How To Read Defenses In Madden NFL 18

The single most important thing that you can do to immediately get better at Madden 18 is learning how to properly read the defense before (and after) you snap the ball.  If you know what defense your opponent is in, you should expect to get huge gains, often touchdowns, every play.

We’ve put together a full tutorial on exactly what to look for.

Still need a little more help?  We have more detailed resources for you.

Once you become comfortable reading defenses all you need is the plays that you know will beat them.  We’ve got plenty of free offensive tips or you can join Madden School Unlimited to get out best ebooks, schemes, and plays.

The how to read defenses video is outstanding! Excellent teaching!

For those of you who are new to checking out Madden-school.com, let me be the first to tell you that the read defense video is only a scratch on the surface of the awesome schemes, techniques and strategies that are taught by these seasoned experts of Madden football on both offense and defense!

Madden-school.com literally took me (a 52 yr. old man) from not knowing the difference between the X and Y buttons, to a player who wins 70% of the games I play on-line and against my young adult sons and their friends!

If you are serious about taking your Madden Football education and skills to a much higher level, don’t even think twice – become a full member!

Believe me! You will not regret it!

Thank you Madden School!
