Madden 17 Nano Blitz: 3-4 Over Sting Pinch Zone

In today’s free Madden 17 tip, we are going over a play that is featured in our upcoming 3-4 based Madden 17 ebook.  That ebook will be available on Thursday to Madden School Unlimited members.

In the mean time you can check out one of the plays found inside of the ebook below.

Madden 17 eBook Preview: 3-4 Over - Sting Pinch Zone

Madden School UnlimitedPlaybook: Kansas City Chiefs

Formation: 3-4 Over

Play: Sting Pinch Zone


  1. Base Align
  2. Spread your defensive line
  3. Put your DE on the left into a QB Spy
  4. (Optional) Adjust the zones however you’d like

Overview: This is a really nice A-gap blitz that only rushes 5 guys.  Mix it in with other coverage plays from this formation to really confuse your opponents.


This is how the play should look pre-snap with a few optional zone adjustments.


This is how it will appear to the offense before the snap.  If anything they will think that the pressure will be coming from the left edge, not the middle of the field.


After the ball is snapped, you can see our MLB shoot through the A-Gap with a clear line to the quarterback.


We get the sack and an 8 yard loss.

  1. What’s the nano detector

    1. If a blitz comes in too quickly, your defender will slow down and not pursue the quarterback

  2. I play with Cincy and the playbook doesn’t have a 3-4 formation. So is it safe to use this formation?

    1. You would use the Kansas City playbook with the Bengals defense.

  3. Ok blitz but not really all that effective since u can slide protect and pick it up. Usually only effective if your team has really fast LBs

    1. Yup they will be inside of the ebook

  4. will this be out midnight west coast time or later in the day on Thursday?

  5. will the 3-4 book include ALL 3-4 formations

    1. No, it only includes the most effective ones.
