Madden 16 A-Gap Post Patch Nano Blitz

Consistent pressure is the key to dominating in Madden 16.  Today we are going over one of the best nano blitzes in Madden 16 that work even after the latest patch.  It is a 5 man rush that brings pressure from right up the middle and it works against both undercenter and shotgun formations.

If your opponent starts blocking extra guys, you will want to call a max coverage play instead of this one but if you are playing someone who never blocks extra guys, this play will work great.

You should only use this play in passing situations.

Madden 16 Insane Post Patch Nano Blitz: Big Dime 2-3-6 Slant Zone 2

Playbook: San Francisco 49ers and Many Others

Formation: Big Dime 2-3-6

Play: Slant Zone 2


  1. Crash your defensive line down
  2. Move your LOLB (on the right side of the screen) to the left.  See the video for exact positioning.
  3. (Optional) Adjust the zones how you’d like behind the play.

Madden School Pro Tip: Make sure to sub in a really fast outside linebacker into the LE position before the play so the pressure can get to the QB even quicker than normal.

Overview: This nano blitz doesn’t work every time but it works a lot more often than not and when it does work it is just about a guaranteed sack.  We demonstrated this play with one of the lowest rated teams in Madden 16 against one of the best teams to show that it works with any team at any level.

With the 3-4, cover 3 blitzes from outside lb, or safety, it seems like a lot of pre-snap adjusting. Do you normally have enough time to set this up? Great strategy, just seems difficult. Any suggestions?

Adam the 3-4 cover 3 is more like a 4-3. Just lab your scheme. I’m looking at some different zone blitzes. In the 2-4-5.
