Defensive Money Plays Explained

With the defensive money plays that we've detailed above, it's important that you don't run them too often while you're playing online in Madden 20. Instead, we'd recommend incorporating them into your larger defensive scheme.

If you run a single play too often, chances are your opponent is going to adapt to that one particular blitz or coverage play. For example, if you show your hand too often with a single blitz, your opponent could start throwing screen passes against you to counter your blitzes.

Instead, we'd recommend holding one of these super blitzes that we've outlined above in your back pocket, for when you really need a stop. In addition, keep in mind that all of the blitz plays above are designed to counter opponents that prefer to run the ball, although they will still work against your average run play.
