Madden 21 Film Room: 3-4 Odd Blitz Concept

In today’s Madden 21 Film Room, Deelo is going over a blitz from the 3-4 Odd formation that can get pressure while only sending 4 guys.

Check it out below!

Playbook: Green Bay Packers (and many others)

Formation: 3-4 Odd

Play: Cross 3 Fire


  1. Base align (Y/Triangle + RIGHT on the LEFT stick)
  2. Pinch defensive line (LEFT on the D-pad + DOWN on the LEFT stick)
  3. Slant defensive line outside (LEFT on the D-pad + UP on the RIGHT stick)
  4. QB contain (RB/R1 twice)

Optional Coverage Adjustments:

  1. Zone the left of screen MLB (MLB further away from the line of scrimmage)
  2. Shade overtop (Y/Triangle + UP on the RIGHT stick)
  3. User the Strong Safety in the yellow zone

Overview: This blitz can work against against 5, 6, or 7 blockers, but it will work the best when your opponent only has 5 guys blocking. You will want your fastest defensive linemen at RE, DT, and LE, as they are the players coming in free from the blitz.
