While there are quite a lot of moves when you want to dodge your opponents and head to the end zone, Stiff Arm seems pretty much in a different league. Although the move does has a time factor that can only be perfected through practice. Here’s how to Stiff Arm opponents in Madden 23:

  • For PC Users – Press E when the opponents close in on you.
  • For PS Users – Press X when the opponents close in on you.
  • For Xbox Users – Press A when the opponents close in on you.
