Madden 25 Houston Texans Team Breakdown

madden 25 texans

The Houston Texans are absolutely loaded in Madden 25.  This team, when used correctly, will be downright scary.  We have the full team breakdown below.

Team: Houston Texans

Offensive Strategy: Balanced.  The Texans have all sorts of weapons.  A good quarterback, a dominant WR, an elite RB, a steady backup RB, a dangerous rookie receiver, and a very good pass catching TE.  To say you have plenty of options on offense is the understatement of the century.  It would be naive for us to tell you how to use the Texans’ offense in Madden 25.

Defensive Strategy: 3-4 Blitz Heavy.  The Texans defense was a little questionable in last year’s Madden 13 game but it won’t be a problem this year.  Adding Ed Reed next to the already studlike Madden safety Daniel Manning will make the Texans have a top 3 safety combination.  When you pair that with the Texans feared pass rushers, you have a combination for dialing up some interesting blitzes.

Impact Players: QB Matt Schuab, HB Arian Foster, WR Andre Johnson, TE Owen Daniels, CB Johnathan Joseph, S Ed Reed, S Daniel Manning, DE JJ Watt, LB Brian Cushing, P Shane Lechler

Key Newcomers: S Ed Reed, WR Deandre Hopkins, P Shane Lechler, SS D.J. Swearinger

Biggest Strength: Playmakers.  You have around 10 big time playmakers on this team.  Most teams only have 2 or 3.  When playing as the Houston Texans in Madden 25, your opponent won’t be able to key on one guy or one facet of the game.  Play the Vikings and you just have to worry about shutting down Adrian Peterson.  Play the Packers and you just have to worry about stopping the passing game.  You can’t do that against this Texans team.

Biggest Weakness: I don’t see any glaring weaknesses on this team and that is incredibly rare when it comes to Madden NFL.  They are the complete package.

Rating: Elite.  The Texans will be a top 3 team in this year’s Madden game.

  1. If you playing with the patriots how do you shut it down

    1. You’re best bet is to try to get a few turnovers and be efficient on offense

    2. With that D? I hope your a good decision maker when It comes to passing.

  2. Madden-school not to be critical but you say the full team breakdown I think you should introduce special teams on these breakdowns. Things such as kicker, punter, kick/punt return.

  3. Texans super bowl bound. Madden 25 demo on Xbox 360 when?

  4. i see the wr core as a weakness. in m13 i played the run on every first down and useually forced them into a 2nd or 3rd and long. in that case i always doubled up andre and took the rest 1 on 1. most of the time it worked. give it a try

    1. Don’t forget about rookie DeAndre Hopkins out of Clemson. He is going to add an additional threat.

      1. Yea he should be a great addition to the Texans in Madden 25 as well

  5. As you have correctly highlighted there’s a lot which is good with the Texans but you have neglected the issue of their cap space and expiring contracts. Whoever plays as them long term will have some interesting decisions to make.
