Madden NFL 24 has reintroduced the beloved Superstar mode, and with it, the Combine Interview challenge. This feature tests players on their football trivia knowledge through a series of questions. While it’s possible to have a successful career in the game even if you don’t ace the quiz, knowing the answers can give you an edge. Here’s a comprehensive guide on the Combine Interview in Madden 24’s Superstar mode.


Purpose Of The Combine Interview

After demonstrating your player’s physical prowess at the NFL Combine, the Combine Interview is your opportunity to showcase your mental grasp of the game. This segment is designed to assess your knowledge of NFL trivia.

How The Combine Interview Works

  1. Question Format: You will be presented with 10 NFL trivia questions.
  2. Time Limit: Each question comes with a brief timer, so you’ll need to think on your feet.
  3. Randomization: The set of 10 questions you receive is randomized. This means that if you retake the quiz, you might encounter some repeated questions, or you might be faced with an entirely new set.
  4. Impact on Draft Stock: Your performance in this interview can influence your draft stock. Answering correctly can boost your stock, while incorrect answers might lower it.

Retaking The Combine Interview

If you’re not satisfied with your performance, there’s a way to retake the quiz:

  1. Restarting the Quiz: To retake the quiz, you’ll need to close Madden 24 either during the interview or immediately after answering the final question. This will allow you to reload the game and start the quiz anew.
  2. Auto-save Feature: Be cautious! Once you move past the interview results screen, the game will auto-save, locking in your quiz results. If you wish to retake the quiz after this point, you’d have to delete your character and begin from scratch.

While the challenge might seem daunting, especially with the timer ticking away, having a grasp of the potential questions and their answers can make the process smoother. We’ve compiled a list of questions and answers encountered in the Combine Interview to assist you.
