As previously mentioned, Louisiana is the state with the most interest in Madden NFL 23, with the Minesweeper-Challenge noting that the New Orleans Saints in the game have a team rating of 83 and a top safety rating of Tyrann Mathieu, who has an overall rating of 94. Louisiana is followed by Delaware, Alabama, Ohio, Mississippi, Maryland, West Virginia, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Iowa.
