go up to “Good” a few weeks into the NFL season.

  1. Our offense is young but explosive. Our whole defensive line is great. Alex Carrington is going to be a beast Marcell Dareus and Kyle Williams are all pro caliber And Mario Williams is amazing. Stephon Gilmore will prove to be one of the best corners in the NFL. You are completely forgetting about Jairus Byrd who is one of the best safetys in the league. Aaron Williams has had a great camp converting the strong safety .Ron Brooks and Leotis to Mc Calvin will be decent 2nd 3rd cornerbacks. Kiko Alonso and Bradham look to be pretty good linebackers. I think we have one of the best defenses in the NFL

    1. Good call on Jarius Bird. A lot of the guys you mentioned though aren’t proven yet so they won’t have very good ratings in Madden 25 when the came comes out.

      1. Why don’t you have Kyle Williams as an impact player? Our tight end Scott Chandler is also a proven possession receiver. And don’t forget TJ Graham he is having a great camp.

        1. We have Kyle Williams and Marcel Dareus proven players w good ratings on the inside. Mario Williams Manny Lawson and Jerry Hughes should provide a good pass rush. And we have a lot of talent and ball hawks in our secondary.

      2. You have Manny Lawson as an impact player instead of Mario Williams

  2. Forgot Mario Williams as impact player

  3. And what will Cj Spillers stats look like?

  4. Why does Madden 25 have the player positions different from the Buffalo Bills Depth Chart? Any news on any different defensive formations? We run a front similar to the Seahawks. A 3-4 with Mario Williams as a rushing linebacker. I feel like the guy who does player ratings could do a better job thoroughly investigating to come up with more accurate numbers.

    1. I think you are just saying all of this because you are a bills fan.

  5. the roster has mario williams labeled a lolb when he is a defensive end …why is that? anybody?
