How to play Defense in Madden?

Any general tips? Videos to watch? Im a basketball guy and I struggle with defense in Madden games. Anything to help me with controls and how to double guys or cover slots?


  • youtube is full of video about how to defend in MADDEN. Have a look.
  • The basic concept is, on pass plays to not let WRs behind your deepest guys and to force the RBs towards your user controlled player on run plays. Its essentially the same defensive set-up that has been on madden since 2004-ish. Find a base defense that you're comfortable with and figure out what works. You can always expand off of that. Learn the shifts and what they do...they matter.
