Unlike Celebrate, Showboat is more like humiliating your opponent. The player you control will perform certain moves similar to dance steps before hitting the end zone. Here’s how to Showboat in Madden 23:

  • For PS Users – Press L2 + R2 + X when closing in on the line.
  • For Xbox Users – Press LT + RT + A when closing in on the line.

However, Showboat is a risky move as there is a chance that your opponent catches you down before a touchdown. If you plan on using a Showboat on your opponent, make sure you are close to the line and no defenders are closing in.
