Madden NFL Nickel 3-3-5 Nano Blitz – FS Middle 3

As we prepare for Madden NFL 15, Madden School guru, Yoda, walks you through an effective 4 man blitz that you can build into your Madden 25 scheme.  Blitzes that only send 4 men and leave 7 guys in coverage are very hard to beat when incorporated into your defensive schemes correctly.

Keep in mind that this isn’t an every down tip.  It is best used in situations where you know your opponent is passing.
