In today’s tip we are going over a new feature on defense in Madden 17, the Force defender. This defender is assigned on every play and is responsible for making sure any run to his side of the ball gets “forced” back to the inside.

In the video below, you can learn how this looks in the game and some effective strategies to make sure your force defender is doing his job properly.

To bring up the force defender pre-snap, press left or right on the right stick.
