In this Madden 17 blitz breakdown we are going over a very simple way to bring edge pressure from both sides using the same play and still maintaining good coverage behind it.

Let’s take a look at how it works.

Madden School App

Playbook: Kansas City Chiefs

Formation: 3-4 Under

Play: FS Slant 3

Setup (Left side):

  1. Base Align
  2. Pinch your defensive line and crash them left
  3. (Optional) Put your defensive end on the right in a light blue zone

Setup (Right side):

  1. Base Align

Overview: The great thing about this setup is that you can bring pressure from either side of the formation from the same play.

Let’s break this play down a little further.

This is how the play art should look with the setup that brings heat from the left.  Notice that in this setup, we are putting the defensive end on the right into a light blue zone.  That is optional.

You see right away that our blitzing safety comes screaming off the left edge.
