In today’s Madden 15 defensive strategy, SnA Exclusive is going over a way to bring consistent pressure while rushing only 4 guys.  The play, 1 QB Contain, is found in the Nickel 3-3-5 formation.

This video is going to cover 3 different topics, but we are primarily focuses on the blitz:

  1. Nickel 3-3-5 – 1 QB Contain Pressure
  2. Covering drag routes with man coverage
  3. Using a “double spy” to contain QB’s

Playbook: Baltimore (or any that has the Nickel 3-3-5)

Formation: Nickel 3-3-5

Play: 1 QB Contain


  1. Pinch defensive line

Overview:  Bringing edge heat in Madden 15 is something you need to do to succeed, and when you can bring 4 people and get consistent pressure, it forces the offense to block more people or adjust their scheme. This play allows you to bring 4 (or less, actually, if you spy the RE) and get consistent heat off the right edge with solid man coverage and also a built in QB spy.
