Madden 16: Cover 2 Man Adjustments To Stop Corner Routes

Madden School Unlimited

Playbook: Any

Formation: Any

Play: 2 Man Under


  1. Place your CB’s into deep zones
  2. Place your Safety’s into buzz (purple) zones

Overview: 2 Man under is a very strong defense in Madden due to the automatic press coverage look and lock down man coverage. One play that’s always been an achilles heel to it is the corner strike play.

This tip teaches you how to eliminate that play and create bracket coverage on the outside with press man coverage in the slot and also allows you as a user to lurk over the middle of the field.

Of people are throwing C routes on you just get out of 2 man. You just made 2 man under very weak where once it was very strong.
