The Green Bay Packers are a top 5 team in Madden NFL 15.  Although they didn’t make too many offseason moves, the guys they did add will make an immediate impact on the virtual gridiron right away.

We have the full breakdown below.

Team: Green Bay Packers

Offensive Strategy: Air it out.  The Packers have an elite to offense in Madden 15.   Spread the ball around to your receivers and mix in a little Eddie Lacy every now and then.  It really shouldn’t be too hard to move the ball however you want with the Packers.

Defensive Strategy: Attacking 3-4.  The key to defense in Madden is turnovers and sacks.  The Packers defense is built to do both of those things in Madden 15.  Make sure to pressure the quarterback which should get you a few sacks and interceptions every game.

Strengths: Offense.  The Packers have one of the best Madden quarterbacks in the game.  Eddie Lacy is just about automatic on 3rd and short and the Packers have all kinds of options at receiver.

Weaknesses: The Packers really don’t have any glaring weaknesses but if one had to be chosen, it would be tight end.  Losing Jermichael Finley is a significant loss for Madden 15.  However, don’t expect the offense to slow down any.

Impact Players: QB Aaron Rodgers, HB Eddie Lacy, WR Jordy Nelson, WR Randall Cobb, DT B.J. Raji, LOLB Julius Peppers, ROLB Clay Matthews, MLB A.J. Hawk, CB Sam Shields, CB Tramon Williams, S Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix

Key Newcomers: S Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix, WR Davante Adams, DT Khyri Thornton, TE Richard Rodgers, LOLB Julius Peppers

Additional Remarks: The Packers are an elite team in Madden NFL 15.  The addition of Julius Peppers and a strong draft make this team incredibly hard to stop.
