We’ve covered a lot of general Madden 17 money plays and nano blitzes so far but you should also have some situational calls like how to stop the QB Sneak out of the Goalline formation that everyone runs on 4th and 1 or shorter.

Here is a way that works pretty consistently.  Check it out below.

Formation: Goalline 5-4-2

Play: Sam Blitz

Overview: This is a great way to stop the QB sneak or Fb dive on the goalline. It doesn’t stop the play for a loss 100% of the time, but it is about as consistent as you can expect.
