Playbook: Kansas City Chiefs

Formation: 3-4 Bear

Play: Cover 2 Invert

Setup 1 – Right Edge:

  2. Pinch your defensive line and crash them down (or to the right)

Overview:  The 3-4 Bear is a great blitzing formation and also great for stopping the run since you have so many guys packed into the box.

This is a starter blitz that you can incorporate to bring quick edge pressure and get quick sacks. Use this play in conjunction with you coverages to confuse your opponent.

Disguising your coverages and blitzes is one of the most paramount aspects to winning in Madden, and utilizing all of the plays shown gets you well on your way to victory.

Overview: This is a great coverage defense that takes away most options especially if your opponent starts blocking extra guys to slow down the blitzes from this formation.

Do you have any single back ace close schemes?

Thanks for the tips on the 3-4 Bear Blitzes.

2 questions:

1) What is the purpose of putting the LB into a QB spy on the blitzes? Does that do something to the reaction and movement of the offensive line to make the play work better? Just curious to understand.

2) When you talk about my opponent identifying the “Mike”, what do you mean by that? What or who is the “Mike”?

Thanks again.
