m25 kickoff coverage

Kickoff returns are way too easy in Madden 25.  If you play against someone with any sort of skill, you will notice about 1 out of every 4 kickoffs are returned for touchdowns.  In today’s free Madden 25 tip, we are going over a way to stop that from happening.

Check out the full breakdown below.


Playbook: Any

Play: Kickoff Middle


  1. Put the kicking arrow all the way up and to the left
  2. Flick down on the right stick and quickly to the left (see the video for exact timing)

Madden School Pro Tip: Substitute a guy with high sped and hit power ratings in the far left kickoff spot.  This will help you force more fumbles.
