In today’s free Madden 16 video tip, SnA Exclusive is going over how he stops one of the most popular plays in Madden NFL 16, four verticals, while still being able to do a decent job defending the run,

You can check out the full breakdown below.

Playbook: Any 4-3 playbook

Formation: 4-3 Stack

Play: Cover 4


  1. Shift your linebackers to the left
  2. Re-blitz your ROLB
  3.  Crash your defensive line to the right
  4. (Optional) QB Contain
  5. Fake blitz with the MLB over the center

Overview:  Four Verticals is a very popular play online this year due to the big potential of Aggressive Catching, the man beating crossing route and the improved HB “leak” route that beats man coverage.

Instead of using man coverage across the board from Quarters I’m going to show you a different technique which creates pressure and forces your opponent to make quick reads and can lead to a lot of turnovers.
