Every NFL team’s home-field advantage


Home-field advantage makes all the difference in the NFL. There is a reason teams have consternation all week long before they play in venues such as Arrowhead Stadium, Lincoln Financial Field, and Lumen Field, regardless of what the team’s record may be.

EA Sports incorporated the concept of home-field advantage into their latest edition to the Madden NFL franchise. In Madden 22, there are home-field advantages for all 32 NFL teams.

Some create confusion. Some tucker out opponents quicker. Some pour on the momentum from a 55-gallon drum. Every venue presents its own challenge.

Here is a look at all of the home-field advantages in the upcoming Madden installment.
