Great Madden 15 Defenses To Build Your 3-4 Playbook Around

Yesterday, we posted one of our latest defenses out of the 3-4 Predator formation that received an overwhelmingly positive response.  Having a base of good blitzes to build your defense around is one of the key components to success in Madden 15.

In today’s Madden School Tutorial, we are going to go over a few blitzes and coverage defenses out of 3-4 playbooks that have worked well for our pro gamers that will be sure to help you out as well.

Let’s start first with a unique 3-4 Over scheme that incorporates 5 plays out of the formation.

Now let’s look at the 3-4 Solid formation with one of the easiest and most effective nano blitzes in Madden NFL 15.

The play is called Cover 3 and we discussed it in detail here.  You can view the video on how to set it up correctly below.

Now that we’ve covered the 3-4 Odd and 3-4 Solid, let’s also look at the 3-4 Over formation with a play Yoda went over a few months ago called Will Sam 3 that has good coverage as well as quick pressure.

The final 3-4 scheme we’re going to go over in this breakdown is from SnA Exclusive which goes over the 3-4 Bear defense and ways to get edge heat out of it.

You’ll want to mix up the plays in this scheme so your opponent doesn’t know where the pressure is coming from.
